Radiance is the name of the game for this fine art elopement where old meets new and bold meets classic. This courthouse aesthetic is dreamy enough, but add peachy blooms, candlelight and die cut paperie with soft color blends to the setting, and you have yourself an unforgettable scene. The architect behind this romantic elopement story was none other than The Apostolic Wife , whose fetching designs were captured with grace and tenderness by Love & Covenant and Wild Love Photo. Flowering the scene with dogwoods, ranunculus, tulips, roses, scabiosa and the like was Gather & Grace Designs, and the result is utterly enchanting. See the inspiration in full glory below, and be sure to comment with your favorite design detail!
From the planner + designer, The Apostolic Wife: I am very inspired by elopements and micro weddings. There’s something about intimate gatherings with your closest loved ones that just doesn’t compare to large weddings. You don’t need to have a large guest list to create an incredibly beautiful day with lots of special and chic details. I wanted to create a shoot inspired by fine art details: natural, organic, and sophisticated elements—with a modern & chic spin. We hosted the shoot at an old federal courthouse built in 1905 that has since been converted into a boutique hotel, so I worked the design around the original elements of the building: creating a floral design to complement the large columns on the grand front steps, and using neutral colors with pops of pink and modern touches to juxtapose the marble coated walls and the terrazzo floors. With intimate gatherings, you get an opportunity to create big impacts with florals and beautiful tablescapes that create a dreamy & moody experience.
