Jilly and Benny had been together for eight years before deciding to elope and rock this pre-elopement photo shoot at a crumbling, soon-to-be-restored villa set among a hauntingly beautiful winter backdrop. Jilly, a long-time collector of vintage attire and jewelry, provided the epic fashion, from the lace wedding dress from 1940 to floor-length coats and heels from the 1920s and 30s.

Dark and beautiful details capped off the day with whiskey cocktails, long walks on snowy paths, and candlelight inside the villa. Let's ogle this haunting winter shoot with these two gorgeous people and their elopement love…

  1. This is what they mean when people say "intimate wedding"!

    I love the cozy, vintage atmosphere so so so so so so much. The photographer nailed it.
