Hayes Elopement / by Kendall Whiteley

If you’re thinking about eloping, this amazing couple will give you all the feels! 

We met Laura & Dustin awhile back, shortly after they got engaged, and were planning their dream wedding. After much consideration, countless hours of planning a wedding that wasn’t “them”, they decided to scratch it ALL and elope!! Laura & Dustin are a lot like us-nontraditional (which btw is totally okay!!!). They chose to elope in the NC mountains at Max Patch on a Wednesday. That Wednesday just happened to be there 5 year anniversary-how sweet is that?! 

The day started just like any other normal day. Laura woke up, did her own hair/makeup, drank coffee and spent time with her fav little pup. We picked her up + drove her to Max Patch! We hiked with Laura to the top where she saw Dustin for the first time, privately, and exchanged vows. NOT A DRY EYE. After that, they chose a spot and then their intimate and beautiful ceremony was held. It doesn’t get more perfect than that!
