Megan + Jonathan - Elopement on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville North Carolina

Guys, this is an emotional one so get your tissues ready! The church filled with 300 guests and the bride realized this is not how she wanted to start her married life, she didn't want the show, she just wanted her man. So they called of the ceremony last minute, and ran away to the blue ridge parkway to breathe. This is where we met a lonesome man staring into mountains. The man told us that he got married in this very spot 25 years ago and that he comes here to remember his wife who had recently passed from cancer. Chills. All of the sudden Megan said she was ready to do this, right here, right now. We invited the man over to join, and Megan + Jon said their I do's in a beautiful, intimate ceremony, officiated by one of her best friends, with just 3 people there. After, they went to their reception site at Celine and Company and partied the night away with their friends and family.
