Mandy & Derek's Elopement

The secret is out! Mandy & Derek couldn't wait for their wedding this October, so they eloped and I got to be a part of it!


When I pulled up to the farm Bell Buckle, TN, it was pouring down rain. Luckily just as Mandy and Derek pulled in the skies opened up and the rain stopped for the duration of their session!


Mandy chose for her first look a non traditional black lace dress with a vintage bird cage veil. She is a dream! Derek looked dapper in a traditional suit.





Mandy owns the comic book themed store Dorkside Toys, and loves Star Wars and Disney, so she incorporated her loves in some really cute ways! The Disney mugs are from their Trip to Disney at the beginning of the year and are collectable items. She arranged her bouquet from gorgeous wooden flowers and the base is a light - saver. Their cake has her favorite Star Wars quote on it "I Love You, I Know." And of course they included their baby Yoda with them to hold their rings.





They kept the secret of being eloped for a few weeks now but announced to their friends and family they just couldn't wait to tie the knot.





Mandy did change to a white traditional wedding dress to get some more shots like these...




And she wanted to incorporate her grandmother's fur (I love furs!) and we found this cool vintage couch in the barn for the perfect backdrop. How cool is this?




These two are so adorable in love and I'm so happy I could share this experience with them. Much love and happiness to them!
