Winter elopement in the desert
Desert brides, you’ll be so into this elopement inspiration Natalie Schutt Photography & Michelle Lillywhite Photography sent our way. They wanted to make the most of the desert wedding trend, yet keep it film-like and ethereal, and of course—super unique. With this copper gown, big bouquet + all the details below, no doubt they pulled it off big time!
A few planning tips from the team…
When designing a wedding or elopement, we believe it is super important to have a consistent color palette. Choosing a few colors that tease the eye beautifully and sticking to them really helps elevate your look. We also found that remembering what season you are in is key as well, and thinking outside the box when it comes to representing that season in your details makes for an inspiring day. We had a lovely AirBNB to get ready in (future brides: such a good idea! AirBNBs can be up to par with interior design and give you a nice clean slate to work with) and photograph all of our details in as well!
Natalie + Michelle enlisted Rooted Florals to mirror desert blooms with their color palette.
Another way they played up the season? This deep earth tone Free People gown. So gorg.
These two are actually getting married later this year (Jackie Rose is a fashion stylist too), so they had a blast getting to connect during this editorial. Thanks to Natalie + Michelle for sharing today!
