Unique and Intimate Salt Flats Elopement Inspiration

Utah Styled Shoot

The Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah are a beautiful white backdrop, created by nature, for any wedding, bridals or elopement. This styled shoot is meant to inspire couples planning an elopement to use their unique ideas and creativity to make their day entirely about them and what they love. We are obsessed with that backdrop by Rustic Urban Goods!

The Inspiration

For Spring/Summer 2020 brides, the last thing they would have foreseen was becoming a pandemic bride. Each one had envisioned what their magical days would entail, from the familiar faces of friends and loved ones to specific venues that carried out their fairy-tale visions, the sudden absence of these key components created devastation. During the pandemic’s onset, brides were rightfully panicking. Rather than postponing, many were deciding to have an intimate elopement now and a large celebration with family and friends later when restrictions were no longer an issue. Watching this heartache unfold, I immediately knew there had to be a way to bring the excitement back into these couples’ lives. I wanted to make their now intimate ceremonies visually memorable. It was my desire to create looks at an affordable cost, allowing brides to have beauty and uniqueness – whether it be for a handful of guests or for hundreds. Many were scrambling to find an outdoor location to exchange vows with their limited guests. This styled shoot was created with the intention to show brides they don’t need to sacrifice venue details for small outdoor celebrations. With a number of backdrops and rugs, Rustic Urban Goods has options to bring the venue appearance to them and still create looks they have been dreaming about.
