After dating for seventeen years, Maribel and Ben finally tied the knot in this dreamy mountain North Carolina elopement. Despite looking as beautifully styled and thoughtfully curated as a styled shoot, the bride planned every detail of this intimate ceremony with the help of a few choice vendors. Flowers by Larry provided a statement-making autumn palette with earthy vibes featuring marsala, burgundy, plum, taupe, soft pink, jade and dark foliage green. The copper arbor served as inspiration for the entire elopement, with antlers and feathers added to the stylish tablescape and ceremony décor to create a more casual and bohemian feeling. The rustic cabin and secluded location provided the perfect background for a lush fall color palette: lush canopies of changing leaves, the foggy Blue Ridge Mountains, and a truly magical waterfall. Sugar Cloud Bakery created the two stunning wedding cakes, intricately decorated like a deliciously oversized rose. Seemingly lost in this world of two, Folk and Wayfarer captured this couple looking overjoyed to elope in this beautiful and intimate ceremony after being together for so long.
Maribel and Ben
Private Residence, Asheville, North Carolina
We wanted a a lot of greenery and an open setting where we felt free and not confined. Our wedding was an elopement but we also wanted a lot of the trappings of a larger planned wedding.
Everything revolved around the color of the arbor, copper has more an industrial feel to it so we added macrame,dream catchers,antlers,feathers to have a more boho casual feeling.
We knew we wanted a beautiful waterfall in our photos so that determined a lot the locations. Also lush,green canopies of trees and mountainous backdrops at dusk.
The whole day was very busy and there wasn’t much time to stop and look around. Once we looked into each others eyes and said “I do” It seemed like we were the only two in the world. Standing in front of the waterfalls it felt something magical from another lifetime.
