“Camp Pinnacle in Hendersonville, NC was the perfect setting for our shoot because of the variety of outdoor scenes and props to play with. From the rustic wooden dock and bright red canoes to the lush lakeside forest, my creativity ran wild and my vision for how I saw the couple moving throughout their wedding day came to life!” [Erica]

Check out our reasons why you should hire an elopement planner.

Deciding What To Do During Your Elopement

So what should you do if you don’t plan a hiking elopement together? During this canoe elopement, the couple’s adventure began exchanging their wedding vows on a dock, overlooking the lake and then jumping into a red canoe enjoying the scenery together.

Then they had a candlelit dinner and then snuggled together in a cozy treehouse setup where they shared honey mead together.

This styled session shows couples how it’s important to think about doing activities you both love during your elopement day together.

Hiring The Right Team

Erica tells us she really loves how this styled session came out. If you’re a couple thinking about eloping, then hiring a team can help you bring your own elopement vision to life.

“One of my favorite memories from the day was the solo canoe paddle I took at the end of the shoot as the sun was setting. It allowed me to reflect on the amazing group of people that came together to make it all happen and how rewarding it felt after all of the hard work we put into it.” [Erica]

Advice To Couples Who Are Planning Their Elopement

So are you ready to elope? Here’s Erica’s advice for you:

“Be true to you. Find a quiet place with your partner to share what elements you’d like to incorporate into your day that would truly speak to you and your story. What will make your day authentic and special? Discover these answers by reliving the day you met, your first dates, and what you enjoy doing together. Through these conversations, you’ll find creative ways to incorporate unique elements, like canoeing, into your wedding day.” [Erica]
