‘Easy, Care-Free, Boho’ Back to Nature Relaxed Elopement Inspiration

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you are all well and happy and have had a good week so far? I am super excited as I am off on my holidays today, we are off to Cornwall for a week. We have a couple of hotels booked and the rest of it will be staying at my mums house. I haven’t seen her since last August, so it will be good to catch up at last. I can’t wait for a bit of time to relax, chill and hopefully enjoy some beach days. I will keep you updated with my holiday through my Instagram stories.  Today I have this delightful styled shoot to share with you from Haus of Gravity and Compass Collection . The shoot took place in June 2019 at Peckett’s on Sugar Hill, Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. It is a relaxed, laid back take on the whole Boho look. Taking inspiration from nature and keeping things simple, the shoot is a great example of how you can create an elopement in great style but with minimal fuss.

Dana from Haus of Gravity tells us more about the shoot

Each June in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire, beautiful lupines pop up along the roads and fields.  They’re wild, lush and the perfect backdrop for a photoshoot.  This was the original inspiration behind the editorial, and why the purple palette was chosen.  Unfortunately, due to a dry spring season, the lupines were late to bloom and were not prevalent like they usually are.  The team made the best of things, however, and carried on and everything ended up falling into place, perfectly.

The editorial was designed with a real elopement feel/timeline in mind, so everything from getting ready and ceremony, to portraits and cake was included.  An easy, care-free, boho theme was the focal point.  Model bride, Blake, rocked a lace, flare sleeve dress and chic faux snakeskin booties.  She donned an effortlessly chic braided hairstyle and fresh and dewy bridal makeup.  Model groom, Evan, sported a crisp white shirt and gray slacks for a carefree, boy-next-door vibe.

The venor team’s goal was to fully encompass and accentuate nature’s gorgeous backdrop, so the decor was minimal, the floral design was bold and the poses/photography style was nostalgic.  We used the direct sunlight to our advantage – and gorgeous shadows of light strobed across Blake’s face.  The greenhouse at the venue and nearby Echo Lake were utilized for creative bridal portraits.  Acrylic vows (painted with purple backs), a bold spackle style cake and custom matching jackets were the perfect subtle, yet impactful, accents.  The golden glow of the sun settled behind the mountains as the day came to a close.
