The pandemic may have paved the way for elopements, but there is no denying that there is something really intimate, romantic, and adventurous about exchanging vows when it’s just the two of you. Gabby and Lauren’s stunning Anthony Chapel elopement is proof that there’s nothing more special than just being with each other, surrounded by beauty in every direction.
With its striking architecture, soaring vaulted wood and glass ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal the sky above, the surrounding forest, and views of Lake Hamilton, the Anthony Chapel at Garvan Woodland Gardens was the perfect setting for their special day.
Two glowing brides, edgy denim jackets, gorgeous DIY bouquets, a breathtaking venue, and the sweetest in-between moments—their big day truly reflected the beauty of the way they live and love. If you’ve ever thought about eloping, these dreamy images captured by Junebug member Kylie Farmer will surely inspire you.
