Whimsical Styled Forest Elopement | Lauren & Tim
Goodness gracious how I love this whimsical styled forest elopement! Elopements of any type actually are so, so special. For whatever reason, elopements and intimate weddings seem to have more passion to me. They feel so raw and so real. Whether it's two lovebirds exchanging vows in the forest, on a mountaintop, or along a riverbed with their toes in the icy water, it's what dreams are made of. I love the romance behind two people running away to their favourite place to exchange their forever words. I guess I am a hopeless romantic but it makes my heart happy :)
The following shoot came to life after I heard some lyrics in a Taylor Swift song. TRUTH. You just never really know where inspiration will be found! I envisioned lace hanging from trees, forming a fort in the forest that would be the perfect escape for a couple to go and spend time together. As I began to plan this alongside a team of amazing wedding vendors, it quickly turned into a styled elopement, with the fort acting as a whimsical backdrop for wedding vows. It would be this couples wonderland, their favourite place to run away to together, this time to say I DO. Afterwards, an intimate moss covered table for two is set, complete with a chandelier of wood and flowers hanging above them from the trees and a dreamy tablescape including floral charger plates for their menus to sit on.
We wanted whimsical elopement images, images that oozed romance and images that speak to the free spirited heart. After all, I feel like free-spirited is the perfect word to describe the types of people who choose to elope. They are spontaneous, love big, and shine brightest amongst nature and in one another's arms.
I hope you love the images and if you are currently planning an elopement or intimate wedding, that you find inspiration in them. I'd love to chat about being a part of your special day. xoxo
