Bridal Inspiration: Texas Elopement at an Alpaca Ranch

This feature is for all of our brides who are animal lovers. Hosting your wedding or elopement at a ranch is a great way to incorporate both animals and nature. Even if you are not looking to host a ranch wedding, this editorial has beautiful elegant styling and details your are sure to love.

When styling this elopement, the creative team wanted to “challenge the trend of eloping in epic locations and instead bring the ideas of a stunning elopement home to the great state of Texas.” Sydney & Ryan Photography said, “To bring this bohemian elopement vision to life, we needed an actual couple with great chemistry and the ability to display a joyful and fun vibe with the alpacas. We found that in our models (an engaged couple who will be marrying this July!), Moriah and Caleb.”

“ We chose a color palette with pops of mustard, burgundy, and blush to compliment the many colors of the alpacas. Texture was an important element of our shoot, from the fur of the alpacas, the velvet in the flat lay styling to the suede, mustard shoes.”
