Swifties Will Love This 1989 Inspired Colorado Elopement Inspiration Shoot

January 24, 2024 | justine

When a bunch of wedding vendors who absolutely love Taylor Swift join forces, something magical takes place—a Colorado elopement inspiration shoot inspired by the vibes of 1989. And we can’t get enough of it! Creating this styled shoot was a true labor of love, and we’re completely hooked. Every person involved is a huge fan, making it feel natural to bring their Swiftie passion from their hearts into a photo studio.

Since Taylor Swift herself can’t quite decide if 1989 is more of a beach or city album, our talented team embraced both vibes. The industrial studio and courthouse evoked the original NYC aesthetic, while the florist and stationer infused a touch of the beach into their designs. The ceremony space featured a round arch adorned with folded paper planes and grounded arrangements of florals, greenery, and pampas. Moving to the intimate reception table for two, it showcased sand-colored linen, delicate blooms, and candles, all against the backdrop of the same arch. The result? A perfect blend of city chic and beach elegance.

The beauty looks for this inspired shoot were carefully curated, ranging from the “classic red lip thing that you like” to the “long hair slicked back,” serving as their hair and makeup muse. And that’s not all. There are even more details that will leave you in awe. Calling all Swifties, you absolutely need to check this out!

Why a 1989-Inspired Colorado Elopement Inspiration

This shoot was the result of a group of Swiftie wedding vendors challenging ourselves to see how many 1989 (Taylor’s version) lyrical references we could include in a styled shoot, keeping it subtle enough for the casual observer to see it as “just” a city elopement while leaving easter eggs that any true fan will obsess over and find ways to incorporate into their own wedding planning. From the seagulls and paper airplanes used in the stationery and decor to using lyrics for posing cues like “just take my hand and don’t ever drop it” or “you stand with your hand on my waistline,” we had a blast putting this all together—and we think any Swifties planning their wedding would love it, too.
