Elopement in the Dolomites, Italy
From the first time I talked to Kelsey, I knew her and Nate's elopement was going to be beyond this world.
They were sweet, relaxed, passionate about each other and completely in love. All Kelsey kept saying was "I just want it to be us, I just want it to be beautiful".
We originally started out planning this elopement for Norway but when comparing weather to our time restrictions (thank you, life) we decided to move it somewhere a LITTLE more south. So we then we landed on Austria. With the mountains and stunning scenery, plus the added 10 degrees from Norway - things were lookin good.
However, about 3 months into planning, Kelsey sends me a link to a photo taken at the base of the Italian Dolomites. We were all dead. "YES!" I said. Obviously there were no complaints from her vendor crew.
And so it was. We found Kelsey and Nate an epic house in the mountain to get ready in. We spent all day drinking, laughing and getting ready with them. There was just a small group of us vendors including our team, Kati Hoy Photography, Jessica Heron Images for video and Tersilla Co. for florals. We felt like family by the end of the night.
We designed a simple and stunning ceremony space with wild florals on either side of Kelsey and Nate, framing them perfectly with the mountains behind them. We also planned an intimate dinner with Nates favorite, pizza, at the end of the night. Half of the tablescape items were brought with us from home and half, we locally sourced while traveling through Central Europe.
The emotion displayed between these two the entire day would take your breath away. There was one point during their ceremonial vows to each other where we were all in tears and I was basically sobbing. Thats what true love is, Folks.
We could not be more thrilled to show off these incredible shots from this beautiful day. Elopements bring the best of all worlds together and we are so blessed to get to be a part of these amazing couples' most special and intimate moments.
