Alicia + Nick // Destination Elopement at Banner Elk Winery, NC

When it came to getting married, Alicia and Nick were firm believers in keepings things simple (which I love). This summer, I was invited to photograph their destination elopement on top of a mountain at Banner Elk Winery in North Carolina… and it was incredible. I live for the beautiful outdoors, so it was perfection to witness such a stunning view and partake in such a relaxed and intimate special day.

A huge thank you goes to my good friend, Emily Chastain, for accompanying and assisting me on my road trip down to North Carolina for this fun day!
