Maryland Winter Elopement
Updated: Mar 5
A winter elopement in the middle of a field with hand picked details perfectly complimented the personalities of Rhett & Lydia.
Rhett & Lydia are old souls with a love for authentic timelessness and for each other. From a vintage milk truck mobile bar to a feathered bowtie to the mustardy velvet touches, their day radiated class with a fun southern flair.
Lydia paired a cream sweater with a stunning lace white skirt, giving her a classic yet cozy appeal. The warm and cool white tones balanced each other out and gave Lydia the unique look that she was aiming for. Rhett wore a vintage inspired brown tweed suit with corresponding details. To complement the guinea feather bow tie, the stationer tied in a guinea fowl envelope liner to the invite suite, which added a fun element of pattern to the gallery. Color was present in the bold florals that danced their way throughout the field; adorning a table, tap truck, loveseat, and even Lydia in their majestic wintery beauty.
Rhett & Lydia represent those who put their marriage before a large wedding. They represent those who can wait no longer to be married despite the time of year, or even a worldwide pandemic. These images are inspired by fine art film, but with their own little fun, funky twist!
The creative team that executed this vision deserves more credit than I will ever be able to write into words. I am forever in awe of the talent that each individual possesses and the magic that happens when we all work together.
