From the photographer:
Sometimes there is no need for a wedding with 200 guests and a reception with lavish tables. Removing the hustle and bustle, breaking down a wedding to its core, and focusing on the couple brings meaning to the statement, “less is more.”

Lush velvet walls, a wrought iron staircase, and the quaintest little chapel, set the stage perfectly for this styled boutique elopement. A gown with a simple silhouette allowed for statement pieces like her floral duster earrings, and Juliette cap veil adorned with vintage crystals, to stand out. This look paired perfectly with the non-traditional, burgundy suit on the groom. Small, delicate greenery and floral arrangements were used to compliment the couple, without overpowering them. In the chapel, a soft touch of candle light highlighted the wonderful intimacy of the day. Minimal, yet gorgeous, inspiration for any elopement!

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
