Mississippi Styled Canyon Elopement

Here is a bit about today's styled elopement by Blackbird Creative:

"You hope and pray about a shoot coming together this perfectly, and it's rarely that easy, but when the day came the rain stayed away and things couldn’t have fallen into place any better.
We had been thinking of what amazing backgrounds our home state of Mississippi provides for an assortment of possibilities for this shoot. You don’t always have to leave your comfort zone to find a magical place. One of our favorites is Red Bluff, just 45 mins from Hattiesburg.

Elopements, especially ones that include visually striking backdrops, are very enticing to u
s. It really just comes down to the couple. You can see just as much emotion in a simple exchanging of vows as you can a large ceremony . Full weddings are wonderful community events for family and friends, and we love that just as much. But on the flip side of that coin, there is something so tender about the intimacy of an elopement, a couple wrapped up in one another without distraction. We wanted to provide our audience with what we see as a wonderful possibility for just that type of couple.

We wanted wanted a story and a scenario that would be accessible. A beautiful couple that uses a place near and dear to their heart as the canvas for their love story. We wanted the details to be limited but impactful; Wildflowers and foliage plucked from the bride's family garden, the color scheme of their wardrobe blending with their surroundings and heartfelt vows to read to one another. It may have been fiction, but we felt like we were witnessing something beautiful, raw, and real We literally had tears in our eyes!"
