This Roller Rink Elopement Will Totally Take You Back!

80s Retro Roller Rink Elopement

Let’s go back to those days when pizza, disco balls, music, and hearing, “Couple skate!” over the speakers were the the things that mattered most in life. Seriously–is there anything better than a skate party?! We don’t think there is and photographer, Nadine Berns, certainly agrees. She designed + photographed the MOST FUN elopement inspirational shoot with all the color, all the glitter, and all the confetti! And we’re all about it, after all, the best day of your life should also be a total ball!

Nadine gave us some behind-the-scenes details from the day: I was scrolling through BHLDN one day, you know, daydreaming about my future wedding dress when, BAM! There it was, the Wyndham gown. My imagination ran WILD! The couple I photographed were actually heavily into roller derby; Kellie, the bride, did roller derby and Marc, the groom, was her coach/referee!  We celebrated with pizza and beer and the roller rink played disco music for us the whole time. It was just an incredibly magical day full of kindness and big hearts. I couldn’t of asked for a better couple or a better team. 

Turn up the music, grab a slice, and let’s roll! Nadine Berns Photography, take it away:

We like to think that Amber at For Love and Lettering pulled out her gel pens from her zipper case for this one :) She lettered lyrics on old records for some great photo ops!
