From Jennie at Green Blossom Photography – “The Paint Mines in Colorado (so named because historic Native American communities used the colored clay to paint pottery) is full of nooks and crannies and sweeping views. We didn’t feel that it needed much embellishment to be the perfect backdrop for an intimate, romantic elopement!”
“The barrenness and slight desert feel of the location lent itself to a relaxed boho style and we chose a lace two-piece dress that would flow in the wind. We chose a headpiece that matched the succulent necklace and kept the hair and make-up relaxed and soft. We wanted to avoid the typical southwest feel, but we sent a nod to the desert inspiration with tons of succulents, air plants, and feathers in the bouquet.”
“For the stationary, we played off the rust and pink colors of the paint mines rock formations. A naked cake with minimal florals perfectly complimented the intimate feel of the shoot and our models, real couple Becca and Hillary, rocked the chemistry out of the park.
One of my favorite parts of the shoot was listening to them read their vows to each other (so sweet!) and then exploring the crest of the mines for the fantastic views.”
