Elopements – some people might not understand ’em. But let’s get real, elopements can be an amazingly less expensive and equally more intimate way of celebrating your marriage to the person you love. I mean, my father was practically begging me to elope. “Use the money for an amazing honeymoon, a down payment on a house, anything” He all but broke my ribs hinting at his desire for grandchildren. But in the end…I wanted the big wedding.

While elopements aren’t for everyone, they can be a totally beautiful way to celebrate your marriage to your best friend. I love how the photographers of Anna + Mateo Photography have captured that feeling with this romantic DC elopement shoot.

And just because you ran away to get married doesn’t mean you don’t want to share your great news with everyone. That is where I come in! Custom elopement postcards can be an easy way to spread the word and give everyone a glimpse of your special day.

These postcards are made out of heavy, luxurious paper and each was individually hand marbled for a unique effect. The simple elegance of the marbling and flourished calligraphy reflect the peaceful, loving day this couple experienced.

Nod to Cinderella

Have you seen Disney’s newest version of the live-action Cinderella? If you are like me, you were entranced by the vibrant colors, gorgeous details, and of course the kindness and elegance of Cinderella herself. I am not ashamed to say that it was one of my favorite movies of 2015!

What bride doesn’t wish for a little bit of that elegance and magic on her wedding day? Thanks to the amazing talents of Hillary Muelleck Photography and Kortney Cooper Dowell we were able to create a little bit of that magic in this vintage-modern stylized shoot.

We are so excited and honored to have this shoot featured on Wedding Chicks! You can check out their site for more details on  how our vision came together!
