an elopement

| Nov 9, 2010

mckall & taylor elope

cascade springs, midway, utah


sometimes i think if i was to do it all over again, i might just elope.  my favorite weddings i attend are the smallest ones.  i just adore when couples keep the guest list simple and just surround themselves by the ones they love most.

i worked on this with my favorite stylist kami christensen.  kami and i decided to go with this simple idea and style a wedding that showed simplicity and beauty at it’s best.  so we decided to style an elopement.   what i love and adore about kami’s style is that she likes to push traditional style, but still create something that can be wearable on anyone.   together we styled mckall and tyler and kami perfected the look with the most gorgeous hair and makeup.   the ceremony site and flowers were all created by  the beautiful and talented sarah winward.
