The Wild Blossoms Elopement Experience

Our Elopement Collection includes one of Elycia’s signature lush garden-style bridal bouquets for your intimate adventure paired with a 16×20 modern piece of pressed flower art, beginning at $1800.

Elopement bouquets are designed from May through November and we produce pressed flower art projects from November through May.

We reserve our elopement services for couples who are also excited to have Elycia transform their bridal bouquet into pressed flower works of art and who can pick flowers up in North Fort Collins. This is the perfect option for couples who drive an SUV or Van and love to travel.

Many couples request to add stunning floral arrangements. For small weddings, we offer various centerpiece options and petite ceremony designs.

Creating captivating color palettes from farm to frame is a Wild Blossoms specialty and one unique service that sets us apart.

Pressing Process + Design Consultation

  • After the elopement day, bouquets are deconstructed and undergo the pressing process for about four months.
  • Before the pressed flower art is mounted, we’ll email a photo of the layout and a link to schedule a design consultation with Elycia.
  • When the design is finished, we’ll send a sneak peek photo and invoice for the remaining balance.
  • The design and framing process takes anywhere from 1-2 months.
  • After the art is framed and ready, we’ll ship it directly to your home in our sustainable packaging with tracking and UPS insurance.

Delivery & Logistics

During the final elopement consultation, we’ll schedule a time to pick up flowers at Wild Blossoms Studio in North Fort Collins. 

We’ll include a vase for your bouquet and an eco-fresh stem wrap to keep the bouquet hydrated throughout the wedding day.

Additional items will be packed into custom boxes and ready upon arrival. Centerpiece containers will need to be returned or purchased in advance. 

We will arrange a time for you to drop your bouquet back off at the studio or provide a shipping kit for you to overnight your bouquet back to us after your elopement adventure. It’s best to begin the preservation process within 24-48 hours of your elopement day.

Love Note

Elycia and her team were incredible. My husband and I had a small elopement and the bouquet and boutonniere came out absolutely perfect! I didn’t have a set color idea but was able to tell her the type of flowers we liked. They came out even better than I could have dreamed. I highly recommend persevering with them as well. It’s such a wonderful memory to have and her instructions on how to send them back to her were very clear and easy to follow. If you want to have beautiful flowers for any occasion and don’t have to worry – Wild Blossoms is the way to go!
