Mogollon Rim Elopement with Lovely Bride | Arizona Weddings Magazine

Adventurous spirits do find each other, and when they do, sparks fly. That’s what Carmichael Studios captured in this daring Mogollon Rim elopement shoot. Not only do the bride and groom literally take each other’s lives into their hands while looking out over the cliffs at the Mogollon Rim, but they also shared some intimate moments beneath a teepee arbor. The unique use of rugs, skulls and flowers created a desert vibe unlike any other, and the bride’s intricate lace mermaid dress from Lovely Bride certainly completed the statement. The bride’s delicate bouquet was a collage of desert blossoms, with eucalyptus, Queen Anne’s lace and alstromeria in the mix, and their floral arrangements were equally as colorful. These were only enhanced by the vibrant surroundings, with the deep red soil, the dark green of the trees and an azure sky to add natural romance to the shoot.

With so many hues, this minimalist set wasn’t lacking anything. Using the landscape as their accessories, this couple posed on cliff ledges and under cover of trees, sharing their special moment surrounded by the magnificence of the natural world. Sedona offered a perfect backdrop for this effervescent elopement, and with the masterful design of An Enchanted Occasion Event & Design, this woodland fairytale was pulled off without a hitch.
