Jen Sulak of Pink Light Images/ Weirdo Weddings teamed up with Julain, Holdy, and Bridal Global Expo to produce this avant-garde, nonbinary and gender-fluid couture elopement shoot. The styled shoot took place at the Belvoir Winery and featured red, white, black, and gold themes with a focus on fashion and architecture. The creative team felt it was important to include the ancient tradition of handfasting to symbolize the love and bond that would forever be shared.
