A Rock ‘n’ Roll Courthouse Elopement With Ring Tattoos & Velvet Wedding Gown

July 5, 2019

We talk a lot of big love when it comes to our girl Shelby of Shelby Laine Photography. She’s the official Dress Gallery photographer for all our styled shoots, which means that most of the unique and cool content that graces our feeds are the results of her cool ideas and collaborations. We know that Shelby is always down to capture our vision – regardless of what it might be for that particular day. She’s amazingly adaptable – and this styled shoot is no different!

When we texted Shelby asking if she’d like to shoot a styled elopement complete with ring tattoos, she didn’t hesitate at saying “Hell yes!” She knows exactly the moody, rock ‘n’ roll attitude we wanted to convey. Local tattoo artist Chris Ramirez of Elektrik Chair Tattoo & Piercing gave the couple (one of our own bridal consultants, Courtney!) and her fiance some seriously cool ring tattoos. Our personal favorite part? The Maggie Sottero gown made of ivory velvet Courtney rocked with white mule heels. This dress is definitely for the badass bride! Check out some of our favorite photos below:

Courtney styled the Maggie Sottero “Bradford” with statement pieces from Instagram artist Barbara C. Pellegrino. They both wore matching Ray Bans!
