Nathalie and Mark chose to elope in downtown Asheville for their destination wedding. They found a gorgeous rental close to town with the most spectacular views and invited a few of their favorite people to come celebrate with them. All the perfect details, the most genuinely sweet and stunningly beautiful people, the best locations, the most lovely day, and a couple so obviously overjoyed to be getting married, I was in photographer heaven! I am so lucky that they chose me to photograph all this love and gorgeousness!!
From the rental to the courthouse, the modern architecture of the rental to art deco magic in the historic buildings downtown, Asheville is an awesome backdrop for wedding photos! Inside the courthouse is gorgeous and any opportunity to photograph there is such an honor – especially with a couple as beautiful as these two are! I always swoon over the sweet moments after a couple is just married! This is exponentially true when they marry at the courthouse and are so excited to make it official that they walk directly to the Register of Deeds office as these lovebirds chose to do. We took some time for romantic portraits of the newlyweds and photos as we walked through downtown before rejoining their party to celebrate with a toast at Sovereign Remedies just blocks away. This restaurant’s speak-easy inspired vibe fit this couple’s timeless style perfectly.
I am still reeling in how spectacular this destination elopement truly was! It is such an honor to work with my couples to make *their* wedding vision come to life, helping to plan as needed, and capturing it all so they can relive it for years to come. It is my goal that they go back to the feeling of that moment every time they look at the photos . I love getting to photograph such special moments and hope you will get in touch if you or someone you love needs big (or small) moments captured!
