Sometimes it just takes one jaw-dropping photo to seal the deal. And we’re willing to bet this moonstruck image will influence more than one of you to plan a dreamy own salt flats wedding or elopement! There’s much more to love ahead if this photo doesn’t seal the deal, but first let’s talk location! Salt flats are an ethereal phenomenon that covers stretches of ground with salt and other minerals. They’re often found in deserts and naturally formed from evaporated lakes or ponds and the Bonneville Salt Flats in northwestern Utah are the largest of their kind. Surely, this environment is unmatched in the race of the coolest places to elope!
Stars and weddings have been trendy for a while now, and Brittney Couture Photography certainly has a celestial passion. She shares her vision for this stunning elopement inspiration: It may be a trend as of late, but I’ve always been into incorporating stars. To illustrate this, the Bonneville Salt Flats are the perfect place to highlight this vibe. I’ve had this idea in my head for a long time, and we wanted to create a moon-like celestial atmosphere for the overall shoot. Specifically, this opening image! I call it the dirty dancing pose.
This celestial elopement inspo features two models who are a very real, married couple IRL! Clearly, their chemistry is written in the stars. In addition to a dreamy, dried bridal bouquet + stellar style, this editorial provides multiple elopement portrait poses! Soak up the moonlight and all this salty love.
The Celestial Wedding Dress
The bride’s dress by Boom Blush is from Raw + Golden Rentals. Surely, rocking an epic thread on your wedding day is something we can get behind! Shiny, white reflections from the sun allow this dress to totally take over.
Surprisingly, this dried bridal bouquet breathes so much life into this overall aesthetic! Who knew dried flowers could speak such volumes? The Foxy Flora knew. This bouquet is rad and gives great shape.
