We have endured CO-VID for too long and we decided to rebel! No more doom and gloom, no more! We are excited and while things are very different, there are so many good things going on in this world that we are so grateful for. The sun still shines on us, we still have good people surrounding us, nature is still here waiting to envelop us in her arms with all kinds of adventures for us to explore. So this elopement represents all of that, wrapped up in fuschia pink, bold orange, and summer yellow. We wanted to make summer come to life for this stylized wedding shoot! Come along with us and enjoy our summer escape!

Our popsicle vendor, The Joy Pop Company, (just the name makes us happy) created some amazing, hardy popsicles chock full of cool juicy fruits. Oh, so many custom flavors in colors and textures just brimming with the flavors of summer. A special cooler kept these babies ice-cold, just what we need on a hot day.

We have a new cookie vendor on board as well, who messaged us one day out of the blue and offered to make us some special wedding cookies! Little Sister-Big Brother Cookies created some amazing bright, bold hand-decorated cookies in all kinds of shapes, even a cookie wedding bouquet, and a wedding cake cookie!

Our hair and makeup preferred vendor Ruby Finch Salon got up way before dawn, along with our models to make it out to Valley of Fire in time just as the sun rose above those red cliffs. Our model’s hair was done perfectly to match our vibe, and her makeup had a radiance and glow that was stunning with just the perfect blend of bright tones.

Our model bride Zhaire, wore a pantsuit that we loved! Designed by Lulu, it added just the right touch of lighthearted joy. And our groom was not to be outdone. We used an island vibe pattern to add life in a wearable way, made and designed by Aloha Billy, from Hawaii.

The Front Porch added a bouquet and centerpiece just for us that was full of floral wizardry and color, just exploding with bright and bold summer tones. Floral always make everything better.

And tying it all together, in a loving official kind of way, was one of our top-notch officiants, Angie of Peachy Keen Unions, who came all the way out, again at dawn to be with us and marry our pretend couple in a hilariously light-hearted ceremony!

Come join us, and we would be glad to create a beautiful popup wedding just for you! Skip the big wedding, we arrange it all, and guess what! Right now is the season – we will be ready and waiting for you!
