I love elopements. Even as someone who makes their money off of larger weddings I have a huge spot in my heart for small intimate ceremonies. I've seen too many brides stressed out and unable to actually mentally and emotionally experience their wedding day. Eloping takes all the pressure off, it takes away all the fluff and all the worry; it is true, intimate and real. So when people ask me to do flowers for their elopements I have a hard time saying no. They truly are my favorite.
So today I wanted to share a recent elopement with you. The marriage of Laura and Matthew.
Laura wanted me to make her a crown, boutonniere and bouquet. She asked for white and blush with elements of the forest mixed in. I purchased local Tulips, Roses and other filler flowers from the market and I foraged the rest! My aunt let me cut white Camellias and Japanese Pieris from her garden and I went into a nearby alley way for some Cedar and Ferns.
Congrats to Laura and Matthew! I loved being a part of their little ceremony. So beautiful.
