Elopement among Desert Ruins

From Charity Maurer: “Set against the backdrop of crumbling desert ruins, this dreamy styled elopement is the stuff dreams are made of. There is nothing like a groom in a classic formal tux and a delicate bride to make your heart sing! With only their maid of honor and best man to witness their marriage, this couple chose to major on the details. The harsh beauty of the desert sets off the opulent yet delicate florals that coordinate with the maid of honor’s flowing and gorgeous dress. The bride’s lace encrusted gown and delicate jewelry speak to the understated elegance of the event. Around a rustic table styled with simple beauty, the four friends share an intimate dinner celebrating the new couple. It was an honor to create this story, and we hope that it inspires brides who are considering a small but elegant wedding to make the leap. Intimate elegance is not only possible, but incredible!”

Some dream of gigantic wedding parties and receptions with all of their friends and family… but some… some dream of simplicity and intimacy. We love both types of weddings and we love the heart behind each type even more. Today’s feature is an inspiring example of small but powerful. This stunning desert elopement by Charity Maurer made our jaws drop with the painterly quality from the calming blues and greys. A bride, her best friend, a groom, his best friend… and ridiculously gorgeous florals by Hoot & Holler among desert ruins? So, so beautiful…
