Home is wherever I'm with you

Angie & Adam met in college at ECU and live in Charlotte. They wanted their wedding to be a good party, and for all their guests to be happy! Their bridal party was READY to party! The two of them loved everything dark & moody just like I do. The Cadillac Service Garage caught their eye right away with the black and while tile in the front lobby. This venue is a hidden gem for Greensboro, or even all of North Carolina! The exposed brick, the loft for cocktail hour, right in downtown Greensboro, and an outdoor patio for photos.

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!

Are you ready for these AMAZING details y’all!?! Jess & Angel decided to get married before their actual wedding day on a wim! Not only did they drive all the way from Raleigh, they showed their love in SUCH a beautiful way! Thank you to our team! I loved working with all of you!
