A Romantically Intimate Styled Elopement in the Woods

A lush Minneapolis forest served as the backdrop for this intimate elopement, which was styled as a minimalist wedding with just the newlyweds, the beauty of the woods and their blossoming love. As much as we love the idea of an elaborate celebration, we love the thought of a private escape to declare your love for one another.

Stylist Karrah Kobus took a DIY approach for this elopement and used beautiful flowers from Trader Joeā€™s to fill the bridal bouquet and recycled beer bottle vases as centerpieces on the simple tablescape, which was brought to life with greenery, pillar candles and a striking black tablecloth to match the silverware.  Nick and Lauren Photography captured the dreamy romance of this glowing couple's adventure as they strolled through the woods, climbed a rocky waterfall and ended the night by candlelight. nick-and-lauren-photography-intimate-elopement-styled-weddingwoodsy-intimate-elopement-styled-shoot-nick-and-lauren-photographystyled-greenery-elopement-nick-and-lauren-photographytrader-joes-wedding-flowers-nick-and-lauren-photographynick-and-lauren-photography-intimate-styled-elopementrustic-greenery-tablescape-nick-and-lauren-photographydiy-styled-elopement-nick-and-lauren-photographyintimate-styled-elopement-nick-and-lauren-photographynick-and-lauren-photography-styled-elopement-shoottrader-joes-bridal-bouquet-nick-and-lauren-photographynick-and-lauren-photography-trader-joes-diy-wedding-bouquetdiy-elopement-wedding-inspiration-nick-and-lauren-photographynick-and-lauren-photography-diy-styled-wedding-elopementnick-and-lauren-photography-intimate-woodsy-elopementnick-and-lauren-photography-candle-lit-elopement
