Styled Shoot | 159 Rutledge

Eloping has come to mean something different these days than in years past. It can be the traditional version with a couple heading out for a getaway and a simple ceremony a deux; it can be that plus a super styled ceremony and celebratory meal for the pair; or it can be an ultra-intimate affair with the betrothed and a few choice loved ones in a decked out but dainty setup. Today’s post focuses on the latter, and features a newly opened venue, 159 Rutledge, along with real-life married couple Maddison and Matthew (who happened to meet at Trader Joe’s). We just had to show it to you because it delivers such a bright, cheery version of a still-life setting resplendent with fruits and flowers that would be relatively easy to replicate. Got a guest list of under 10? Down with vows exchanged outside a church but before family and friends? Craving the celebration of a shared meal and cake to cut? This little to-do has it all. Long live the life of less is more luxury!
