“This styled elopement was inspired by the earthy natural hues of the hills, but we knew we also wanted to include color because it would really pop in the desert,” says Oregon Elevated Events' Janane Doutrich of this romantic setup, designed for an adventure-loving couple in the Painted Hills. “The fun color palette, disco balls and funky stationery suite winked at the ’70s!”

The groom’s rust-colored suit reflected the surrounding vistas, while the bride’s ethereal dress, with its billowy sleeves, floated in the wind. Floral arrangements were composed of seasonal blooms like wildflowers and peonies, which flowed into a bridal bouquet gathered with silk ribbons.

This season is all about dainty florals and mindfully placed blooms.

“Massive bouquets are beautiful, but a smaller amount of flowers forces the designer to really be mindful about the placement of each flower," says Morgan Westerberg-Jackson of Blomstra Floral Co. That same aesthetic carried to the tablescape, with its intentionally simple design elements, such as bud vases, colored glassware, retro paper elements and disco balls (a favorite of the couple). The petite cake was decorated with strokes of fiery colors and a few choice blooms. Understated yet statement-making at the same time, this scene showcases what an intimate wedding could look like in a remote location.
