It was a late October evening and we were waiting 45 minutes up on the parkway for Jennifer and Shawn to arrive for their elopement. As always we were early, but then all of a sudden we start getting texts and calls (when we had NO service so it was even crazier) from numerous people: the bride and groom's GPS wouldn't take them to the correct place no matter if they punched in the address or clicked on it from google-- their GPS kept sending them somewhere else either in California (um, nowhere near North Carolina) or a road name similar to the one they needed to be on. To top it off, Jennifer and Shawn weren't together, they had ridden separately. After a lot of extremely swift planning, we decided to regroup at the botanical gardens in town, but we were still 45 minutes away. So we raced the sun after we hung up and made it to the botanical gardens while there was still a little light. We had less than 45 minutes of light but we made it happen! It was nothing short of magical, perfect, and worked out better than we could have hoped for! The autumn colors, the little creek area, the open spot where we did the ceremony, the light (or lack thereof haha), everyone's GPS's taking them to the right place that time, and the couple. Jennifer and Shawn are perfect, they were such good sports and an incredible people! Enjoy!
