Inspired by the wild romance of a Carolina sunset, this Blue Ridge Parkway elopement inspiration is giving us total wanderlust! It doesn’t get much better than this shoot’s Sarah Seven bridal gown, hand-dyed boho macramé ceremony backdrop, and edgy groom style. Muted, lush florals from Philo Floral and vintage rentals from A Darling Day contribute a sophisticated and whimsical style to this absolutely gorgeous inspiration shoot. Photographer Julia Madden Sears captured this shoot with the majestic rolling hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop!
From the photographer: I wanted this to feel as if a mermaid ran away to get married in the mountains, shouting celebration to all the good parts of late summer. It’s intended to marry the wild and unabashed nature of landscape and full throttle-love with the softer, quiet moments that carry you through such an intimate day, as well as highlight some of the lesser known charms of the south and small southern vendors.

I still get surprised at how a Bohemian touch can give a magical sort of feel. You’re either a fairy or you’re Princess Jasmine (as in Aladdin.)
Boho chic at it’s finest!
