MALLORY + ANDREW

Where do I begin with this gorgeous elopement?! Mallory and Andrew decided to elope at Mount St. Helens and it couldn’t have been more perfect of a place with the mountain behind them and the wildflowers (that somehow perfectly match their outfits?!) surrounding them. They started the day at Pips Donuts and rode bikes around the city, they stopped by my studio to grab their flowers and chat and they were on their way, and that’s one of the many reasons I love elopements. They can be whatever you want! Not only that, but you can WEAR whatever you want! Mallory wanted something different and went with this gorgeous electric blue gown that complimented her personality perfectly, and Andrew did the same in a super cool color blocked tie and red suit! I wanted their flowers to compliment their design choices and be as cool and wacky as their elopement was (did you have a chance to see her sparkly socks?) so I went with minimal blooms, and focused on the intention of each bloom instead. I also wanted to keep the flowers native to PNW since that’s where they were eloping. So, we ended up with a funky color blocked bouquet with smoke bush, echincea, hot cocoa garden roses, blue bachelor buttons and preserved mushroom (Its tucked in there!)! This elopement was an amazing challenge and inspiring overall to work on and I am beyond happy with the way everything came together!

A big thank you and shoutout to the following vendors who were also a huge part in this turning out so beautifully!
