This bohemian elopement was nothing short of incredible. Brittany & Matt opted for a small elopement with just them, a coordinator, officiant and photographer Nikk Nguyen. The day started with a torrential downpour in Dripping Springs, TX. but the weather cleared up just in time for Nikk to capture some beautiful images.
Lucky Arrow Retreat is such an amazing new venue. Brittany and Matt both got ready in the cabins at the Retreat, in the modern and accommodating cabins. They both looked stunning in their classy suit and dress, finished off with a beautiful bohemian bridal bouquet.
A super sweet ceremony commenced, with a stunning view as the backdrop. They literally tied a knot to signify the start of their life together. They both had written beautiful personalized vows for each other. Matt had a lot of tears throughout the ceremony, and who could blame him?
After the ceremony and bride and groom portraits the couple sat down to eat together in a wonderfully set up picnic. The grazing table from Grazeology was unbelievable!
This elopement wouldn’t be complete without a first dance in the moon light, and a walk through the lantern-lit trees. I think Brittany & Matt gave the word “romantic” a whole new meaning with this wonderful elopement.
How We Met
Believe it or not Matt and I met on Bumble. I gave it three shots and he was my third. He had recently moved to Houston from Birmingham and I was his first date!
It’s pretty hard to surprise me, I pick up on every detail. We had just moved into our new home and a week later, on Matt’s Birthday, he proposed after opening his gifts. Talk about surprised! It speaks volumes to how selfless he is.
We knew we didn’t necessarily want a big wedding, however, we wanted something memorable. We decided to elope, just us, somewhere we loved. I scoured wedding sites and decided I loved the styled elopement idea. We wanted to keep the intimacy while also having others feel like they got to experience the day right along with us through our pictures. The Texas hill country was a no brainier for us. When I came across Lucky Arrow Retreat and saw that view I knew it was the spot! We wanted timeless and classy while also a bit boho and rustic. It all came together better than we could have imagined it!
