Magical Elopement at Horseshoe Bend: Jamie + Justin

Arizona Elopement

We love Instagram for so many reasons. Of course we LOVE sharing our fave photos from GWS features, but we also love hearing amazing stories, like the one behind today’s wedding, about couples who meet the love of their life on the social media platform! ♥ Jamie + Justin, who met on Instagram three years ago, tied the knot in the prettiest of places, Horseshoe Bend + Antelope Canyon in Arizona. They didn’t want anything crazy for their wedding; just to be together somewhere beautiful. As soon as they found Horseshoe Bend, they knew it would be an epic place to tie the knot. And total bonus: they also were able avoid some of the heavy costs that go into putting on a full fledged wedding + were given the freedom to be able to invest in the areas that mattered most to them.

More about the sweet way they met, from Jamie, Justin and I met 3 years ago when we each had made the big move to LA to pursue careers in the entertainment industry. Never did we imagine that it would lead us to finding each other in the midst of our careers. I came from Northern California while Justin came all the way from the Midwest. We actually first connected through Instagram and eventually met in person. Justin had been commenting on a ton of my photos all at once and I thought to myself “who is this cute guy liking all my photos?!” It’s been a dream together and we connect and relate on so many levels. We feel extremely blessed to have each other to lean on and this elopement was a dream come true.

Thanks so much to Priscila Valentina for the breathtaking images below + biggest congrats to Jamie + Justin on their magical elopement!!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

One of my favorite parts of the day was our first look when I came riding up to Justin on a horse, it felt like I was a princess meeting my knight.

How perfect is Jamie’s pink lace Free People dress? She couldn’t have chosen a better dress for the day + its surroundings! She paired the boho frock with stunning necklaces from Free To Wander Designs + Shop Sparrow, along with camel booties by Bed Stu.

Jamie shares, We love bohemian style so we wanted to encapsulate this look for our elopement. The whole day ended up being so perfect with our vows on the edge of the cliff, I couldn’t have dreamt of anything better.
