After deciding to forgo a traditional proposal, Hannah and Ryan chose to elope in the Blue Ridge Mountains, wanting to maintain focus on their love and togetherness above all else. Inviting along only their two wedding professionals, Betty Clicker Photography and officiant Dave Norris, the couple exchanged handwritten vows and explored the vast nature around them. To end the evening, Hannah and Ryan shared a picnic in the forest with a two-person wedding cake and fresh strawberries.
Hannah and Ryan
Blue Ridge Mountains, Virginia
We eloped so that we could have a simple ceremony and stress-free day that celebrated us, so that’s what inspired most of our choices. We were eloping in the mountains, which required a bit of a walk through the woods, so practicality was also a factor when picking out our outfits!
The moments right after we read our vows! It was such a surreal, happy feeling to know that we had done it, we were married!
The Couple Recommends:
The only professionals we hired were our photographer, Kate Thompson of Betty Clicker, and our officiant, Dave Norris. Both were incredibly flexible with our somewhat crazy elopement plan – we couldn’t have asked for better people to share our day with. We’d recommend them both based on both their personalities and their services!
The Wedding Team:
Photography – Betty Clicker Photography
Officiant – Dave Norris

How nice photography . I’m inspiration to see these .
I found your blog post while searching the internet for ways to do exactly what you and your husband did! My fiancé and I are trying to find out how to go about having a mountain wedding for just us two. I was wondering if there were any permits or anything required to get married in the Blue Ridge? Or can we just plan it between us and the photographer and ordained and just do it? Is there any way you can help me on the way to go about planning something like this? I would appreciate your advice so much! My email is email@example.com . Thank you!
I would recommend contacting the photographer from this elopement to find out more details.
Best of luck to you!
Where was this wedding? Where on the Blue Ridge Parkway?
