boho chic dry garden elopement

From Kim Branagan Photography “This boho-chic elopement inspiration shoot was brought about through a desire to show a gorgeous, picturesque, dream elopement that is still approachable and attainable. This is inspiration for the couple that goes where the wind takes them and likes to keep things personal yet still fun, funky, and memorable!”

“The location, The Ruth Bancroft Gardens, was the cactus-filled canvas that we built from and everything from the rug the couple got married on, to the jewelry layered on the bride’s fingers referenced the style and vibe of this free-spirited couple.

The jewelry was especially exciting as it showcases the idea that the traditional engagement ring isn’t your only option if that’s not your style! Young in the Mountains makes amazing stackable and customizable engagement and wedding band sets that can be completely personal to your own style.”

“The multicolored green tones of the cacti/succulents/agave plants provided the perfect backdrop that needed no embellishment and accents of blood orange and deep red in the flowers and the picnic provided just the right amount of vintage feel!”
