Intimate Morning Elopement in Prince Edward Country

There is something to be said about the art of the “morning of”. The nervous jitters, the swirling magnitude of the day ahead, and the moments full of careful planning and intention. This inspiration shoot from Rosenlee Photography captures all of the intimacy and beauty of this special time. Full of stunning details coordinated by Johanna Lee Weddings & Events, all brides should take note of the full effect of timeless calligraphy and thoughtfully chosen heirlooms. Aspen Florist crafts a textural, yet romantic design for a one-of-a-kind elopement.

From the photographer: “The vision for this inspirational shoot came from the quaint church that was converted into a beautiful living space in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada.  The space was absolutely stunning with gold and black accents, beautiful historical architecture, and modern day fixes. Our vision was to create an intimate setting for the bride and groom to get ready, enjoy breakfast, and elope in seclusion. The colour palette of creams, blacks, and golds were present throughout the details, florals, tablescape, stationary, and jewellery.  Floral arches, film photography, vintage accessories, and watercolour love notes really pulled together the fine art approach we were aiming to achieve.”

More from the photographer: “The morning started off with a bridal boudoir session featuring beautiful pieces from Southern Charm Vintage Rentals.  Old fashioned mirrors, rotary dial phones, and bespoke makeup accessories.  Our model was wearing a beautiful sheer housecoat from Lover’s Lane and had on Savannah Miller lingerie. Pancakes were made and styled beautifully with marble cake plates and blueberries.  Morning mimosas, black rimmed plates, and cream and black table runners pulled our colour palette and theme together beautifully.  The dessert station was equally as stunning with delicious pastries, a his and hers cake, and a variety of fruits.  Gold and black tappers were used to help create a romantic atmosphere and florals were used everywhere.

The main attraction of this inspiration shoot was the beautiful floral arch created by Aspen Florist.  Vows were exchanged in front of the arch and the portraits of the couple in front of the cascading floral arrangement are magical.  The bride was wearing a Rue de Seine gown from Lovers Land and the lace detailing and low back allowed for us to add a very unique floral tattoo to her back. “
