On the Banks | Romantic Lakeside & Canoe Elopement Styled Shoot

Whether you love the idea of a lakeside wedding or are looking for a unique setting for an elopement, take a look at this lakeside and canoe elopement styled shoot to inspire you!

This was my first time installing flowers on a canoe, but it was such an out-of-the-box idea and I loved it! It’s definitely not something you see every day, although it has become more popular since our features in Utah Valley Bride and Anthropologie.

The wind also added a lovely romantic feel to give the styled elopement session the perfect amount of drama. Between the flowy, tulle dress and the ribbon on my bouquet, it added a beautiful balance of movement and dimension in each photograph.

I also have to add that I love couples who understand that just because they are eloping, it doesn’t mean that they can’t splurge on gorgeous flowers and photographs for romantic results! If you’re considering an elopement in Ohio, try bringing in some beautiful pops of color for a bouquet or ceremony backdrop! For this photoshoot, we used a blend of peonies, dahlias, and roses to brighten up the scene against the green and blue backgrounds.

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"

-Bo, Spring 2019 Wedding
