A woodland elopement sounds downright dreamy to me. Simple, sweet, stylish, intimate and meaningful – these nuptials captured by Christie Graham Photography are magical to say the very least. It’s yet another example of why elopements will always be my very favorite, and you can see even more here.
From Christie Graham Photography…When a company called Young, Hip & Married marries you, it’s going to be one for the books.
Suzanne and Boyd wanted their wedding to be the perfect reflection of their love. A no-fuss day was a must. Keeping it simple, their guest list consisted of their two mothers to act as witnesses (and their two pups, Ruby and George, adorned in DIY gold bows, of course!). Suzanne and Boyd chose a quiet ceremony spot along a trail in Pacific Spirit Park in Vancouver, BC where they often walk their dash hounds. It was a twenty minute walk down the trail, which made for extra butterflies for the bride and groom for their emotional first look before the ceremony.
This wedding was filled with unique elements… Suzanne was adorned in her grandmother’s vintage jewels, two beautiful engagement rings (lucky girl!) and a vintage gown she added to herself. The sewing project wasn’t enough for her, so Suzanne also DIY’s a banner sign and brought along a few sweet treats- cupcakes and champagne- to add to the celebration. Her something blue? Blue fingernails! The couple decided not to exchange rings, but instead read special vows to one another declaring their love and commitment. It was a special day, inspired by the simplicity and beauty of their love and couldn’t have been more perfect.
