Brian & Kami // Elopement

Oh man, elopements are my favorite. They are so intimate & intentional & I always end up crying my eyes out during the vow exchange. It certainly was no exception with Kami & Brian. Last month, these two & myself ventured to a state park near the coast- it was the perfect blend of Florida greens & white sand. I was honored to witness their union & loved getting to spend so much time with them on this incredible day. 

Brian & Kami- congrats on the start of your new life together! May it be blessed immensely!

Eric & Mackenzie // Elopement

This fall I've gotten extremely lucky with some amazing small wedding/elopement clients. Just a few weeks ago I shared one of my all time favorites, Matt & Ash's Lookout Mountain elopement, and today, I've got another incredible one for you! 

Eric & Mackenzie wed in Fontana Dam, North Carolina in the most spectacular mountain home owned by Mackenzie's parents. It's totally different than your typical mountain lodge, but it's completely amazing & 100% my dream. Everything about the weekend was so cool. The 15 or so guests took over a neighboring motel & the beautiful home was the hub for all the fun festivities. Every detail was of impeccable style, not to mention the food was legitimately out of this world. All meals for the weekend were catered by Orlando based company, D'Lish Catering Co., and it was all next level- each meal even better than the last! 

It was a sweet, intimate weekend of celebration & gathering of friends. Eric & Mackenzie's families were so kind & warmly welcomed me into every activity. After 3 days, several shared meals, & wedding festivities, I left on Sunday feeling like part of the family. It really is so special & unique to be a part of a celebration where you have the opportunity to spend so much time with a couple & know all their wedding guests by name. Have I mentioned just how much I love small weddings/elopements?! 

Eric, Mackenzie, & their daughter make for a seriously attractive crew & they were so kind, relaxed, & go with the flow. Even when the schedule ran late & we found ourselves shooting their portraits after the sun set, they fully embraced it which made for some super cool moody images! Plus their crazy good style was just an extra bonus.  All in all, everything was delightful!  Thanks so much for having me as part of your weekend, you two! :)

Matt & Ashleigh // Elopement

It's hard to even know what to say about this elopement/wedding because it was such an all around lovely experience. All I know for sure is that this will go down on my most favorite weddings lists.

Matt & Ash wanted to do things a bit differently. A big, traditional wedding wasn't for them so they decided to take their nuptials to the mountains. We drove up the windy roads of Lookout Mountain together, they held hands as we walked to the edge of Sunset Rock. After snapping a few pictures, Matt looks at Ashleigh and says "Babe, you ready to do this?". They settle onto the furthest point of the rock. Matt's dad is the officiant. Ashleigh is beaming. Fifteen of their closest friends & family gather around. Then & there they exchange vows & see the last 10 years of their journey together come to fruition. 

It was that simple & that significant all at the same time. 

It was truly a beautiful day to be a part of. Nothing could have made it more perfect. The weather, the location, the people, the love, the story, the hearts. All of it was glorious & I am so so so happy I was there. 

Matt & Ash, I love you guys lots. Can't wait to know you for many more years to come! <3
