Spring wedding inspiration | photo by Jack and Hannah Photo | 100 Layer Cake

Sometimes the littlest things inspire the best moments. Take this cuff bracelet. Love Tatum jewelry, along with beautiful architecture + nature inspired this springy elopement editorial by Jack & Hannah Film & Photography. With more stunning jewelry pieces, big, bright bouquets, an an airy wedding gown, we’ve definitely got May flowers on the mind after this one! (Not too long until that’s a reality, really!)

I wanted this shoot to revolve around the couple, beautiful architecture, and nature. I did not want to add an overwhelming amount of “extras” but focus on a few key things (flowers, dress, jewelry) to bring it all together. I carefully chose each shot and allowed the character of the couple’s surroundings to do the talking. Elopements are a special and simple way to declare your love for the another person- why dilute that?

This hand-beaded Sarah Janks dress pretty much sums up everything we love about spring weddings: light and wispy, romantic, playful, and all around stunning. We’ll just assume you agree.

Native Poppy sure knows how to adorn a bride in petals. Have you seen the gallery on her site? Swoon.

Hope you guys got flowers this pretty on Valentine’s Day! This Southern California wedding shoot was built off designer Danae Grace Events’ desire not just to create something based off of all the wedding trends she sees come and go, but that would make an impact in the long run. She explains, As a designer, you see trends coming and going. What I love to create and design is a timeless look with unique details that not only encompasses the vision of my clients but inspires others. We can get behind that. Shout out to Diana Marie Photography for the lovely photos!

Danae wanted to strike a balance between in-season foliage and a vintage-industrial style. She also knew the grand essence of protea would make a statement in the arrangements. And a statement they make! Looove.

Danae tells us, We used Eventful Rentals’ industrial styled table but softened the look with their vintage, tufted/upholstered chairs with fur throws to accent. Margaret Joan Florals pulled my vision to life as she found vases and holders that are in fact from the industrial era and completed the entire look.

Paris elopement | Photo by Katie Mitchell Photography | 100 Layer Cake

Guys, this Paris elopement totally just brightened our day for so many reasons. The bride and her friend Jaimi are both in the SoCal beauty biz, running Fiore Beauty, making it easy (and fun) to get all dolled up. Then there’s the fact that Jaimi’s gown ended up being Janel’s dream dress. And to make it all happen in Paris: Chris has family in Luxembourg, so it was an easy decision to get married nearby, have the honeymoon, and visit fam he hadn’t seen in years. Beautiful, right? Now, onto the pretty photos Katie Mitchell Photography sent our way…

Janel tells it, My dress was the most special and sweetest surprise! When I started describing the type of dress I would like with Jaimi, she said “That sounds like my wedding dress!”  Her dress was a gorgeous, Japanese silk custom mermaid-style gown. Shortly after our dress talk, she brought out a huge box with her wedding dress in it and said I should take it and make it my own! I was so touched and honored by her lovely gift, along with the sentiment behind the dress. I was lucky enough to have the original dress designers alter the dress, adding a slightly sexy french flair. It was also fun that Jaimi would be the one to help me get in my dress (“our” dress).

The Jardin du Luxembourg makes for quite the lovely elopement backdrop, no? Plus, photog Katie Mitchell knew all the locations to get the best shots.

C + J decided on an elopement when they realized a lot of family and friends wouldn’t be able to join the overseas festivities. Their good friends Matt + Jaimi love traveling to Paris, and were thrilled to be witnesses + companions for the big day. Janel says, From there, everything just seemed to fall in place. Sounds like it!

After our ceremony and pictures we dined at Le Coupe-Chou, a charmingly romantic restaurant we found on a walk the day before. The food was delicious the ambiance help set the mood and everyone there was so nice, it was the perfect ending to a magical day!

Congrats you two!

Hope everyone has a FABULOUS Valentine’s Day!
