This gorgeous elopement in the desert of Arizona was inspired by the combination of bohemian style and romantic details. As featured on Ruffled, this design showcases old world details, tropical florals, and boho textures.
For this shoot I wanted to put a spin on the classic concept of a desert rose – something. For example, something that is unique, rare, tough, enduring, and incredibly beautiful. I love the way this concept mirrors the sentiments in a love-filled marriage. The parallels are beautiful! The shoot took place in Arizona, where I often see many designs that are more focused on a desert boho look. More often than not, these are very literal interpretations of the landscape. I wanted to create something that felt a little more subtle, romantic, and modern. When paired with the setting it felt fresh and unexpected – like a desert rose. Above all, we wanted to create something beautiful that reflected the couple’s love.
