Our location was the new space at Tailored and Tied, a cafe and bespoke event rental in Manhattan, Montana. Luxurious and intimate, we set out to show how fabulous a destination elopement can be.
The vision was something entirely different than what Montana weddings are known for. Using tropical palms, desert tones and a sidecar motorcycle we created our California Dreaming in the Rockies inspired elopement. In shades of blush, white, cream, rose, and green. With summer peonies, poppies, garden roses and carnations and palms and pampas grass was used for their getaway ride. Cooper + Lexton of Tailored and Tied created our custom pieces and their rentals including a vintage motorcycle with a sidecar. They whipped up an amazing neon sign with the message “LOVE”, our unique name and table signs and custom paper goods.
Remy of Labellum expertly fabricated a hanging installation and neutral, desert sunset and palms inspired florals. She also used dried flower elements like pampas grass and dried ferns that can be repurposed later.
Our bride had a messy, romantic braid to pair with her pale pink fedora, encircled by dried flowers. Her simple yet elegant, two-piece dress fit perfectly with all the details of her bouquet and hat. Our groom kept it classic for a summer elopement and motorcycle ride. Our bride changed it up for a more simple satin dress for their trip off into the sunset. After popping champagne and enjoying their delicate macarons and cake they headed out from Manhattan.
Our vintage motorcycle featured a custom floral design and “just eloped” displayed on the back. As the sun went down the two escaped on a vintage motorcycle with a sidecar, headed down a dirt road toward the Rockies.
