Casual Elopement – Sarah and David

Casual Elopement

Sarah and David – November 18, 2023

Sarah and David’s casual elopement at Chapel in the Hollow was nothing short of magical! They gave the chapel a touch of elegance with black and blush fabric and our moody black, gold, and blush florals. Sarah was an absolute vision in her stunning cold shoulder dress with a mid-length train, layered to perfection, and guess what? She snagged it on Amazon for just $189! Meanwhile, David kept it cool and comfy in jeans paired with a stylish plaid dress shirt.
The smiles on their faces lit up the whole ceremony! Her children played the sweet role of walking her down the aisle, adding that extra touch of warmth to the day. And why did they choose today of all days? It’s not just any day; it’s her grandmother’s birthday.
To honor this special connection, Sarah used vintage gold and diamond rings passed down from her beloved grandmother as her wedding set.
Oh, did I mention the cake? A fabulous creation from Cakes by Bakin’ Bishop, topped with a stylish skull. Cheers to love, family, and unique celebrations!

From the Bride:

We met online. I work night shift so we met for dinner before I went to work. It was an instant connection. We sat in the restaurant just talking, we didn’t even realize we had been talking for so long but we never ordered. Lol! Two weeks after our first date we spent the weekend together. After that weekend had passed, he just asked will you marry me. I instantly said yes. 

We decide on an East Tennessee wedding because David worked in TN for a while and loves the area. He has been wanting to bring me to the area because I’ve never been. So we thought what a perfect time. I am looking forward to being his wife. The date (11/18) is special to me because it was my grandmothers birthday.

For fun, honestly, we just enjoy spending time together and being with the kids. Movie nights are big for us.
