New Mexico Elopement
There’s nothing quite like a romantic elopement to celebrate your love. Prepare yourself as this vibrant New Mexico elopement takes the color yellow to a whole new level. The saturated colors of the bouquet along with the vibrancy of the bride’s yellow skirt creates a jaw-dropping look to say the least. The intimate table was adorned with all shades of pink and orange flowers, with yellow glassware for an effect that would be hard to imagine anywhere else. The bouquet was full of bright, feminine colors, including hot pink and orange and a hint of lime green.
The bride and groom were dressed in their own style for this affair. The bride’s simple hairstyle and natural lip color gave a perfect contrast with the bold styling of the day. With the groom’s white button-down shirt, beige suspenders, and yellow bow-tie, these two were a pair that knew how to stand out in a crowd and we are loving every stylish minute of it.
What better way to celebrate your love than in a place that’s beautiful all year long?
New Mexico Desert Elopement ideas
The desert is a beautiful and dramatic location that can offer the perfect canvas for couples who want to elope. The area is full of different types of scenery that can lend themselves to a wide range of elopement ideas. From the rugged high desert terrain to unique natural features like rock formations, volcanic peaks and cacti, the possibilities are endless. Were talkin’ a ceremony with sweeping views of open grassland or terrain that stretches out for miles and miles.
Frequently the New Mexico desert is full of unique and colorful flora and fauna that add an extra element of magic to the scenery. Even if it isn’t spring or summer, there are still a dazzling array of flowers and cacti that can be seen. The range of things you could do for an elopement in the New Mexico desert is really only limited by your imagination.
A note from the photographer: Our delightfully fun-loving couple enjoyed an intimate elopement in the desert of New Mexico. The sweetheart table lends itself to an intimate dining experience and the evening would not be complete without the dramatic floral arrangements created by the talented Hong-Elder Floral Workroom. This floral-focused shoot was adorned with hot saturated colors in a breakaway from the contrasting new Mexico desert. Kee-Ju and Steven Hong-Elder chose the flowers to be very feminine and fun, with bold splashes of red, pink, orange, and chartreuse. The armature is also a kinetic and industrial form to add further movement and energy to the arrangements.
