This beautiful Winter Elopement at Bearwallow Mountain just outside Asheville is one we are so excited to share with you! Holly and Wes proved that winter elopements are worth braving the cold, and that love is definitely not cancelled during a worldwide pandemic!
Oh the places they went! This elopement started out at the antique themed Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville. They stayed at this hotel together so we took photos around the inside of the hotel trying to keep warm. They got some amazing photos at the hotel, and we love that this property is unique and unlike any other hotel in the area!
Winter elopements take a little extra planning, and a few extra breaks to keep warm! It was very cold on the day Holly and Wes eloped. We had to plan to use some indoor portrait locations, and a ceremony location that didn’t have a long hike. On the way to Bearwallow mountain, we stopped at the Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville. This is like an indoor mall that has a really cool vibe, and we got some great indoor photos there!
Of course we also had to make a pit stop at the famous love is not canceled mural wall at Spicer Green Jewelers! This mural was commissioned in April 2020 during the pandemic. Spicer Greene Jewelers said in their blog post their store has been celebrating love with Western Carolina for almost a century.
We ended the day at Bearwallow mountain for their ceremony and sunset portraits overlooking the beautiful Asheville mountains.
