An intimate and majestic Middle-earth elopement in New Zealand (with a rainbow!)

Kyle is an extrovert and wanted a large wedding in our hometown with all of our family and friends. I wanted a small elopement on top of a mountain in New Zealand where they filmed The Lord of the Rings. I wanted to feel like I was journeying across Middle-earth with the one I love. I wanted our wedding to be an adventure.

We decided to do both! Here's our magical Middle-earth elopement…

A macrame wedding backdrop is the BEST way to reuse wedding decor

Macrame wall hangings are the hottest shit in home decor right now and you can harness their boho-meets-'70s vibe for your wedding, too. After the ceremony, hang it up behind your sweetheart table. Then wrap it up and hang it on your wall at home. No wasted money AND a new killer wall hanging!

An Andy Warhol-inspired wedding had an artist's eye and it totally shows

Gina and DJ had an art-inspired wedding with one of the most interesting cakes with an amazing story.

You'll want a bookstore photo session after seeing this retro wedding inspiration

This ultra stylish, 1950s-themed wedding inspiration got us right in the bookish feels. The bookstore backdrop is tickling our geeky hearts. I'm loving the aesthetic of myriad piles of books, shelves receding into the distance, and old wood from floor to ceiling. I wish we had scratch-n-sniff technology for the book smell! Plus, it's totally a stealable idea for your own engagement shoot or wedding portraits.
