Kayla and Andrew decided to jump on a plane and fly across the Pacific Ocean for their New Zealand elopement. Living and working in Nashville, the pair love hiking and the outdoors. So, a low-key elopement in New Zealand with some beautiful outdoor landscapes was just the ticket for their sweet family.
With weather coming in on their original wedding day, we changed plans and opted for a sunrise wedding a few days earlier. After a lovely First Look at their accommodation, we jumped in a helicopter to one of our favourites, Lake Erskine. The early morning light and calm weather combined for a stunning morning on the mountain. The colours of the water were at their best, and we were lucky enough to catch some of the alpine daisies in bloom, too!
Kayla had a beautiful dress custom-designed by Anomalie in California. Meanwhile, Kayla’s son Finley was dressed in an awesome bright red suit. Andrew was very dapper in a blue suit jacket and tan trousers. While we were roaming around capturing beautiful portraits of the newly official husband and wife, Finley was exploring around the mountain with our pilot! After our mountain adventure, we had a few lovely moments down at the lakeside.
Congratulations again, Kayla and Andrew! We loved helping create your dream elopement. We are so thankful that you were happy to work with our crazy ideas, to get you married the day after you landed in Queenstown!!! 😍❤️ xx
