Sleek Elopement

August 2, 2017

Elizabeth Carberry of egcarberry and Lauren Miller of Lauren Louise Photography designed an urban styled elopement at DC’s first micro hotel, Hotel Hive, located near the George Washington University campus. All inspiration for the shoot originated from the hotel’s truly unique design and architecture; we chose modern, geometric elements to go a long with the non-traditional style of the wedding. The couple’s style is sleek, mature, and Hollywood-esque complete with a refurbished ’62 Jaguar, a custom designed suit from J.Hilburn, along with a ton of other local details. The couple’s non-traditional celebration is a private affair with just the two of them and all their favorite local DC vendors.

The vibe of the elopement is modern, urban and non-traditional. The couple’s style is sleek, mature, movie star-esque, cool, and unorthodox. The couple (the models were hired) is old school and cares about tradition in the sense of their love (they wrote their vows together) but non-traditional in that they want their love and the celebration of their love to be a private affair.

As far as dress, we went with something sleek and simple paired with a leather jacket. The groom (who is also a stylist at J.Hilburn) custom designed his tux specifically for this shoot. As far as a color palette, very basic shades (white and black) with subtle hints of color (red, sage, tan.)
