From the bride:
“We met in 7th grade in school, and we have been together ever since! We chose to elope because when we got engaged, I was in my first year of teaching, and I didn’t want the added stress of planning a traditional wedding. As we were paying for everything ourselves, we also found eloping much more cost effective. We loved the idea of having our ceremony somewhere in nature, and spending the day stress free, which is exactly what we did!
We chose to get married in Asheville, NC because it’s not far from where we live in South Carolina, and as we had visited the city a few years before on a vacation together, we already knew we loved the location. We fell in love with the scenic mountains, and loved the idea of saying our vows there. “
