A Mauve and Moody Elopement... A Truly Gorgeous Styled Shoot

I love when real life and design overlap. See the B+G above? Well, even though this is a styled shoot, Samantha and Justin are a real life couple. They are engaged, and while I'm not sure if they are going to elope or not, this is certainly a good way to get into the wedding-y mood. I mean... How cool is it that they get to practice getting married? Right? OMG, can you imagine if we all got a dry run?  Bitchless Bride would probably not exist if all of you brideys got to experience a practice wedding! Anyway... 

So, I put it out there that I was looking for a moody and edgy styled shoot or real wedding, and I jumped at the chance to show you this spectacular mash up of the two. I am OB SES SED with the color palette, the cakes and Samantha's tea length wedding dress. Seriously, I highly suggest that you steal from this shoot, bridey. Take everything! Take the cake (no pun!), take the gold and definitely take the fucking velvet linen! This shoot completely encompasses why I show you styled images... Because they dare to be different and rock the shit out of the norm. So, go! Steal!

The font + the gold... OMG!

My mouth just watered! I LOVE the mauve colored cake and the simple design!

It's like a little bit tie dyed, right? 

Gotta love the aeriel shot! 

Bridey, there is no reason you can't dress up your sweetheart table with velvet linen and fancy chairs! This is 100% an idea worth stealing!

Lovin' the gold flatware.

Gorgeously real shot of the B+G!

See what I mean? That dress! Totally LOVE IT! And Justin? So dapper! 

Thank you to all of the FAB vendors who teamed up to give us such great inspiration! And, thanks for sharing with Bitchless Bride!
