Soft as Velvet | Relaxed, Cozy & Intimate Elopement Inspiration


If a relaxed and intimate elopement is speaking to your wedding day love language, our Soft as Velvet editorial from the creatives behind Celebrate Dallas is for you! Full of tender romance and delicate details, this editorial embodies slow mornings, sweet kisses and neutral tones, allowing any couple to easily make their ideal ceremony uniquely theirs. The Sinclair Hotel boasts a perfect space for every event for your day – a cozy room to wake up in, a modern reception hall to dance the night away and a dreamy rooftop balcony to have the Dallas skyline be the backdrop for your intimate ceremony. Deep mauve and burgundy tones mixed with mustard and light pinks create a cozy, autumnal color palette and fall garden feel in the middle of the city. Hellebore, fritillaria, ranunculus, roses, lisianthus and snapdragons from Kate McLeod Studio bring that garden feel to the rooftop and make for a stunning altar scene with Loot Rental‘s chute rug and eclectic assortment of candlesticks.

If this editorial scene looks familiar to you, it’s because it was just that good, we had to put it on the cover! Featuring our cover image captured by the amazingly talented Sara Boyd Photography, it only took one look for us to fall head-over-heels with this couple, design and image! Our model bride graces this scene wearing the beautiful Monet gown from Grace Loves Lace – an ultra femme and romantic gown that truly took our breath away. Tease to Please Hair and Makeup created a stunning bridal glam look of a low chignon hair style and a soft yet romantic makeup look complete with hints of subtle light pink throughout. Adding a little bit of eye-catching sparkle to the look, fine jewelry from L’unique Diamonds and Fine Jewelry is the perfect diamond on top of it all. If you’ve loved every detail of this editorial, you’re not going to want to miss it in video from the makers at Ocular Pophere!

From the planner, Caitlin with Celebrate Dallas: “It is super common (and great if that’s what you choose) for the bride and groom to sleep apart the night before the wedding, but I couldn’t imagine waking up to or starting that day with anyone other than my person. For my inspiration, I imagined the sweet kisses, romantic words and little giggles the solo morning would create. I wanted to incorporate colors that would make a statement but keep the mood relaxed and cozy. Delicate little details and neutral tones created a super dreamy atmosphere, and I could picture a couple soaking up the quiet before the storm. Holding hands, fixing ties, the whole vibe would be slow and as soft as velvet. On trend colors like mustard, rose water and amethyst also flowed into the couple’s ideal ceremony — small, chic, modern and uniquely theirs.”
