Talk about romantic! It was just these two (and a talented team of vendors) in the woods and on a canoe in this beautiful winter lakeside elopement! We love the rustic, slightly mysterious setting. Above all, it provided a stunning backdrop and total seclusion. We’re pretty fond of the deep purple hues too.. anyone else?! Samantha Sanchez of Saje Photography describes her inspiration and how the team accomplished it to perfection below.
The vision for this elopement was inspired by the beauty of Winter. Lakeside with a lush woody backdrop created the most intimate setting. The water was calm and the cool, crisp winds were perfect ‘cuddle weather’ for the bride and groom. The bride was dressed in a flawless flowing gown, surrounded by tall pines and a quiet, peaceful lake.
The canoe, draped inspired florals of peonies, eucalyptus, soft blush roses, added a romantic touch to the images. The Petal Theory handcrafted the perfect mix of elegance and romance for the bride’s bouquet. With soft tones, an abundance of greenery and pops of plum, the color scheme enhanced the natural beauty of the winter woods.
The groom wrapped his delicate bride in a cozy fur blanket and held her close. Romance was the primary vision, and the vibe of the afternoon was just that. The pair finished the evening off nuzzled at their rustic sweetheart table covered in warm tones and gorgeous florals. The textured tablescape and handwritten calligraphy provided the perfect intimate ambiance.
