White Sands Weekend Elopement

With as many fanciful gigantic weddings as there are floating around on the internet today, when people think of the word elopement, they often find it synonymous with “boring” or “unimpressive.” Don’t get us wrong, a hassle-free quick trip to City Hall can be quite the romantic outing, or so we’ve been told. But, for those future newlyweds out there who want to have a wedding with the smallest of guests in attendance, they may not feel like they can do what they want without leaving someone off the guest list or booking a large venue. Well, this real wedding proves all of those assumptions false.

Ashley and Jared run the DIY creative lifestyle blog Sugar & Cloth, so naturally they have a penchant for bringing their aesthetic visions to life, and their own elopement was no exception. With only 12 people in attendance, the two lovebirds exchanged vows in the middle of the desert, White Sands National Monument to be exact. Thus, the perfect backdrop for a romantic, chic small affair was set.

We were thrilled to provide the floor tables and seating for the group. We also created a small sweetheart lounge and provided our Moroccan rug, Melinda, for the couple to stand on together during the ceremony. It all turned out too perfect and we are so grateful we have clients who want to use our pieces in creative, unconventional ways.
