Elegant Columbia Gorge Elopement Inspiration
EDEN WILLOW PHOTOGRAPHY
If the Pacific North West wasn’t on your list of must-visit places before, it certainly will be after seeing today’s beautiful elopement! The stunning setting takes centre stage and provides the perfect backdrop to a timelessly elegant affair. Showcasing delicate floral arrangements with a ‘just-picked’ feel, a beautifully styled sweetheart table (with one hell of a view), and a dapper bride and groom; everything about this styled shoot illustrates an elopement need not lack any of the romance or beauty of a wedding…..
Here’s the lady behind the lens, the lovely Renee of Eden Willow Photography to tell you all about it in her own words… “Living in the northwest of the United States, we are blessed with so many awe inspiring locations. It’s always a goal of mine to take what nature provides and let it be the foundation for every shoot. This wedding inspiration shoot was inspired by the rugged beauty of the Columbia Gorge with a goal of balancing the wilderness of the northwest with items that would be elegant, but not compete with the scenery.
The florals by Swoon Floral Design are perfectly whimsical and full of lush, seasonal blooms. The gorgeous tablescape set with a striking, rocky backdrop is perfect for a bride and groom celebrating a windswept intimate wedding or elopement. The striking lace BHLDN gown is absolutely perfect for capturing the wind that the Columbia Gorge is known for. And the groom looks completely fitting in a dapper three piece plaid suite by Duchess Clothier.”
What a breathtaking location – so perfect for an elopement! A huge thankyou to all the wedding pros for their hard work behind the scenes, and especially to the lovely Renee of Eden Willow Photography for capturing every detail so beautifully.
