Eloping on the Bluff

Eloping on the Bluff

How romantic for this couple to elope for their wedding day. Against the stunning backdrop of the Prince Edward Islands, the bride and groom's outfits will beautifully complement the scenery. To really get a sense of the color palette, I included a collection of images from nature- the rust and pink colors of the cliffs and bluffs, the various blues of the ocean and sky, and the myriad greens of growth. Taking a cue from this color story, I opted for a navy linen suit by Paul Smith. I paired it with some awesome leather Alexander McQueen boots that are hand-carved. I felt that for this wedding, this beautiful boot was more fitting than a classic dress shoe. And, they are totally an investment- boots are a great option for men when you want to look polished so don't want to wear your sneaks but don't want to wear boring dress shoes, either. In the fall, pair these boots with some dark jeans or olive colored utility pants and a flannel shirt. Or, go a bit edgier and pair it with darker colors to really highlight the cognac color of the boot. These boots will give any outfit some serious character. A simple feather boutonniere (inspired by Pomp & Plumage), silver cufflinks, and a toffee colored crocodile-band watch with navy face round out the look. I also selected a beautifully textured dusty pink silk tie to subtly hint at the colors along the bluffs at sunset.

I hope you got some good ideas! -Makiko
