Today on Marry Me Ink is tattooed bride Kristy and Spiryt’s elopement at Vance Birthplace State Park, surrounded by close family and a gorgeous landscape of woodland and mountains. They both made the decision to have a “no fuss” wedding without frills and decoration and instead chose to spend their budget on hiring Alexis Schwallier Photography, who also shot their Edward Scissorhands inspired garden engagement which was featured on Marry Me Ink a short while ago.
Honestly, just the simplicity and no fuss feel of our wedding day represented us as a couple. Our elopement was outside at the Vance Birthplace State Park in Asheville, North Carolina. We both wanted a chill, hippie like vibe to our day where everything was just go with the flow. We had no dress code, no theme, and we didn’t want our wedding to be fussy. We are both pretty chill people who love beautiful things. That’s why we wanted to have the elements of the mountains around us for our big day.
Stay true to what you both want for your wedding. It’s about the two of you coming together, not everyone else. I knew that I didn’t want a huge spectacle of a wedding because that’s not me and not us. It was challenging at times when we had to justify our choice of eloping, but in the end we are completely happy with our decision.
