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!
