This sweet couple eloped in Maggie Valley during an intimate ceremony with gorgeous mountain views and their day could not have been more perfect! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and their mountain backdrop was exactly what they hoped for.
When I arrived at their mountain rental home it was simply and beautifully decorated with tiny lights, floral garland, and greenery. The dinner table was set with gorgeous accents to match their decor, and Rodney was anxiously awaiting the ceremony. 
This day was the first time I had met both Leslie and Rodney since they traveled from out of state for the elopement. They are the kindest couple and have been together for years, finally tying the knot here in our beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. Currently Rodney lives in Seattle, and Leslie in Tampa. This day was not only their wedding day, but also their promise to one another to move back to the same city. I could feel the excitement and commitment in the air throughout our time together. 
When the ceremony began, Leslie and her children walked up the steps and onto the patio overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains. Rodney anxiously watched Leslie step toward him with pure joy on his face. They instantly joined hands while donning big smiles. They were so excited to say “I do!” During the ceremony they read their hand written vows while the other listened intently. There were smiles and welled eyes, a perfect combination of love, trust, and commitment. 
After the ceremony there were many hugs, handshakes, and laughter among the small crowd of family. They could not be more excited for Leslie and Rodney to begin their life together. With the excitement in the air, I found myself smiling big too! It was such an honor to be a part of this special time.
We took some time to walk around the property and capture photos of Leslie and Rodney on their own after this. For some photographs we look advantage of the mountain view, and for others we used the beautifully wooded side yard and meandering driveway. This rental property was gorgeous, and provided many beautiful backdrops for Leslie and Rodney’s portraits. 
Congratulations Leslie + Rodney! Thank you for asking me to capture your big day!
