This shoot has been on my mind for awhile. I wanted to incorporate a teepee but in a way that nobody has seen before. I wanted to inspire all those chic, boho brides to think outside the box and let their style show.
The shoot took place at an estate in Joshua Tree, California. The estate is backed up against piles of boulders and Joshua trees so it was the perfect setting for a romantic desert elopement. Nicole & Ron are such sweethearts. They have been together for 11 years! They met in high school and have been dating and traveling the world ever since.
The decor that was used was inspired by the boho elopement trend that has swept the wedding industry. I used pieces that were unique but that would add hints of gold here and there. I kept the colors pretty natural with a hint of burgundy to make it pop.
Erin at Oak and Amble‘s inspiration for the florals was “deep love in the desert”. “By utilizing a moody, yet earthy palette with non-traditional flowers and foliage, I could create something other than the fluffy bouquets that are all over the internet. The strawflower and tiramisu roses added pops of deep burgundy and plums, while the naked sunflowers created depth for the arrangements. Flowing grasses and eucalyptus keep things delicate to the contrasting spikes on the sunflowers and grevalia foliage.” The invites were also inspired by the desert and the adventure that love is.
