This design was created during a Green Wedding Guild shoot. Planners who are a part of the Guild put together their own team to create a vision to execute. Bill Scott Pavilion was honored to be chosen as the host venue for what turned out to be such an eclectic shoot!
When we think about summer in the south, our minds often drift to picking fresh fruit, celebrating the 4th of July, and finding a shady spot to read a good book and enjoy a perfect day. With these thoughts in mind, ElopeNC members collaborated to create a vintage patriotic summer elopement styled shoot at a dreamy Americana venue.
Maria’s limoncello theme was beautiful AND tasty! Maria setup a beautiful mock reception tablescape. We were so happy to see how each planner utilized the space and made it their own; the options are endless!
After over a year of talking about COVID elopements, it almost feels cliché to do so: The couple postpone their big celebration but still commemorate their original wedding date. Their community can’t be there to witness and enjoy the moment, so they make it intimate, focus on themselves, their love and commitment. Whatever else it is, an elopement is unquestionably about the marriage—the coming together of hearts, speaking truths to one another, holding to one another despite the bleak, quasi-dystopian pandemicscape.
Ethan & Chelsea Smith Eloped Saturday, June 26, 2021
The alarm went off at 4:30 am, camera bags were triple-checked, and hiking shoes were laced up. The birds were still sleeping, but my assistant and I made our way to Hanging Rock State Park to meet with the sweetest couple to elope mountainside at sunrise.
