Renee + Jerod { Bold Urban-Chic Rooftop Elopement}

What would you do if your wedding photographer stood you up on your wedding day? Unfortunately our next couple experienced this true life wedding nightmare first hand and holy cow, I am getting a rash just thinking about it!  Lucky for them a couple years down the road they became good friends with one of the top wedding planners in Albuquerque, NM- Alena of Alena Swanson LLCRenee often discussed what she “wished their wedding would have been”, and Alena listened. Incorporating their original wedding colors of pink, cream and white, she was inspired to gather the best wedding pros in ABQ and create their dream wedding elopement shoot. This shoot was a total surprise to the model bride, who only found out days before.

From the planner, Alena:  “Using an ombre of pink and rose gold, the bling, glitter and boldness of black reflect their classy but quirky personalities. Together, they love books and reading; and every detail reflects this as well, through scrabble tiles, ampersands, and stacked book centerpieces– all the bride’s favorite things!

To get just the right color, every detail was hand crafted by wedding pros, from her pink hair to her glittery heels. The pros were so thoughtful in remaking their dream wedding- they are even eating pink strawberry cake! This unique couple loves the rare and unusual, yet beautiful things in life, so I kept this in mind when choosing pink ginger flowers, the industrial location, rose gold jewelry, and a blush wedding dress.

This type of stylized shoot sincerely emulates the spirit of the wedding industry as we bless others on their special day and do our best to go above and beyond.”

The joy of this once in a lifetime experience is real in these stunning photos, a huge thanks to  Emily Joanne Wedding Films & Photography

“The inspiration [for this styled shoot] was an elegant elopement.  We wanted to use masculine materials like dark tones and wooden accents contrasted with the softness and femininity of the bridal elements like the baby’s breath bouquet and ethereal white dress.” -Maria Socha, Sealed With A Kiss, LLC

What a great style inspiration for your own wedding!
