Elopements are my new favorite. They are so quaint and small. You still feel the joy and excitement just without the hustle and bustle. These special moments are to be shared with just your very closest people. I see why they have become so popular!
This type of Elopement was just what Caitlin and Dustin chose for their wedding day. When I arrived at Brown Oaks Caitlin was cool as a cucumber. I was impressed by not only her lack of stress but also how organized she was. If you know me you know I love organization!
Brown Oaks is a hidden gem for weddings, it is stunning both inside and out. The porch is a stunning backdrop for any wedding. It doesn’t take much to make it magical.
Right before the ceremony, we stopped to do some Bridals in front of the window and ohhh my they were beautiful. At that point, you could see the nerves bubbling up. Excitement and anticipation were all over her beautiful face.
As if the anxiousness wasn’t sweet enough, Dustin’s reaction brought tears to my eyes! He could barely hold back tears. The second he saw her, he had to cover his face. Ladies this is the reaction you want to see in your fianc√©!
All in all this wedding day was a dream; seamless and full of joy. I pray these two have many years of happiness.
And Stay tuned for the video from Elevated Media, it will be gorgeous!
