The short answer is yes. Hot-air balloon elopements are the coolest, ever.
The crazy idea behind this epic form of elopement belongs to Ann Mark Photo. And you know we just love crazy ides! Truly pure genius to tap into this 200 year-old form of human flight. Not only is it the oldest, but *clearly* the most beautiful to watch, too!
Whether you lean into this cool elopement idea or incorporate it into your wedding (hot-air balloon exit, anyone?!), this rad editorial is sure to inspire you to reach for the clouds. A bright orange balloon is waiting for you from Air Carriage Over Texas. Up, up and away we go!
Because cool elopements are usually done without many flowers, the bride’s bouquet needs to shine! Root and Wilde has a colorful bunch for this hot-air balloon elopement, including blue baby’s breath and big, juicy peonies.
Cool cats, ready to take flight.
Everything about this Patbo wedding mini screams COOL! From the ’80s sleeves to the statement belt, it’s all so good accenting the bright hot-air balloon.
What’s more romantic, honestly? Plus, she’s a natural beauty with dewy bridal makeup from Blush N Bangs.
Prepare for hot-air balloon elopements to be a THING. Especially because couples are looking for more untraditional ways to (finally) say I do after the pandemic.
Mini dresses and elopements go together like peanut butter + jelly!
