We love, love, love the story + inspo behind today’s adorable styled editorial, planned by Reve and captured by Karly Jo Photography. Stemming from the idea of a couple inviting their friends and family over for a backyard BBQ, then surprising them with a sweet elopement, we just love the spontaneity and romance factor of it all! This shoot is sure to inspire couples who have been considering a surprise elopement themselves and, even if you’re not planning an elopement or wedding, we think you’ll fall for all the pretty details and colors seen below!
We’re swooning over that bright poppy + rose bouquet by The Flower Shop, aren’t you? Karly Jo has more to add about that beauty…and the entire setting. This beautiful horse farm with its open farm fields, barns & and large shaded oak trees offered a perfect backdrop to celebrate the love of this stunning Midwestern Couple. The details inspired by all things Wisconsin, complete with an assortment of local cheese from the near by fromagerie and local Madison craft brew & summer-y Moscow Mules as a signature drink. The palette, bold & colorful. A stunning wildflower bouquet and a perfect DIY bridal crown made from strawberry vines are a perfect touch for this casual chic bride.
A bride who treasures simplicity would want nothing less than a turquoise ring as a wedding band and a wrist full of beautiful, local, hand crafted, gold cuffs.
Are you considering an alternative engagement ring or wedding band yourself? Tell us in the comments section below!
