Dunia and Evan traveled to the mountains of Asheville to elope with their nearest and dearest. Surrounded by their immediate families during a tumultuous year, they exchanged vows at The Swag, seemingly on top of the world.
Personal touches include rosemary pinned to everyone's lapel (including mine!) from Dunia's Croatian parents and the Breaking of the Glass representing Evan's Jewish heritage. Personal touches to show who you are as individuals and as a couple are must - such beautiful + meaningful moments to look back on.
There were mementos from loved ones on Dunia's wrist and above her veil. They wished to have friends with them for the celebration but 2020 had different plans. They adjusted beautifully for an intimate outdoor celebration instead. I hope the photos will help loved ones feel close to the day.
For cocktail hour, the group of 7 danced to a local bluegrass band and toasted champagne with the sun fading behind the mountains in the background.
