describe your day in 3 words: Rainy Mountain Elopement

your song: You Make It Look So Easy - Eric Church

advice for future brides: If you really want an outdoor ceremony, make it happen. Rain or shine. Nobody is going to care like you think they will. They will climb a mountain in rain boots and ponchos and will carry an umbrella. The experience is something they will remember for a lifetime. So let go a bit, care less about things that are beyond your control and make it happen. Love your day!

Makeup and hair- Erica McFee at Turner & Co. Asheville, NC @makeupandhairbyerica

Florals- The Bouqs and Whole Foods. I ordered 3 separate bouquets from The Bouqs and had a mini panic attack that we didn't have enough to assemble the bouquet of my dreams so we got more fresh blooms from Whole Foods in Asheville.

Cake & macarons- 50/fifty the art of dessert Asheville, NC @50fiftytheartofdessert

Cabin rental where we got ready together was rented through Graybeard Rentals and they were fabulous. Cabin in the Clouds was exactly what we wanted for our stay.

Officiant- David Sexton. We asked Jeremy's dad about 6 months out to become official and perform the ceremony. We needed it to be intimate for us and I think he was completely humbled by it. He did an amazing job!

Rings- Impress Jewelers Granger, IN

Reception- Lexington Ave. Brewery Asheville, NC we rented a private room with private bar and they took care of everything for us. Taco bar & craft beers. Just our style!

Jeremy wore a Kenneth Cole suit from Men's Warehouse and he raved about how comfortable he was.

My dress was PERFECT and Jeremy about fell over when he was helping me in it, thank you so much!!
