Canadian Badlands Elopement Inspiration by Amy Steed Photography

The Canadian Badlands are truly a sight to see, and this gorgeous elopement editorial from Amy Steed Photography, has captured them perfectly. We love the way that Amy kept the details of this shoot simple yet incredibly pretty while allowing the natural beauty around her to take center stage. This team will have people flocking to Writing on Stone Provincial Park to get married!

From photographer Amy Steed: Our goal for this sunrise elopement inspiration was to bring an organic, elegant feel to the wild beauty of the Canadian Badlands in Writing on Stone Provincial Park.  The hoodoos are a bit off the beaten path, and a landscape not often utilized by brides in Alberta, and we wanted to share inspiration that showcased how this backdrop could be transformed into a romantic location for an elopement.

For the color palette, we chose blush to keep things light and neutral with accents of gem tones to provide contrast with the desert tones of the hoodoos.  Flowers on 9th provided gorgeous florals of garden roses, ranunculus, eucalyptus, and succulents to make an elegant bouquet that tied into the desert theme seamlessly.

Our bride's natural beauty was enhanced by Eyre Blush and Christina Grace, and she wore an exquisite lace gown that was borrowed from a friend.

The ornate stationery was handmade by Little September Calligraphy, who also added the perfect touch of the calligraphy to the agate place cards, one of our favorite trends!

And for the table setting, we wanted a look that was organic and perfectly imperfect.  The table linen was a simple unbleached cotton table cloth that paired with the gold chiavari chairs to make a natural, yet polished atmosphere.

Overall the look was simple, yet romantic and organic, and it was an absolute pleasure to photograph!
