Motorcycle Elopement Inspiration

As elopements have become more + more popular, we’ve seen lots of beautiful editorials, designed to inspired couples to stylishly run away and marry their love! The vision for today’s styled shoot, by Danielle Poff PhotographyTinker Tin Trailer Co., and Wilder Floral Co., was to push the boundaries + celebrate the couple who has a more reckless, bohemian love story. Staged at Cayucos Creek Barn – along California’s central coast – details like a motorcycle, vintage trailer, wild floral garlands, and other free-spirited styling elements, allowed the team to deliver us a setting that is sure to motivate couples who want to march to the beat of their own drum and do something just a little bit different…

From Jaime from Tinker Trailer, The theme for this inspiration elopement shoot was a rough and real reckless love! Weddings, are more personalized events these days. Many couples add unique touches to make their wedding more intimate, through DIY and Pinterest decor, or by bringing in their whole living room as a lounge for the guests. We love this look, but it inspired us for this shoot to capture the exact opposite! Let’s strip away all the details, let’s take out the glitz and glam and showcase a simple elopement… raw and true love.. reckless as it may be! Let’s runaway on our bike.. and live in a trailer, and love and be real!! The adventure truly begins then! 

That ultra-pretty bouquet is a fun juxtaposition to the otherwise wild + free environment.

No elopement would be complete without a romantic meal with your honey!

Major flower love…
