About the shoot
Dana of Wild + Wed dreamed up this free-spirited elopement inspiration shoot after being in quarantine for months, which fueled her hunger to get creative. Her Dad’s vintage ’77 Grand Prix was the focal point of the editorial and her parent’s home, right outside the White Mountains of New Hampshire, was the ideal backdrop for the elopement. Using the car’s baby blue color as inspiration, and the natural beauty of summertime in New England, the planning began.
Dana and Sarah, of Bounty O’Blooms, decided that a bold and boho floral design would complement the feel of the editorial perfectly. Sarah crafted a wildly lush bridal bouquet, complete with feathers and velvet blue ribbons, an ornate headpiece for the model bride, Tatum, to achieve a forest goddess look and a massive spilling car install that was jaw-dropping.
Dana wanted to embrace the unique nature of the editorial and opted for an unconventional bridal look. Tatum rocked a vintage-inspired For Love and Lemons mini dress with floral lace and puff sleeves, an ethereal tulle veil and baby blue Chuck Taylors (adorned with custom T and H charms for her initials.) An ombre blue drip cake, crafted by Taylor of Village Baking Co., a leather elopement announcement suite, designed by Dani of Paper Cliché, and blue taper candles glowing in the woods at sunset all further brought this elopement inspiration shoot to life.
