From Laura Colby Photography:
When it came time to plan this special day, our vision was more than just making inspiration for other brides…it was also the story of a real couple. Our real-life couple Kathy and Jonathan had never been able to have a wedding of their own. We thought it would be the perfect way to invite them to a day dedicated just for them, a day where they could really celebrate their love for each other in an intimate, beautiful setting. They were treated to a day of laughter, love, and were finally able to say their vows to each other whilst enjoying their evening celebrating one another. That’s why this is more than just an elopement inspiration shoot; this was our gift to our beautiful couple, and after all, that’s what this is about.
The vision for our couple’s elopement was inspired by the natural elements of the mountains and the couples love for each other. The idyllic scenery found at SkyPark Weddings was the perfect location for this romantic elopement. There is something about the mountains that makes you feel as though you are truly alone, and beauty can be found here. Skyforest, CA ended up being the most intimate setting for our couple, with the weather also being overcast and cool. Our couple’s love for each other outweighed the overcast, as their love was felt through their beautifully scripted vows, and their tender touch. The sun kept peeking in and out as we heard thunder rumbling. Shorty after, it down poured. The thunder and rain made for a calm and cozy day. The bride was dressed in a flawless beaded gown from Mariposa Bridal Boutique, and featured a plunging neckline — our groom couldn’t take his eyes off of her!
Bloom Theory Design handcrafted the floral arrangements and selected white lisianthus, soft peach roses, blue thistle and lavender. With soft muted tones, lush greenery and pops of peach, the color palette enhanced the natural beauty of the greenery in the natural forest. It was the perfect mix of elegance and romance.
The vendor team worked together to create a beautiful elopement inspiration shoot and the results were nothing short of a romantic, intimate, with a timeless aesthetic. This was a day that could not have come together more seamlessly had it not been for the incredible team involved.
