Alex and Vanessa decided to elope the old fashion way, at the courthouse. However, the idea that a couple runs away and elopes against their families wishes is a thing of the past. It was so wonderful to have this couple surrounded by their family on such an important day.
After these two eloped at the Mecklenburg Courthouse, which unfortunately does not allow cameras inside, we made our way to Marshall Park in Charlotte. Here we laughed and made some memorable photographs. The park was occupied with visitors, as most public spaces are but we found a wonderful tower stairwell that had panoramic skyline views and some much-needed shade from the September heat. Regardless of the heat and humidity the love this couple has for each other and the love their family has for their relationship shone through. It was a gorgeous Friday evening in the park with wonderful people.
