Oh how I wish it would snow every Christmas… When I first saw these pictures captured by Christine Sarah Photography I knew I had to share them with you. If you want to create a winter wonderland for your wedding day then this enchanting lakeside elopement shoot will surely inspire you. It’s festive, elegant, pretty and full of fabulous styling details perfect for a winter elopement or wedding anywhere.

The subtle colour palette of blue and grey hues which form the base of this concept give the cool vibe of ice and snow, with pops of purple and peach bringing the styling to life. Cortney from The Bloom & Co was created the shoot, and her styling is simple yet elegant and fun. The pretty blooms of peach and purple roses, eucalyptus and foliage really pop against the snowy backdrop of the breathtaking Crater Lake National Park in Oregon.

Forget Frozen II, here we have ideas for our own real snow queen… enjoy!

The Adventure and Simplicity of Elopements

“The lovely and talented Courtney from The Bloom and Co curated and designed this piece of heartfelt artwork. I immediately knew it would be something unique and special, but when I arrived at stunning Crater Lake and saw everything together it blew me away.

“This romantic shoot encompasses everything I love about photography, collaborations and the adventure and simplicity of elopements. The details were not overdone, but well thought out and perfectly accented by our lovely, very in love, real life couple!

“The crisp white snow reflected clean and perfect light while Crater Lake, with its deep teal waters, stunned in the background. This is the type of collaboration that sets your soul on fire and re-ignites the passion for your craft. It is reminiscent of the fleeting feeling we all have when planning a wedding. Wanting to run away together and have a romantic and adventurous elopement that focuses on nothing but the love you share. Stripping away the guest list and all the extra details can actually be this beautiful and momentous!

“We love this pretty elopement for all that it is – adventurous, romantic, beautifully curated and oh so memorable. Let the adventure begin!”
