This couple. This kind of love. And running away to elope in Valley of Fire in such an elegant and intimate way made their day one to remember. Antonia and Thomas, our stunning bride and very sweet and handsome groom wed in a warm day in September by one of our funny, amazing officiants, Alex of Peachy Keen Unions. Antonia had long beautiful hair and strikingly beautiful eyes. Her lovely understated and beautiful makeup created a luminous glow that accented her wedding gown, which was so gorgeous. We think Thomas thought she was spectacularly lovely on her wedding day. We would agree with that!
This couple were both quiet, and intense in their love for each other. As they both read their vows to each other, a feeling of sweet and tender passion and love for each other was felt by all of us.
Antonia and Thomas had met each other when they were really just kids, at the age of 8. Their sisters were best friends and they were thrown together often because of that. Fast forward, they moved away from each other, but when they were 15 years old, they found each other again and have been dating ever since.
Eight years later, they got engaged at Christmas, one of the best times of year and here they are, marrying each other in one of the most beautiful places around, the Valley of Fire. With towering red rocks, cliffs and vast open ranges, they exchanged their vows of commitment and love to each other. In the backdrops of the red rocks of the Valley of Fire, it was an amazing place for an intimate and quiet elopement for Antonia and Thomas.

Although it was just the two of them, we set up a lovely ceremony area with decor of pampas grass and florals of peach and soft creams, and natural dried grasses in neutral tones, with flowing fabrics creating an elegant boho kind of feel.
The cake was stunning, we have to highlight that and our florals for this wedding. Both were above and beyond and created a truly lovely relaxed boho feeling for an elopement.
Antonia and Thomas, we send our very best wishes, dreams and hopes for a loving and long lasting marriage for both of you. Congratulations from all of us at Cactus and Lace Weddings!
