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.
Our goal for this Starry Night styled shoot was to create a dreamy nighttime micro-wedding set outside under the stars. We chose a dark navy blue, silver, and gold for our colors to mirror a twinkling night sky. Model bride Gabby glistened in a sparkling wedding gown and an elegant up-do while groom Pyrion looked handsome in a fitted blue suit.
Look almost anywhere in the wedding industry and you’ll see some startling similarities across the board: the people represented are straight, white, and young. In more recent years, especially in the shake-up that was 2020, the heteronormativity and overall beige palette have begun improving, with even the bigger, more traditional outlets showing change – but there’s still a trend towards showing younger couples, a taste of ageism in the wedding industry.
This bohemian chic-inspired styled shoot was designed with pastel pinks & purples, a gorgeous palm branch arch, and matching table centerpieces. The beautiful balloon art arrangement and understated cake added great details, and a violinist duo serenaded our model couple!
Theresa & Bill are such an incredibly sweet couple. From the moment I met Theresa, our talks were filled with beautiful stories of their relationship and how chock full of meaning their day would be.
