Donna and Josh's Lakeside Cottage Elopement

Have you ever dreamed of an intimate wedding in a whimsical and lush location that’s both private and romantic? Not all couples want to say their private and meaningful vows in front of dozens of guests. Others prefer to get away to some where beautiful, for a ceremony that is perfect for just the two of you. If you’re one of these couples, then these photos from Dawn E Roscoe Photography should be your inspiration.

The photography duo and a real, engaged couple (Donna and Josh) headed to an Airbnb cottage in a vast estate of enchanting woods for an elopement photoshoot. The set up was inspired by rustic chic weddings, with linens, dinnerware and accessories being vintage pieces from the 60s and 70s. The green and white floral palette complimented the exuberant nature that surrounded them, while the bride’s look was a perfect blend of casual elegance.

The couple had their real wedding just a few months after this shoot, and their dog, Jaxson, of course played a big role in the wedding proceedings. We think Donna and Josh make a picture perfect couple!
