Carolina Outdoor Elopement Photographer | Tara and Dawson

Tara and Dawson are such a wonderful couple! It doesn’t take long to realized that these two are madly in love. I am so honored that they chose me to document their elopement for them. I first met Tara and Dawson when they decided to plan their elopement with us at Elope Outdoors. Immediately, I was drawn to their care-free and fun attitudes, and I knew their wedding was going to reflect their adventurous spirits. They are such kind people, and I am so happy that they found each other!

Rainy Mountaintop Elopement

Elopements are so intimate and special, allowing for the bride and groom to celebrate one another without the stress of a big wedding. Tara and Dawson decided to invite some close friends and family to witness the ceremony. I loved seeing their support system! Their loved ones were up for the challenge of hiking to the breathtaking mountain top to be part of their special day.

The elopement took place at Bald Rock Heritage Preserve above the foothills of the Appalachian mountains in South Carolina. Our day started with a “first look” under the canopy of the forest in the rain. The rain added such a beautiful tone to the elopement as the two read their vows to each other. Such a romantic experience for them! All of us were teary eyed as they read their beautifully written words to each other.

The rain subsided as the ceremony began, and a cool mist set in. It was gorgeous being right in the middle of the clouds and fog, so romantic and whimsical. We were cold and wet but it did not hinder the mood of the day in the slightest. These might just be some of my favorite photos captured in my time as a photographer! The sun started popping out at the end, and we were able to see a bit of the view. We love outdoor elopements and the excitement that comes when the rain doesn’t stop adventurous lovers! Congratulations to Tara and Dawson! I wish them many more happy memories in the future!

Asheville Outdoor Elopement Photographer | Wes and Cierra

Wes and Cierra’s Asheville Elopement was so much fun for me.  This adorable couple decided to elope last minute, so, we had everything planned in less than two weeks with my Elopement package!  Fast-paced fun.  I love it!  They live in the Hendersonville area which is near Jump Off Rock.  This is such an incredibly beautiful outdoor space, especially for Wedding Images.  I could not wait to suggest this gem of a spot to them.  It’s convenient and there is easy access to the location.  It also has the outdoor beauty and spanning mountain view without the hike.

The Merriest of Christmas Gifts

The duo was engaged during the Christmas season.  Wes had an adorable idea to give Cierra the ring as one of her gifts Christmas morning, but she could not wait to celebrate and open gifts.  So, he finally gave in and they opened gifts early.  On December 16th he asked her to cover her eyes while he got her gift ready.  When he said open,  he was there with the ring.  Shocked and excited, Cierra cried tears of joy.  Needless to say, she said yes.

Much like the story of the excitement to open her gifts, Cierra could not wait to marry Wes.  They have been together for 4 years and felt no need to have a long engagement.  They were so ready to be husband and wife and so much fun!  I was thrilled to be their elopement photographer.  Cierra looked gorgeous in her flower crown and romantic gown by Maggie Sottero.  I love the range of images I was able to get of these two, that Jump Off Rock offers.  There are so many different vantage points and angles.  And no matter which direction you capture from there is a gorgeous natural backdrop.

Asheville Fall Craggy Mountain Elopement | Alycia and Colt

Getting married is such a special time in your life. It’s a time that you want to relive over and over and will simply cherish forever. For Alycia and Colt, they wanted their Asheville Fall Craggy Mountain Elopement to be an intimate experience. It was important to them to have it documented properly so they could go back and reminisce about their special day. I was so thrilled to work with these two, as they are such genuinely sweet and beautiful people!

Alycia and Colt’s Craggy Mountain Ceremony

Alycia and Colt decided on getting married at Craggy Mountain off Blue Ridge Parkway, and let me tell you, it was breathtaking. There couldn’t have been a better place for them to exchange vows, kisses, and love. Our day started with me picking up Alycia and driving her to Craggy. Meanwhile Colt and our officiant, Nick, were waiting for us on the mountain top. Although Alycia and Colt were married in a non-conventional way, it was important for the bride to wait for her husband to see her until she walked down the aisle. I brought a speaker and played “I Get to Love You” by Ruelle as she walked to him and her future. I loved that Alycia decided on this, as it truly made for a beautiful moment. It was so sweet to see Colt grin ear to ear as his beautiful bride walked towards him.
After the ceremony, Alycia and Colt had their first dance song to “All of the Above” by T. Carter. It was the perfect song for their intimate day. We stayed around for the sunset, and we were able to capture their sweet kisses set against the setting sun. Altogether, Alycia and Colt had a spectacular elopement. I am certain that their day on the mountain top is just the start of something very, very special. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs.!

Blue Ridge Mountain Elopement Photographer | Niki and Jordan

I will never stop saying how much I love the intimacy of elopements. And how over the moon happy I am to have created Elope Outdoors of Asheville.  While there is something to be said for the lavish celebrations among large groups of family and friends…the ability to capture the small details and absolute range of emotion in a small group of soon-to-be husband and wife and best friends.  These are truly my most favorite of all special events to document, just because of the sheer joy in joining these two in marriage.

Precious Tears

Niki and Jordan chose to do a first look before hiking up to the Pinnacle.  Jordan was taken aback by Niki’s beauty and the expression on his face seeing her for the first time as his bride was priceless!  He loved admiring her bridal hiking boots as well!  She had presented him with a special set of cufflinks as a wedding gift.  As they made their way arm in arm up the peak, they were able to sneak in a kiss or two along the stone stair trail.  

The ceremony was led by our officiant, Nick. It took place on the overlook which we had all to ourselves, that day.  Niki and Jordan had prepared beautiful vows, and they brought a tear to everyone’s eye.  It was so sweet the way Niki reached over to dry Jordan’s cheek. I just love these two!  

An Intimate and Personal Day

Once they were officially husband and wife, they celebrated with some personalized macaroons which were so beautiful – and yummy!  And went so deliciously with the champagne!  

We got some epic shots of the couple, and of Niki by herself on the rocks with the grand Blue Ridge Mountain views behind her.  Craggy Pinnacle is one of my favorite locations in Asheville for elopements as it’s so picturesque any time of year!  The wind was so playful in blowing Niki’s veil; it really brought out the fun-loving spirit of this couple and the happiness of the occasion.

Niki and Jordan are such a sweet couple and the true love they have for each other really shined through during their ceremony and celebration.  I had such an absolute pleasure meeting them and being part of their wedding day!

Asheville Outdoor Elopement Photographer | Kacy and Dayne’s Snow-Filled Celebration

Kacy and Dayne are such kind-hearted, sweet people. When they asked me to be their Asheville Elopement photographer, I was immediately thrilled! What a beautiful time of the year to have such a special day. These two met in the 4th grade, and have been side-by-side ever since. They love going to concerts together, and in fact, Dayne proposed under the Bonaroo arch at the Bonaroo music festival. Kacy and Dayne are one of a kind, and such an amazing duo. I am so honored to have been able to capture their elopement.

Their Hearts Belonged in Asheville

I spoke with Kacy about eloping, and she explained that they originally planned to have a big wedding on April 14th, 2018. After getting started on the wedding planning, Kacy and Dayne realized that the stress of planning a wedding was just not worth it. So, as Kacy explained, “we decided to elope and randomly chose Asheville. We later found out that Asheville is where Dayne’s grandparents fell in love. They have since passed, but I think they led us to Asheville.” Her response made me gain a new perspective on Kacy and Dayne. Their love for each other was enough. They didn’t need a big wedding, all they needed was each other and a few of their loved ones. Not to mention, how special Asheville ended up being for these two.
We originally planned to have the ceremony with mountain views, but the Blue Ridge parkway was closed due to the weather. It didn’t stop the fun though, as we had a gorgeous snowy winter wonderland elopement at the Botanical Gardens. Kacy has such a classic, gorgeous look that was totally complimented by the small snowflakes that landed in her hair, falling in front of her face. Dayne was handsome himself, looking sleek and clean in the snow. The weather made for such a beautiful day!
I was able to provide the flowers, cake and champagne for the couple. The beautiful bouquet and flowers were provided by Shady Grove, and were such compliment to this elopement! Congratulations to Kacy and Dayne! These two deserve the world!
