Bohemian Desert Elopement Inspiration

desert elopement

We’ve got just the thing to get you lovelies through the rest of your Monday! An ultra-dreamy bohemian desert styled elopement, from Chelsea Nicole Photography, that will no doubt have you feeling both serene + inspired. We’re always a fan of desert details + we’re pretty crazy about the super pretty wedding dresses, those lace dreamcatchers and the succulent-clad tablescape featured in this editorial. So many great ideas that would easily translate to fêtes of so many kinds!

From Chelsea, The shoot was set in the ruins of an old ghost town and Death Valley with the majestic Nevada-California mountains as the backdrop. It tells the story of a carefree, spirited girl who drifts asleep and awakens to a romantic elopement. A tablescape for two was styled by The Wooden Trunk, with simple potted succulents and assorted dusty blooms with small pops of color. And the bride’s wedding dresses were custom-made and designed by Sophia Rose Bridal.

Bohemian Farm-to-Table Wedding Inspiration

Bohemian Farm-to-Table just might be our new fave wedding theme. Organic, rustic, and romantic, it’s the perfect design direction for couples who are getting married in a barn or on a farm and want to inject a little bit of whimsical style into the setting!

Today’s styled shoot, conceptualized for Lauren Fair Photography’s recent workshop, incorporated a gorgeous floating garden rose + greenery backdrop, a custom bronze + teak farm table, hand-painted paper goods, a beautiful BHLDN gown, and lots of farm-fresh design elements. Let’s check it out, shall we?

Laidback Los Angeles Wedding: Jeanne + Alex

flower crown bride

Guys, say hello to Jeanne + Alex, a super cute duo who loves LA, good food, live music and – of course – each other! They tied the knot at one of Los Angeles’ raddest venues, Elysian, an urban oasis that runs right alongside the LA River. Their goal was to keep the day simple, and focus on love + community. So inviting some of their close friends to play live music throughout the ceremony + reception was a must and family members came together and helped bake desserts + decorate the venue.

We’re totally loving the berry + green color palette, the plethora of pretty eucalyptus garlands, and Jeanne’s stunning sheath dress from Paris 1900. And let’s face it, there really couldn’t have been anyone better than the talented gals from Rad + In Love to capture J + A’s fun and laidback day! These images are just so pretty…

From Rad + In Love, At one point Jeanne got up and surprised Alex by beautifully singing Daniel Johnston’s “True Love Will Find You In The End”. The funny thing is, Alex had wanted to sing that to Jeanne on their wedding night but chickened out! He sat and watched her with a smile on his face tears in his eyes.

Ask for help! We couldn't have done it alone, and having our friends and family involved made it so much more meaningful. Alex's father and several of our friends played the music, my sister designed and baked delicious cookies for favors that my whole family decorated, our friends helped design and decorate everything, as well as haul flowers/liquor/you name it to the venue. Our wedding day was truly a labor of love. Also, just know and accept that while things will inevitably go wrong, the only thing that matters is that you're marrying the person you love.

 
And to get an even better feel of the music from their wedding, Dart DJ put together this fun mix below!
