The emergence of fall in Colorado brings about warm + rust colored hues, dazzling sunsets that paint the sky gold… And the call of adventure. Inspired by all of this, along with a vintage forest green Pontiac Firebird, Hey! Party Collective teamed up with several other creatives for one insanely cool road trip elopement!
Nicole at Hey! Party Collective shares We wanted to emulate a spur of the moment road trip + revitalize kitschy motels. And so it goes…on a road trip in the groom’s classic green Firebird, our lovebirds throw caution to the wind, send postcards invites from the road, and get married upon arriving back in their home state. The couple moves through the space of the magical desert scene, to an intimate ground-level picnic with 360-views of the rocks, the meadows, and the hills. The table is set with super-unique stamped tin chargers and striped napkins, softened by pretty rippled plates…
Ashley Gaffney created some incredible invitation postcards. Such a fun idea for elopements!!
How GORGEOUS are those florals by We+You?!
The perfect A-frame to complement the beautiful landscape + frame the couple…
How sweet are these two?
The subdued blues + purples are reminiscent of desert sunsets… We love how they coupled this with the Terra Cotta bowls + rust-hued rugs from Hunt & Gather!
So, so PRETTY!
How GORGEOUS is this setup?!
Along with the rearview mirror ornament commemorating the wedding day, and the custom marriage license frame, Ashley Gaffney also created these leather place cards which doubled as a fun keychain piece!
How fun are these desert-inspired cookies by Valhalla Cakes?
