Earlier this year I coordinated a group of wonderful Pocono vendors to collaborate on an elopement giveaway at the utterly breathtaking Promise Ridge in Stroudsburg, PA. We did a giveaway last year, so I was excited to do another one but with a theme close to my heart - boho moon vibes. Covid changed some of our plans, but ultimately it turned out just as it should have.
To enter to win, contestants were asked to describe what they love about their partner and what is unique to their story. We were blessed with Kit & Shawn as our couple, who were so graciously thankful for their prizes. They included Kit's beautiful little girls in their elopement, and it couldn't have been a more perfect night.
Main Squeeze Rentals provided the sweetheart's table sets, while Allium Floral Design provided the florals. They did an absolutely incredible job, check it out:
Even though a flash flood warning threatened to damper the night, nothing could diffuse the excitement in the air. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and took place in a custom moon bench made by Hand Sawn. Alisa Tongg officiated the ceremony, which was beautifully written and customized especially for these two. I loved how the children were included in the ceremony by blessing their wedding rings and bearing witness to them signing their marriage license on the moon. So precious.
Kitchen Chemistry provided the cake, which was just as delicious as it was beautiful, and it looked gorgeous with the florals from Allium Floral Design:
Bonnie Flaherty also joined us and did a live painting of their ceremony - it's absolutely beautiful, and I cannot wait to see the finished product! Here it is in progress at the event:
The love between these two was palpable, and I'm so glad they were living for this moon theme!
And even though I don't usually do black & white photos, I did enjoy playing with black & white to capture the old silent films that inspired this giveaway:
Congrats to this perfect fam!
