Eloping Never Looked So Pretty!

If you’ve ever, and I mean EVER toyed with the idea of an elopement, this inspiration shoot is about to convince you completely. Set in Venice, Italy with breathtaking architecture and a classic gondola ride, consider this your visual blueprint designed by Atrendy Wedding for a European “I do.” Go see the gallery by Eric Kelley for even more moments to love.

From the vendors… A timeless styled photo shoot that inspired an enchanting, Old World dream. We were inspired by the blossoming wisteria, the bustling waterways and intimate canals… the most beautiful city in the world. An outdoor ceremony in the garden of the Belmond Cipriani followed by an intimate dinner creation under the purple wisteria set the Venetian mood. We took advantage of the quintessential beauty of the city exploring bridges, hidden alleys and the famous stone paved St. Mark’s Square. A palette of white and green with pops of pink and orange enhanced the natural setting without distracting from this city’s natural beauty. The Venice canals were highlighted in the watercolor paper suite, and a gondola ride for the bride and groom were key elements of this quintessential Italian shoot.

This Engagement Session Will Have You Booking a flight to Venice ASAP

As if we needed another reason to packs our bag and move to Venice PRONTO, this engagement session is certainly it. Overflowing with romance, gondola rides, AND the most adorable couple ever, we’ve got it all captured by Thecablookfotolab waiting for you in The Vault!

From ThecablookfotolabThese 2 lovebirds literally stole my heart. I think that people in love is the most harmonious thing ever. The way they look at each other, the way they keep the hands, the way they touch, everything around seem to be electrified by their emotion. For me this shooting was like a movie: so natural and easy. I love so much the idea of a destination engagement! What can be more romantic? Only destination engagement in Venice that ends in the gondola sailing to the sunset.

From the Bride-to-be…Alex was scheduled to go on a 6 month overseas assignment for work in March 2015. The week before he left, we went on a “farewell” road trip up the coast of California. He proposed in Big Sur at sunset on the beach, just the two of us. It was very exciting, but his departure was looming over us. The first six months of our engagement were definitely difficult, as he was in a remote place and had limited access to the internet (even less access to a phone!) So when he came home in September, we wanted to take a special trip to celebrate our engagement and being reunited. We decided to go to Italy because it is so romantic! I wanted to take engagement pictures in Venice so that we would always have a reminder of those happy moments. I found Darya on Style Me Pretty’s vendor guide and fell in love with the style of her photography immediately. It is so natural and filled with emotion. Alex and I were both apprehensive about taking photographs because don’t love having our pictures taken and thought we would feel awkward. However Darya made us feel SO comfortable and natural. She ended up spending the entire day with us, instead of just the few hours we booked her for, and we had such fun getting lost in Venice with her. The day that we thought be a chore ended up being the highlight of our whole trip. We can’t wait to see Darya again, hopefully soon!

Venice to be exact, and this pretty lil’ inspo from Sapphire Events and Archetype Studio is worth the trip because it’s out of this world lovely. A luxe layering of Laura Hooper Calligraphy and Melissa’s Fine Pastries, you’re going to want to see it all in The Vault!

From Koby & Terilyn Brown, Archetype StudioWhat a beautiful relationship Jeni & Roberto have, and getting to know them through this shoot was magical.  We could not have predicted that out of 137 churches currently standing in Venice, we would scout and pre-pick the very one they were standing in front of when he first told her he loved her!  As we approached it about halfway through the shoot, Jeni turned to me and whispered,  “How did you know?!”   You will see it in their eyes… this kind of love brings a magic that affects everyone around them.
