The absolute peak of #weddinggoals. That’s what Burg Eltz and this beautiful German castle elopement shoot are. WEDDING GOALS.
I originally floated the idea of a German castle elopement styled shoot at Burg Eltz to Mariah of Mariah Arianna Photo shortly after meeting her online. Wedding photographers in Germany are a little harder to find than in the states, so I was pumped to find a talented peer to connect and collaborate with! Mariah immediately confirmed my impression of her as a like-minded creative when she exclaimed that she’d been contemplating the exact same thing! So we coordinated and planned (then bought a bunch of pretty things). Next I met Anthia and Alec, the gorgeous humans we needed to bring it all to life. These two are planning a large wedding celebration with their families in 2022, and they were kind enough to be a part of this adventure!
This fabulous cake is from Sugar Petals Ildiko. One of the best parts of this adventure was seeing the incredible sugar work of Ildiko in person. I’ve been following Ildiko on Instagram for about a year and her talent is astounding. These delicate sugar flowers look INSANELY real. I honestly don’t know how she does it, but I’m going to make a video of her and find out! You can buy one of her creations for your very own in her Etsy shop!
