Desert Vibes and Boho Elopement Inspiration


WOW. Obsessed is an understatement with how we feel about this destination inspired styled shoot designed by Lacey Rene Studios. You might not believe us when we tell you, but this styled shoot was photographed 100% right here in Kansas - and no, we're not joking! It's breathtaking, unexpected and not in a wheat field! We can't get over it. The photographer shares, "the styled shoot had been a dream for a while. A dream centered around this one location--natural rock formations that would leave you breathless! Everything about this boho elopement styled shoot was inspired by the desolate, magnificent scene."


Let's get adventurin' and check out this styled shoot by Lacey Rene Studios!

We can't take our eyes off the vintage plates, antique glassware and lanterns provided by Ultrapom rentals! 

Would you take a look at this stellar cranberry and floral invitation suite!? Beth Laird Photo & Design deserves 5 stars for this perfect pop of color.


Groom attire on it's A-game! The textured suede of Alec's jacket is so eye catching.

For miles the eye saw only land. Land and cobalt blue sky. We flicked on the turn signal and pulled off the highway between Kansas City and Colorado onto dirt roads. But there curved down and around and below was something incredible. The Castle Rock Badlands. Seemingly hidden from the drivers eye and enough off the main road to be a location like a treasure—one eagerly sought after and searched for. But it was there. And that is exactly where the story begins

Maroon makes us SWOON.. and so does Molly in this dress! 


Blue Thistle Cakes topped their desserts with an assortment of winter berries - we LOVE.
