On a warm Sunday in March I was fortunate enough to get to work with Sarah Faucette from Gold and Sage on a fun, pop up elopement styled shoot in Downtown Raleigh. Ariel Kaitlin and Alex Ross were our amazing models and such fun to work with! Ariel is normally a photographer so being on the other side of the camera for once was a fun experience!

We began the shoot by getting ready at Nancy Coudriet Bolen’s makeup studio where she did Ariel’s bridal makeup while Kat from Sky Parlour Salon worked some serious magic on her gorgeous hair. For this shoot, I had made the bouquet and bird cage veil we used by hand! The more weddings I plan the more I realize I am passionate about multiple areas of the wedding industry especially hands on parts such as florals, decor, and accessories. More of my creations to come in the Leaning Tree Shoot. For now, please enjoy our elopement photos!
