A Romantic Elopement

samantha and nick 

I had the best time capturing the Fleenor elopement this past Friday. Did you see our story on Instagram with this adorable bride?! This was my first ever elopement and it could not have been a more sweet, romantic day.  I could get used to the how laid back this wedding was 😉 Samantha (Sam) and Nick got engaged three months ago. They didn’t want to wait any longer and got married with just their two best friends as witnesses (and me too!) on a perfect summer afternoon at the Paoli courthouse 💍

I convinced our laid back bride to let me capture her getting ready ✨ She got her hair done at this adorable little salon in Orleans. The stylist had just moved into her shop recently and as a thank you for doing her wedding hair, the bride got her the cutest Etsy sign. Sam was so relaxed and fun as she wore a beautiful floral robe with her new initials monogramed on it 💕

From the salon we headed to the Paoli courthouse where we ventured outside with the judge to this beautiful patio…it’s not at all what I pictured for a courthouse wedding. The weather was perfect and made for the best lighting throughout the whole day ☀️

We traveled over to the gardens at West Baden…have you been here yet?! It is just beautiful and has so many different spots. We took advantage of them and I just love the variety of this session It didn’t hurt how adorable the fun bride’s dress was 💗

Enjoy the new Mr. and Mrs. Fleenor …


Samantha and Nick, thank you for allowing me to capture your perfect day...it was just that, perfect!

XOXO, Natalie
