The moment we set eyes on this New Orleans Styled Elopement Shoot submitted by Lesley Boudreaux, Marketing & Event Coordinator for N-joy Weddings + Events, we knew our readers would love it!
Here’s how Lesley describes the shoot:
The story of this inspiration shoot is a love story. We were inspired by the romantic nature of an elopement and wanted to create a unique inspiration for couples hoping to bypass the stress of planning a wedding reception.
We imagined that this bride and groom wanted an intimate ceremony in a beautiful location. A 200-year old abandoned fort was the perfect place to showcase a beautiful elopement. Nestled on the coast just to the east of New Orleans, Fort Macomb offered a romantic backdrop. The pair read their vows inscribed on a scroll and shared some champagne and a slice of cake. We can imagine these two living a beautiful life together.
We made the vow scroll by heat transferring the words cut by a Silhouette onto the fabric. The small one-tier cake with silver accents was encircled by blue thistle. A painted watercolor announcement matched the cake.
