Winter Inspired Elopement | Round Mountain, TX | Texas Elopement Photographer

Updated: Oct 1

I coordinated a styled shoot this past January to bring me and Cayla's vision of a winter wedding into reality. In Texas, it doesn't necessary get *cold* during winter, but our thin blood was still shivering throughout this rainy morning! To pair with the winter theme, we chose the color pallet of pale blue, white, silver, and pops of black. We had such amazing creatives involved; from the invitations to the venue, everyone played their part perfectly.

Meet Julia, our bride:

Meet Adam, our groom:

We found Julia on a local models Facebook page. Julia found Adam. She knew we needed a male model with his own suit, so when she saw him in his custom tailor suit, she walked right up to him.

Jula: "Hi, I'm Julia. What are you doing Thursday?"

Adam: "Hi. Ummm, nothing..."

Julia: "Want to get married?"

Adam agreed straight off the bat. These two didn't know one another but their chemistry in the photos is off the charts. I'm so thankful for them!

Our venue was Elitha Mae Carriage House.

Florals were provided by Rose Colored Floral. Cake was provided by Simply Delicious Custom Cakes.

Place settings and china was provided by My China Place.

Julia did her own hair and makeup.

The invitation suite provided by Brown Fox Creative.

The engagement and wedding rings are from Dillard's.

The dress was provided by AW Bridal.

The suit was custom made and provided by Dillard's.

Julia had never seen herself in a wedding dress before and was beyond excited about how she looked! I can't wait for the day she gets to put on her very own dress to marry the love of her life.

This first look was real. Although Adam came before Julia was ready, we wanted his reaction to be authentic so asked him to wait outside until we revealed her.
