Hot Air Balloon Elopement


The Balloon

This hot air balloon elopement shoot was held at the San Marcos Regional Airport. The kind and very safety conscious Art with Air Carriage over Texas gave an everyone an experience of a lifetime! They love to be a part of couples big days, weather its an elopement (Art is even an ordained minister), or if you want your guests at your wedding to have an amazing experience they also attend receptions or have had a flight be the exit for the couple as they fly off into the clouds as husband and wife!

The Flowers

The florals were provided by Root and Wilde and were so amazing at matching the colors of the balloon which was not guaranteed colors on the day so they did an amazing job!

The Tables-cape

This plated table was provided by Table Manners in Austin TX. These beautiful plates, the silver, the wood and those adorable tiny coffee cups. We were all just captivated by this simple beauty that took us all across the world to France or Greece or just a dreamy dreamy place.

The Models

Amelia and Austin are actually not married quiet yet…they are engaged and just couldn’t wait to experience something like this. We barely needed to direct these two they are just SO IN LOVE! It was a breeze to work with them as they were constantly making each other laugh. They fully embraced this whole thing and allowed themselves to just take it all in. You should learn from these two if you are engaged and embrace it all because you too will leave with an experience of a lifetime.

Amelia’s make up was done by the very talented Blush N Bangs! Make sure to book them for your next event because the look was just dreamy!

The Unexpected

Yes my children were involved in this shoot, though not initially planned.

No joke, I took my little ones from their beds and strapped them in the car seat at 5 something am and we raced to the airport for our shoot! 

As soon as we arrived Mayah spilled a yogurt drink πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€£ in the car which I still need to wash out and even the male model offered to help πŸ’•

We had all 3 kiddos with us during a shoot but they were all so amazing the entire time. We even received compliments on their behavior and kind words! 

They got to experience a photoshoot, a hot air balloon and a beautiful example of love with our engaged models πŸ₯°

It was amazing and I felt so encouraged by @annmark.photo and I’m still thinking of ways to thank my amazing husband who really worked so hard helping me with the kids AND getting some amazing shots for this whole thing!!! 

The kids even got to go in the Balloon and Art from @txballoonflights was so safety conscious and even involved them in getting the balloon all packed up! 

I packed the iPad but never once needed it πŸ’• so thankful! 

Oh yeah and I forgot Mayah’s shoes and pants πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€ͺπŸ˜† we made it workπŸ‘πŸ» #workingmomlife
