When planning to elope, our parents generation would simply put on a sensible outfit and head off to either the courthouse or Vegas. In our current culture, elopements offer an avenue of creativity, where you can splurge on the gown, the florals, the details, and still keep costs relatively low for just you and your love. This gorgeous bohemian session took place at The Boulders Grove Ranch in Yucca Valley, and The Pioneer Town Motel in Pioneer Town, California. With vibrant florals and a gorgeous desert landscape, it is hard to imagine a full wedding being much better. I really think the star of this shoot though, was the amazing lace wedding gown from The Reclamation Design Company! Trista Smith is a genius when it comes to bohemian dress design, and this flowy piece of art is what boho dreams are made of!
