Romantic Natural Elopement

Photos By: Julie Cate

Elopements are beautiful in their own right. It’s when you get back to basics, focusing on just the two of you. Julie Cate was inspired by the beauty in natural simplicity and sent over these images that are the very definition of inspiration.

From the photographer, Julie Cate: This is a simple take on an elopement, simple classic wedding. I love white and natural elements, so I grabbed white flowers from Fresh Market and pulled off greenery from the back yard :) My couple, Mar and Steve, who are already married, joined me in St Augustine, Florida. I love St Augustine, but I really wanted to avoid the typical painted doors and obvious tourist places. The brass candlesticks were my favorite. I really wanted to show readers that table decor and attire can be simple, easy and still beautiful.
