If you’re a fan of flower crowns and whimsical wooded settings we know you are going to love this carefree elopement. Located in Warwick, MD, Prancing Deer Farm is an ideal setting for nature lovers, DIY couples–really anyone who likes romance and the outdoors. You’ll want to scroll through the pictures to see for yourself: a lush, green forest is the wedding ceremony backdrop. In front of that is a field of wild grass–the perfect spot for vows, an intimate ring exchange, and that first kiss. Pastel florals, a vintage lace wedding dress, and super dreamy details make this styled shoot truly something to behold.
Follow the dappled light and champagne pop to this couple’s idea of the perfect day, complete with running through fields and getting cozy on a wicker loveseat. Beneath a canopy of trees, the reception includes a perfectly styled table for two–macrame runners and place settings are paired with vintage glassware that capture the colors of the forest setting. We’re totally in love with all of the eco-friendly and boho wedding inspo captured here:
From Kelly of Prancing Deer Farm,
This styled eco-elopement took place at Prancing Deer Farm, a new outdoor venue with tranquil farm and forest scenery on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
In addition to the location, the shoot incorporated sustainability in every detail possible.
Co-photographer Alex scavenged in the forest for the perfect natural additions to the ring box and cake styling while lead photographer Kelly set up a tablescape that showcased how repurposed, earthy, and vintage can all intersect.
The remnants of a water distribution platform were repurposed into tree trunk accents that were used as props for multiple scenes in the shoot. A forgotten old wicker loveseat made a perfect setting for cozy portraits of the couple.
The vow cards and elopement announcement were printed on seed paper stationary which, when planted, will grow into wildflowers and serve as a reminder of the couple’s flourishing love.

These are just a few of the many ways that the team exercised resourcefulness and incorporated a consciousness of the lifecycle of items in this shoot. We had so much fun working together as a team to creatively employ nature to make art!
