I think the thing that stands out most about this wedding is the bride's dress was her mother's! I already wrote about this in my Instagram post, but I just can't get over it. My mom's wedding dress had shoulder pads, YES SHOULDER PADS. I know that was the style which is why this is so miraculous to me haha! This one has bell sleeves and is perfect in every single way.
The groom's details were fantastic too, from his gold sparkly socks to his jacket and finished with that scorpion bolo tie. I'll never be half as cool as these two, but luckily I got to tag along on their wedding day and pretend we are now best friends forever.
This city & desert elopement was absolute magic. We met downtown and wandered the sights before heading to the desert so they could say their vows. And then we finished the night off with some celebratory drinks! Maria is an aerialist, that will make sense about halfway down :) and Max is a musician and these two are what dreams are made of!

In one of our first correspondence emails, Deidre had shared that her soon to be husband was "very Italian and refuses to see me in my dress before the wedding". Which might sound pretty standard for typical weddings. But this was a first for me with an elopement!
The showed up in the same car, her driving and him blindfolded! He stayed blindfolded until she walked down the aisle, and Victoria (our officiant!) untied his scarf. The look on his face was EVERYTHING!
Now, should I talk about Elvis????? He played acoustic versions of old love songs and it was incredibly romantic. All through their vows to each other, tears were shed as he strummed along. Then it became official and they danced and celebrated and hot damn, it was glorious.
These are some of my favorite images! Cannot wait to share these with the world!
