Morgan & Zach’s elopement in the Blue Ridge Mountains was perfectly imperfect. These two were looking forward to mountain views at one of our most popular destinations, Black Balsam Knob. Instead, they arrived to thick fog & no views. But, these two didn’t let that interrupt their day. They embraced the weather & as a result, their day & their images turned out absolutely stunning.
We all know that things don’t always go as planned (for me, they rarely do), and that definitely applies to weddings and elopements. The trick is learning to be flexible and take it in stride. Just like anything in life, a wedding day is 100x more wonderful when you let go of the little things and focus on what’s most important. This is a day where marrying your person is ALL THAT MATTERS.
I am currently writing this in the middle of the CoronaVirus pandemic, engaged, rescheduling all my spring couples, and trying to stay calm about my own wedding plans that will likely need to change due to these circumstances. There is a TON of uncertainty right now, but I want to take this as an opportunity to embrace this season & whatever may come with my wedding day. Like many other worried brides, I hate that things aren’t working out the way I planned. But, I am keeping faith that things will turn out the way they should be as long as we remain flexible & remember WHY we are having this “party” in the first place. If we all focus on the people around us & embrace the twists and turns, the day we’ve each been waiting for will turn out just like its supposed to.
And the best part? These images are stunning because Morgan & Zach embraced the fog & didn’t let it get them down. They embraced the unexpected & as a result received some of my personal all time favorite images. Let’s embrace the twist and turns… as far as this virus, take it one day at a time & remember to love the people surrounding us well.
