J & B Elopement at the Salt Flats

Let me start by saying Josh and Baylie are my best friends. Upon them getting engaged in NYC during a short business trip, they asked me to help them plan their wedding. Yay! Me and Baylie immediately went to work and went a little Pinterest crazy. We had her whole wedding planned for about 100 people in an industrial style venue. As the day grew closer Baylie, her bff Bailey, and I met up at Postino to discuss wedding details over wine and bruschetta. (Denver readers: if you haven't been to Postino yet go now...like now.) We sat down at our table and Baylie dropped the bomb of news. Her and Josh no longer wanted to have a big, over the top, and over priced wedding and wanted to elope! We were surprised, but obviously wanted them to be happy more than anything else! As soon as we knew J + B wanted to elope, we contacted Morgan, their photographer, to discuss possible locations for their elopement. Morgan suggested the Salt Flats in Utah and we immediately fell in love! (How could we not, wait 'til you see these pictures!) The couple flew into Salt Lake the morning of September 9th with her bouquet from Project Floral as her carry on. The two of them got ready together in their hotel room and the crew drove the two hour drive to this picture perfect location. Upon arrival, and freaking out about the fact that they were driving and standing on top of pure salt, J + B walked off into the distance and exchanged their personal vows they had written to each other. Just the two of them, exactly the way they wanted. I cannot thank Morgan of Lady Ilg Photography enough for capturing this special day. The newlyweds capped of their wedding day by getting matching tattoos with the coordinates of where they got married. Ugh cute! See all the beyond stunning photos from this perfect day!
