Free-Spirited Boho Elopement
Vanessa + Austin’s Free-Spirited Boho Elopement:
I don’t mind your odd behavior
It’s the very thing I love
If you were an ice cream flavor
You would be my favorite one
My imagination sees you
Like a painting by Van Gogh
Starry nights and bright sunflowers
Follow you where you may go
Oh, I’ve loved you from the start
In every single way
And more each passing day
You are brighter than the stars…
~”All About Your Heart” song by Mindy Gledhill
Rings can be such personal and meaningful part of a couple’s union. And since Vanessa’s engagement ring was handed down from Austin’s grandmother, it also becomes a precious heirloom. Also, how cool is Austin’s Jack Daniel’s barrel wedding band!? So original!
After a beautiful ceremony, V+A made their way over to Pierponts for an intimate, private dinner with family.
Gushing (and drooling…) over this gorgeous naked cake all decked out in florals by Dolce Bakes.
Talk about top shelf! Pierponts bar is an impressive 9 shelved bar with architectural elements dating from 1914.
A HUGE congrats to you both, Vanessa + Austin! We loved everything about this lovely afternoon elopement, especially the two of you! Intimate, whimsical, and fun with just the essentials. Family, love and plenty of laughter. You don’t need much else!
