Even some ultra-stylish couples are drawn to the idea of eloping: a relaxed wedding day, just about their love story, preferably somewhere in nature and anything but conventional. This team of Wisconsin wedding pros set out to inspire this type of effortlessly cool, chill AF couple with a rustic and folksy elopement editorial. In this iteration, boho meets 1930s home decor while the woodsy Wisconsin backdrop inspires everything, down to the smallest styling details. If you’ve got an impressive collection of antique housewares and just a touch of carpentry know-how, this elopement inspiration could easily become a DIY guide for your intimate, backyard wedding day!
We’re SO loving this wedding stationery by The Constant Scribe—especially the nature-inspired wax seal! Oh, and the woodsy styling details? Just perfect for this Wisconsin elopement inspiration. (Also, is it just us, or is that adorable fountain pen totally Harry Potter-esque?)
We adore a sweetheart table in any scenario, but an outdoor sweetheart table paired with a chandelier? SWOON! With just a bit of elbow grease, you savvy DIY couples could easily rig a vintage chandelier over your outdoor table(s?) and really WOW your guests with this charming detail.

If an elopement or intimate backyard wedding appeals to you, we have a feeling you’ll dig the idea of a picnic setup just for you and your loved one. Rather than simply tossing a blanket on the ground, consider adding in a vintage trunk, some throw pillows and, of course, flowers! Beautiful floral arrangements—like these by Apple Creek Flowers—truly elevate a simple picnic to make it wedding-appropriate. (P.S. Can you spot the cute little fox detail? SO CUTE.)
Isn’t anything “for two” just the cutest? We think so—especially when it’s sorbet served in vintage glassware! We love that this elopement inspiration shoot incorporates plenty of “for two” moments. If you’re planning an elopement, consider your “for two” moments and imagine the adorable photo opportunities! Also, check out the charming swing for two in this country wedding shoot at Over the Vines.
