Our outdoor elopement was perfect! Meghan was flexible and helped us have the best chance of having a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Our pictures are incredible- I cried immediately when I opened the link. She captured everything!!

Ethereal, raw, authentic, honest, glowing, natural... just a few ways to describe our photographs from our wedding day. Both my *husband* and I feel the photos capture our nature- easygoing, carefree, light and simple. Not to mention we feel equally gorgeous and handsome through her craft. We don't have enough wall space for the beauty in the diverse shots from the day. Meghan Rolfe is an amazing artist- and you don't even realize as it's happening as she makes you feel natural, not at all awkward or staged during the photoshoot. From first phone conversation ("I think we might, maybe want to run away to Ashevile to elope, perhaps, potentially...") to day of Meghan felt more like a bridesmaid and BFFL than hired professional. Coming from out of state, our elopement could have been stressful but Meghan took care of it all. The all included package from Elope Outdoors is unreal- Meghan picks up a delish cake from a lil bakery in West Asheville, grabs INSANE flowers (and flower crown, ladies--- you gotta do it!) from friends at a local wild flower farm (let Nikki at Flourish do what she wants for your flowers by what's in season, I promise you won't regret it), she sends you questionnaires to find out what your vibe day of and dream wedding looks like and gets to know you as a couple, grabs the bubbly, leads you on an adventure to one of North Carolina's most incredible landscapes and connects you to an officiant (NICK- unreal at personalizing our intimate ceremony- we asked to video chat with him in weeks leading up to elopement to customize ceremony. It took any awkwardness out, again, felt like reconnecting with an old friend. He can be formal and religious or spiritual and hippy-dip. Very flexible team depending on ceremony vision.). Couples require a degree of flexibility and trust to optimize the adventurous spirit of outdoor elopements and unpredictable weather in NC. Meghan watches the weather radar with diligence day of and is flexible to move couples to new locations or to a gorgeous local Asheville inn if mother nature is actin' up. We switched our spot up last minute due to storms and Meghan was clear, knowledgable and communicative of new plan- no stress at all. Meghan acted as a travel agent, wedding planner, photographer and absolute gem to have witness to our most sacred moments. She loves love, loves her craft and loves the natural landscapes she works on daily- and it shows. Prices are unreal affordable and you'll leave with images for the rest of your life that reflect your true spirit. AND- she gets them to you ASAP so you can blast your fam & friends with that surprise announcement. Now we just have to fly back to Asheville for life's other special moments to have Meghan photograph... THANK YOU MEGHAN!

Our experience with Elope Outdoors was everything we could have hoped for. Cassie was with us every step of the way and made sure that all of the details were accounted for. She truly listened and took the time to answer any questions we had. We LOVED the cake and flowers. We also loved the venue (The Ridge) for its breathtaking views. Everyone on the team was incredibly kind. Nick worked with us to create a ceremony that fit us. Our photographs were so beautiful, and Meghan did an amazing job capturing our special moments. I had such a hard time choosing photos to send to family/friends because I love them all SO much! Speaking of capturing special moments, Jenny and Bryan with Heart is Tree Studios have such talent and skill for putting together a video that brings a story to life! The pictures and videos mean so much to us and to our family. We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding with Elope Outdoors. We highly recommend choosing Elope Outdoors if you want a low stress, intimate wedding to focus on celebrating your love story and your commitment to a future together with the stunning backdrop that is the Blue Ridge Mountains. Seriously, I could go on and on about how wonderful this experience was, but the smiles on our faces say it all.

We had an incredible elopement experience all thanks to the Elope Outdoors team! Our wedding truly was everything we wanted and more. From the early planning stages to the day-of, the Elope Outdoors crew made us feel at ease. We're not from North Carolina so planning a destination elopement seemed a little daunting at first but the EO team knew exactly what to do! The entire wedding was planned virtually. Meghan and Cassie were my first points of contact and they were incredibly responsive to any inquiry I had and never made me feel like I was bothering them with my questions. We had a vision in mind for our ceremony but needed to ensure that our grandparents could safely attend. Cassie and Meghan were extremely patient in helping us locate the perfect spot that met all of our family's needs but also made our mountain backdrop dreams come true! Our officiant, Jay, was such a joy to work with! She crafted a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony for us and gave us the creative freedom to make it our very own. Jay provided us with several options for vows which really took the stress out of writing our own from scratch. She was enthusiastic about officiating our nuptials and made us feel so special. On the day of the ceremony, she even colored coordinated her outfit with our wedding theme! She was the perfect officiant and we're so thankful to her for her guidance and genuine presence on our big day! Maddie, our photographer, made everyone feel comfortable and calm in front of the cameras which I think really shined through in our photos! We're absolutely blown away by the composition and quality of every image. Maddie is truly gifted and we're so grateful to her for capturing the essence of our wedding! Our videographers, Bryan and Jenny, did an incredible job of filming our ceremony and the hike for our post-ceremony photoshoot. This dynamic duo was cool, calm, and collected and up for the adventure! Our highlight reel is gorgeous -- the perfect compliation of our first look, our vows, and special moments with our families and one another! We are beyond thrilled with the entire elopement experience and if we could do it all again, we would choose Elope Outdoors!

Elope Outdoors - Asheville is simply amazing!! Working with Elope Outdoors for our wedding was the best decision we ever made. All the vendors involved from cake, florist, officiant, photographer, and videographer were amazing to work with. Cassie was outstanding to coordinate with - she helped us through every step of the process. Meghan Rolfe was also such an amazing photographer. Day of she made us feel so relaxed and reminded us to be in the moment. We absolutely love our photos! We also worked with Heartistree Studios for our wedding video and could not have been happier with the final product. We highly recommend going with a package that includes a video highlight - you will not regret it! We are so honored and grateful to have had Elope Outdoors plan and execute our big day!

Elope Outdoors helped us to plan a perfect, beautiful, intimate elopement from 300 miles away. Cassie and Meghan consistently went above and beyond our expectations of the company to coordinate details for our dream Jewish elopement on top of a mountain. The EO team was responsive to emails- often answering our evening or weekend emails within several hours- and helped us to feel comfortable with strangers planning such an important moment in our lives. Cassie helped us to work through all anxiety and concerns about the various aspects of our day. She not only gave us options for every aspect, but provided detailed pros and cons for each date, location, and time of day. She is truly an expert in this field, and does her work humbly but brilliantly. We selected Elope Outdoors based on the pictures from their blog posts, as we wanted to share high quality images with our loved ones. The photography from our day exceeded all expectations. The photos are stunning and capture our personalities to a tee. We were both slightly nervous about our comfort level with formal photos, as we are both goofy and not always photogenic; but Meghan's warmth and sense of humor put us at ease as soon as we met her on our wedding day. We were surprised by how much fun we had taking the pictures, and blown away by the beauty of the photos. We would recommend Elope Outdoors to any couple that is looking for a team to personalize your special day, especially if you are looking for local experts to help you plan a Blue Ridge Mountain elopement.
