If someone found a genie in a lamp, and wished for a magical land…it would be Cappadocia. This wanderlust city in Turkey is known for endless hot air balloons. To Michelle and Rustin, who are adventure lovers, taking advantage of this epic setting was a no-brainer!
Michelle shares insight into this literal dream-of-an-elopement: We love to travel + we knew we wanted our elopement to be somewhere epic. Equally as important, we wanted to go somewhere adventurous, and fell in love with the Turkey hot air balloons that fly over Cappadocia. Merging an adventure and an elopement was part of the allure and this was exactly what we were looking for.
Certainly, this area has magic in the air. With hot air balloons, fairy chimneys, camels, mystic valleys and more, LOTTY H. Photography has more than enough beauty to capture! Not to mention, M + R who have an enchanting vow exchange and some serious camel snuggles!
Epic Elopement in Cappadocia with Endless Hot Air Balloons
Get a load of that glow! As shown above, Michelle radiates beauty in her Willowby Watters sheer, embroidery gown.
Sharing our vows with the hot air balloons all around us. It truly felt like a fairy tale, and it will be a memory we will never forget.
Capturing the hot air balloons in Turkey, along with the mystic landscape is so important! It’s a slice of heaven! In preparation for epic shots like this, M + R went up in a hot air balloon to scout some perfect spots.
Romantic Walks Through Cappadocia
Obviously, the couple needed a chic snuggle session with Lyla, the camel. Three beauties right there!
Go for it! Eloping was the best decision we made, because it was all about us! Do what means the most to you, and follow your heart. It isn’t about anyone else but you and your partner.
Is a hot air balloon elopement the coolest thing ever? Next to this adventure, we think so…
