Carl and Ellie are one of the most memorable Disney couples out there. So why not style your own elopement after Disney-Pixar’s Up?
We absolutely love animated Disney movies. Some of our favorite Disney and Pixar characters have the greatest, most romantic love stories. And a love story like Carl and Ellie’s in Up that is filled with romance, adventure, and laughter is definitely inspiring.
Suzanne Grage of local Orlando photographers Lillie Shawn Imagery had a stunning stylized elopement photoshoot that was inspired by one of the greatest love stories in Disney history: Carl and Ellie. With colorful balloons, a hot air balloon basket, a vintage car, a historic setting, and a couple that look the part, Grage and her team were able to bring the magical story of Up to life.
“Up, up, and away! We had so much fun re-creating the Up movie’s wedding day as we could only imagine if they had eloped,” photographer Suzanne Grage wrote in an email to PopSugar. “The elopement took us back to the 1940s, beginning with the beautiful Venue 1902, a school-turned-wedding-venue as the main background. So many fun vintage colors throughout, from the bridal bouquet to the giant balloons to the vintage green-and-black 1941 Chevy to a sweet tower of macarons, and even to the romantic picnic. I think the highlight of the day was the authentic vintage hot air balloon basket that played to the house in the movie.”
Of course, the photoshoot would not have been complete without all of the giant balloons reminiscent of those that Carl attached to his house in order to fulfill his and Ellie’s dream of traveling to Paradise Falls. And as you can tell from the photos below, there is no shortage of balloons! They even included other adorable references to the film, like Carl and Ellie’s picnics, so the couple truly looked in love.
