Retro Thanksgiving Elopement

thanksgiving elopement

Everyone knows Thanksgiving is all about the food – and has been for decades. Yet even more than the food, it’s about coming together as a family. This sweet Thanksgiving themed shoot was inspired by the nostalgic and cutting edge food trends of the 1960’s – the colors, styles, and even the corning ware! This is the story of a bride and groom who embraced the edgy rebel idea of an elopement while sticking to the tradition of coming home to their families for a Thanksgiving meal…
