Home is wherever I'm with you

Charlotte & Alex are from the same small town in North Carolina. They went to the same high school and had mutual friends. Their grandparents even went to the same church and were friends, but barely knew each other. 10 years after their high school graduation, they met again and the attraction was pretty much immediate. They got engaged 3 years later. After buying a house and taking a trip to South America, they decided 2019 was their year to get married. They didn’t want the stress of planning a big wedding but still wanted to make the day we marry extra special and memorable. They decided on Olivette Riverside Park for their Asheville Micro Wedding after Katrina from Destination Elopement WNC helped them decide! Olivette Riverside Park has a beautiful view of the river yet still accessible for wheelchairs. This was very important for their family to be able to move around without hiking a mountain!
