Sarah + Stevie's Styled Elopement

Hawaii elopement photo

The inspiration behind this shoot came from the fact that we absolutely love intimate elopements just as much, if not more than big weddings. We want to inspire couples, who contemplate eloping but perhaps also want to celebrate with family and friends and find themselves divided between a large party and intimate getaway. Couples that go for a big wedding can still privately celebrate and enjoy the intimacy of an elopement feel by keeping a small part of their day just to themselves. Whether you’re having an intimate elopement or a large wedding that you want to have an intimate feel, this woodland elopement inspiration is for you! The moody vibes and minimal details were all we needed to get completely swept away by this enchanting styled elopement! We designed this shoot from top to bottom- creating the table designs, bar cart, cake, florals, jewelry, and we even chose the dresses! Sara's gorgeous haku was made by local vendor La'ahia. We  let the natural beauty of forest speak for itself and added just a touch of modern, textural florals and greenery  to add a bit of color to the shoot. For a touch of whimsy, the brides wore vintage statement jewelry that added a boho feel to the entire shoot. Between the vibrant, summery color palette, the intimate setup, and the complementary gowns we’re having trouble thinking of anything more romantic than this styled forest elopement! All the joy of the day was also captured on film, with a short highlight video that of Sarah + Stevie.
