Olivia and Jake explored Olympia's glamorous urban backdrop in this styled depiction of a city elopement, beautifully captured and showcased in color as well as black and white by Holly from Lily and Fern Photography. The shoot was a showcase of fashion, beauty and minimalistic details that offered a contemporary take on the newlywed photo session among the streets of a beloved city. The concept of the shoot centered around an elevated elopement that channels an urban romance in a stylish locale, highlighting some of Olympia's most grandiose buildings. Baby's breath, crisp white roses and eucalyptus were elegantly paired to create a striking and romantic bouquet that bride Olivia adorned for photos. The "Millow" gown from Raw + Golden Rentals made for a jaw-dropping bridal look; the flowing dress with dramatic bohemian sleeves and an alluring leg slit is a carefully draped creation that suits our bride perfectly as a showcase of chic, understated sophistication. To accessorize, Olivia shows her affinity for the trendy bow, with gorgeous embellished heels and a delicate ribbon pulling her hair into a half-up style. Jake brought an edge of his own with a moody, black tuxedo that channeled formal elegance with a clean cut style. To end their stylish day, our couple took a seat to enjoy bites of cake from TIER, aptly served in champagne glasses for an extra whimsical photo-op. 

My vision for the day was a classy elopement in a city hall type location.
