Ashley & Evan: Fine Art Boho Elopement


I bet when you think of an elopement you don’t think of staying in. Do you? When Ashley and Evan told me about their plan, I saw the immediate genius in them. They had just renovated their amazing home and decided to elope in Des Moines into the absolute marvelousness they had designed. They scoured the midwest for amazing pieces and combined them into a masterpiece of functional, modern charm. As you take a look through their photos, keep an eye out for their beautiful mirrors, unique art, open shelving, and absolutely perfect lighting. And what about their amazing dark floors that took my breath away? They dared to do it and the confidence in their eye for design paid off. Look at this place!

This wedding is extra special to me, because I was given the honor of being Ashley’s witness. Just five humans (and two pups) in a room, kicking off the life Ashley and Evan were officially starting together. They kept the ceremony intimate and celebrated the surprise news with family and friends in the coming weeks.

I have to tell you that I think elopements are the way to go. They may be a handful of people or include a larger group, but the simplicity of them is just something that my soul feeds on. I’m so in love with this idea!
