2020. It may have seemed like the world was burning, but we actually didn’t have a bad year. We managed to escape the virus (knock on wood). We got the kinks worked out of our website, social media and business procedures. We were in a position to be able to accept any and all work that came our way so we got to be a part of several elopements and micro weddings. We got to participate in a couple of stellar styled shoots. And we got to jump right into some bigger and more involved ceremonies. The best part of 2020 was the people we got to meet – in a time that felt isolated, we were able to connect with a wonderful creative community, and we also met some amazing, kind, supportive couples and families.
India and Alyson
The first couple of the Holiday elopements falls into that category. They were our very first couple to book, way back in 2019. They ended up having to postpone their wedding to next year, but wanted to have a small ceremony at home on December 18th.
India gave me some general requests and ideas and then let me take it from there. I went with winter whites, platinum metallics and dried textures to give it a seasonal winter garden feeling.
Tiffany and Harry
Tiffany eloped on Christmas Eve at the Worthington, I told her it was the most romantic thing I could think of! She also let me do what I wanted, for the most part, so I had a lot of fun with her bouquet. I used my favorite white roses (Playa Blanca) and added lots of cool winter texture and some dried grasses. My favorite touch was the spiky datura pods that were a cooler find at the flower market!
Denise eloped on New Years Eve, which turned out to be a cold and rainy day. But it was our first chance to work with The Schoolhouse, near Bishop Arts in Dallas, and it was absolutely cozy and lovely inside. What a delight. They have their own copper arch, which Denise wanted to add some boho accents to. Pampas grass and anthuriums were called for.
Her bouquet was a super fun combo of Shimmer roses, anthuriums, anemones, and dried ferns, thistle and pampas. I loved what she picked out!
