Crystal+Shawn; Craggy Gardens Elopement; Asheville Elopement Photographer

June 15, 2017

Probably my favorite thing to photograph is elopements and intimate weddings. As an Asheville elopement photographer, I have the distinct honor and privilege of bearing witness to so many sweet, private moments and it just blows me away again and again. This Craggy Gardens elopement was no exception.

Crystal and Shawn tied the knot on top of Craggy Pinnacle, just two days before my own wedding. We met up before the ceremony for some portraits and though clouds and strong winds kept us from the very top, we found some gorgeous pockets of sunlight and shadow on the trail. These two have been together for over 7 years and their quiet love and comfortable romance was so inspiring to photograph. They made my job so easy! After portraits their family joined us for their sweet ceremony and they were husband and wife.  It was the most perfect day! Congrats, Crystal and Shawn, and may you two have a lifetime of joy, togetherness, and adventures <3

Thanks, Flora Asheville, for making Crystal the most gorgeous bouquet and flower crown and to the sweet sweet Reverend Susie Greene for officiating!
