MY “ELOPE YOUR LIFE” CORE VALUES
If you’re anything like me, you don’t have answers for “What’s your favorite ______” type of questions. But those question responses are always fun to hear! So I’m compromising and attempting to narrow down my 5 favorite adventure elopement bouquets that I’ve ever photographed. And believe me when I say: this was difficult.
I went back and forth and back again. Ultimately, this needed to be a reflection on the bouquet and not the elopement overall, and oh my goodness this has been difficult! I’m also biased toward certain colors, but overall, for my style of photography and capturing moments, these just jived!
DISCLAIMER (because, you know, this is totally a legitimate, objective ranking): You could probably switch any image with its neighbor and I’d still be okay with the ranking. Because it’s so hard to choose which is better when they’re all gorgeous!
Let’s count down my top 5 favorite adventure elopement bouquets…
5. TROPICAL KAUAI BOUQUET
It’s sometimes, but not often, I get tropical bouquets in tropical locations (instead of tropical bouquets in temperate locations). The colors and use of orchids, and unusual florals and foliage really worked well with Deidra and Juan’s horseback riding elopement on Kauai. Every
4. BRIGHT JEWEL & SUMMER TONED BOUQUET
I’m always loving colorful bouquets! They are the easiest way to add personality, whether it’s through your favorite color, or a loved one’s favorite flower who won’t be present at the ceremony. Ali and Eli celebrated their big day with a Redwoods and Oregon Coast elopement on the summer solstice! Side note: they also celebrated the solstice by jumping over fire in their wedding attire on the beach. How cool, right?
3. LARGE EVERGREEN WILDFLOWER TEXTURED BOUQUET
This bouquet was of my own creation for a texture, wildflower and evergreen inspired Redwoods and Oregon Coast elopement. Pampas grass, thistles, pine branches, and so much more made this a beautiful complement to the location. I’m a sucker for texture and color, can you tell yet?
2. FALL JEWEL TONED, TEXTURED BOUQUET
My people. This bouquet incorporated succulents, pampas grass, roses, lotus-like pods, thistles, and willow vines. What a gorgeous and unique bouquet for Noey and Jeramie’s Lone Pine/Alabama Hills intimate wedding!
1. LUSH RED JEWEL TONED BOUQUET
This bouquet belonged to Allison and her beau, Brooks. They eloped in the California Redwoods and the colors were rich, bold, beautiful, and complemented their surroundings perfectly. I remember when I saw this bouquet; my jaw dropped. I’m a sucker for these colors and it’s such a refreshing change from the (still beautiful) lighter colors and silver dollar eucalyptus.
These florals all were so unique and represented each couple and their vibe. I see a lot of whites, blushes, and greens and while those are gorgeous in their own right, it’s always fun to see something that’s a little more vibrant and outside of the normal floral set!
