Vibrant colors, non-traditional attire, and an eclectic reception table were seamlessly combined for this Whimsical Tea Party Elopement designed by Eva of Emily Katherine Events, along with Brennan of Cirque91 Photography.
Ronnie and Royanna’s Christmas elopement was at Church of the Covenant in Spring Lake. This small church has been completely rebuilt in the last few years because of flooding that occurred during Hurricane Florence. A member of the congregation wanted to keep the memories continue the church in that same building, so donations were made to cover the costs of the revamp. And what fun, now that Ronnie and Royanna could add to that long list of memories.
There’s something exciting about exploring a city, whether it’s a first visit or a stroll down memory lane. Every corner contains something new to discover, the bustle in the streets infuses passersby with a communal energy, and the shared experience with your forever person creates a memory that won’t soon be forgotten. If you immediately flashed back to a wonderful trip you took or can’t wait to plan your next city excursion, this Spring City-Walk Elopement in Downtown Asheville is for you.
For our shoot, Vibrant Modern Spring at The Maxwell, Jillian and I wanted to create something that would represent us while working with vendors who had our same values. We also wanted to try and encourage brides to go bold with their colors while still staying traditional. We knew we wanted a real couple and were lucky enough to find Nick & Chrissy who currently reside in Charlotte, North Carolina.
When Amy & Chris chose to be married on the rooftop of The Durham Hotel, they couldn’t have hoped for such a perfectly sunny and breezy day with beautiful views of the skyline. With 50 guests in attendance, their intimate wedding was deeply personalized to reflect their relationship and included family and the kind of friends that are more like sisters and brothers.
For some couples, concerts and live music play a significant role in their love story, whether they enjoy attending shows or are musicians themselves. When planning a wedding based around your love story, it’s like planning your best date ever, and for a couple whose story is more like a soundtrack, music can be the driving force behind your experience. At ElopeNC, we know there are couples who would love a private rock show with their closest friends, who want to celebrate their fun and playful side, who love color and neon and aren’t afraid to be their authentic, rock and roll selves. With these ideas in mind, we planned a Downtown Rocker Barcade Elopement styled shoot for our January 2022 ElopeNC event.
Malick and Evelyne are both from South Africa and speak fluent French. The couple wanted to wait to throw their wedding party until after Evelyn delivered their baby later in the year, but they didn’t want to delay making their marriage official. They decided to opt for a small elopement at the Wake County Justice Center in Downtown Raleigh, followed by photos that doubled as their wedding portraits and a mini-maternity session!
When Sarah and Jake met for their first date, Sarah made sure to arrive early and to bring the one item she always brought on a first date – a book, The Poisoner’s Handbook. She nonchalantly placed it on the table without making mention of it, as she always did, to see how her date would react. It was her test, her way of knowing whether this person would take her as she is – in her full quirky, offbeat glory or whether it’d make them uncomfortable.
Young, in love, and overjoyed are all great ways to describe Josiah and Lauren. They met young and in many ways grew up together (and are still growing up together). Josiah is in the military, and recently he and Lauren decided to have a small elopement a Monroe Camp and Retreat in New Hill! It was such a great place for them to have their intimate wedding with their close family and friends!
