This post is literally a year in the making - (Happy Anniversary you two!) Gabrielle and Matt eloped in a *super secret* private ceremony in the mountains of Asheville. They flew their parents all the way from California and Washington to witness and celebrate in their becoming man and wife. I loved how uniquely intimate and calm the whole day was. Didn't Philosophy flowers do a gorgeous job on the crown and bouquet? I still remember opening up the email a few months later when Gabby asked if I was still available for their California date - within minutes the plane tickets were booked! I wasn't allowed to share any of these gorgeous images until after their California wedding "renewal" (with 100 of their closest family/friends) in attendance! The guests had quite a surprise when the pastor announced their prior elopement to the crowed at the start of the wedding ceremony. I am SO excited to also share their wedding in California from last month, but first - a few favorites from the elopement a year ago!
