Let me start by saying… THIS IS NOT A STYLED SHOOT. I repeat– this is NOT a styled shoot. Maribel contacted me a few months ago wanting an elopement in Asheville that was similar to my styled shoot (that was featured on Junebug!) She started planning every single detail down to perfection, as you’ll see here. When I walked into the “reception” area, my heart skipped a damn beat. What a dream. A freaking dream.

Maribel + Ben are not the typical 20 year olds who run off and elope. Maribel and Ben are in their late 40’s and were dating for 17… yes… SEVENTEEN years before they decided to tie the knot! At the end of the day, I heard them both ask each other, “why did we wait so long to do this?” How freaking perfect are they?! And how PERFECT is this elopement.

Maribel + Ben, thank you so much for letting me capture your perfect day! You’ve made me fall in love with elopements 10 times over. <3
