CRAGGY GARDEN | NORTH CAROLINA ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER | ANGEL + JARED
Craggy Garden North Carolina Mountain Elopement
First of all wow! I had the an honor to capture these guys elopement in North carolina at Craggy Pinnacle Trail and it was everything I ever dreamed of! When I started photography I fell in love with the mountains and capturing couples in the mountains! Thank you Angel and Jared for trusting me with such an intimate moment in your lives. Here is the couples love story that I LOVE so much! :)
Jared and I both worked at the Sheriff’s Office for 6 months and had never crossed paths until a mutual friend introduced us.
What was supposed to be a “blind” lunch date turned into hours of talking and laughing. From that moment forward we were inseparable.
Our first year together was perfect bliss. We spent our time together exploring, taking trips, keeping each other awake on night shift, moving in together and just loving our life.
Then...we got put through the ringer and we were tested beyond measure. Jared was always my biggest support and he stuck with me when things were beyond hard. I still tell him to this day that he saved me in so many ways. The days I thought he would run for the hills, he planted his feet and told me he loved me.
I truly believe that our love can move mountains because I have seen it withstand storm after storm.
There was never a doubt in my mind from the moment we met that I was his and he was mine. So it was no surprise to me when he asked me to marry him!
We had looked at rings and talked about wanting to “run off and get married”, so that’s what we did!
Jared surprised me by buying the ring that he knew I loved. He planned an evening that was very “us”. Jared took me to dinner at the restaurant we first met, then back home to have a campfire in the backyard, which is one of our favorite things to do together, then he asked! The evening could not have been more perfect or more us!
We knew we didn’t want the stress and hustle of a big wedding. We simply wanted to be together on a beautiful mountain top to tell each other the love we had. So we took our love to the Mountains of North Carolina and exchanges our vows on the cliffs at Craggy Pinnacle. Vera captured so many beautiful moments that still take our breath away!
