Are you and your S.O. planning to elope and looking for ways to turn the special moment into an all-day event? You’ve come to the right place. This retro-inspired elopement designed by the talented Nancy Weber of Functions Pittsburgh is filled with steal-worthy ideas for those who just want to run off with their honey and exchange “I dos!” It’s also totally fit for couples who consider themselves kids at heart, too. “We designed this shoot to provide colorful inspiration for the couple who just wants to have fun,” says Nancy. She teamed up an amazing crew of vendors, such as Holly Hanna Floral and Kaitlin Powell Photography, to create a concept that featured lively, eclectic design elements, modern wardrobe choices, and details that “speak to wild hearts,” adds Nancy.
So couples who don’t want to go through the many hoops of planning a wedding, why not consider eloping and check out the fun-filled shoot below! Because, let’s be honest. Who wouldn’t want to hit up some arcade games, chow down on Nashville hot chicken sandwiches, and sip some bubbly from a champagne vending machine to celebrate becoming newlyweds? Count us in!
The Dress: To lean into their unconventional theme, the model rocked a chic short dress accessorized with puff sleeves and a deep V-neck by Watters. The statement wedding-look was completed with a pair of slide-on heels, and a pop of pink eyeshadow.
This hairstyle is too rad! The braided pony look works great for those with longer hair and want to keep their ‘do off of their face throughout their event. It also a must if you have an open back dress!
Along with the arcade games, this shoot also features a mobile drink bar!
Raise your hand if you also love a Nashville hot chicken sandwich? We also are obsessing over the menu cards used in this styled shoot. They give off an old-school vibe, which also pairs well with the shoot’s unique theme.
