NC Mountain Elopement

Two brides at their NC Mountain elopement

Liesl & Caitlin’s NC Mountain Elopement

Give me all the mountain elopement fun please! This weekend we met Liesl & Caitlin in Banner Elk for some amazing wedding portraits. They actually had their official magistrate wedding earlier in the fall, but Saturday was the day for official wedding portraits. And mother nature did not let us down. The skies couldn’t have been more perfect and even though it was a little chilly (and very windy up on top of the mountain), both ladies had gorgeous dresses with sleeves! Liesl even had pockets!

I’m so looking forward to doing more adventure elopements like this in the future, and I’m hopeful that my coming partnership with ElopeNC will bring more awesome couples like this our way.

Finally, shout out to my assistant/second shooter Emily for helping out with this shoot. Some of her images are included with mine below!

Okay, can we talk about how perfect both of their dresses are? I want both of them! The way their skirts blew in the wind **chef’s kiss**
