Brittany & Ben’s Elopement at the Nantahala Wedding Venue NC

Wedding at Nantahala wedding venue

We made our way up to Wayah Bald in the Nantahala national Forest and some beautiful cascades that were about 8 miles from the venue. Since they hadn’t had formal engagement session photos, they did a quick mountainside wardrobe change and we made those happen as well. The photos turned out beautiful, despite there being a little bit of rain. But of course, that’s all part of the fun of shooting in the mountains.

It was a pleasure shooting with Brittany and then recently at the Nantahala wedding venue. They came all the way from Ohio to my mountains here in southern Appalachia. We worked together to find the perfect shooting locations around the venue and shot there after the ceremony.

When and where did you go on your first date?

How did Y'all meet?

Bob Evans

We met on Tinder

Tell me about your first date together?

How did you fall in love?

Technically, or first date was at Bob Evans. Since we met in Tinder we wanted a chance to meet each other and have conversation before committing to a more traditional first date.

After a few months of consistently hanging out, my lease was coming to an end at my apartment. She had a little extra space and so we took a big leap and I moved in with her. From there it was love it or leave it. Luckily, it worked out for us in the end.

What are you most excited about for your wedding?

When and where did he/she propose?

She comes from a big Disney family so, naturally, I had to propose in front of the castle at Walt Disney World.

The location, and having a mini vacation bringing our families close together.
