Fall Desert Elopement Inspiration
Wild Love Photography
Today’s shoot abounds with the most breathtaking florals in rich Fall colors that pop against the dramatic desert backdrop. Captured at Enchanted Rock, a hidden gem just outside Austin, the creative team mixed vintage details with boho and rustic charm, to bring together this truly inspiring elopement editorial…..
Photographer Christine Pegany of Wild Love Photography shared these words about the shoot and how it all came together….“It began, as any engagement does, with a ring and a ring box. Finding the perfect ring to match a perfect girl is a hard task but the unique cognac ring is different yet beautiful and it is all the more perfect when presented in a glass ring box. When you’re looking for a grand adventure to showcase how grand your love is an elopement is the obvious choice.
The location is the most important part of any elopement – finding the spot that reflects your personality and sense of adventure. It has to be perfect for your special day and sometimes that location isn’t as far from home as you think. Just outside of Austin you can find the breathtaking Enchanted Rock, the little hidden gem you would never expect. It’s fit with stunning orange rocks and amazing views of the hill country surrounding it.
The vivid colors of the scenery inspired the use of beautiful cognac leather throughout the details. It can be found in little things like the glasses, the suspenders, the luggage tags, but perhaps the perfect way to make it part of their day was the matching hiking boots that matched their sense of adventure and willingness to climb to greatness. The dress with stunning lace details and a beautiful train was perfect for the bride and a fun brown suit topped off with an amazing hat fit the groom perfectly.
The beautiful flowers complimented the scenery perfectly and made the bride look even more stunning without over taking her – it was the perfect bit of color that was needed. The bright oranges and pops of pink make this summer elopement one of a kind. It also comes together with the cakes that were almost too pretty to eat filled with a bouquet of flowers.
All of the details come together to paint a picture of love and beauty. What better way to share their new union with friends and family by sending out an announcement covered in hand drawn flowers and amazing script with just a touch of leather before they fly off on their next adventure with their customized luggage tags and passport covers to hold their tickets for the future.”
