Summer Max Patch Elopement

Well, this day started with an overload of emotions. Our drive up to Max Patch was flooded with rain. Watching the radar like a hawk and planning for a rain delay and clear umbrellas. When we reached the parking lot at Max Patch we rejoiced when there was no rain. In fact, as our time went on the clouds cleared and the sun shone brightly. And our sweet couple tied the knot in their beautiful Max Patch Elopement.

Just off the Appalachian Trail on top of Max Patch Mountain near Hot Springs is the most beautiful view. This 4,600-ft. bald mountain was cleared and used as pasture in the 1800s. Today, it’s a 350-acre tract of open land on a high knob with 360-degree views. It’s one of the most spectacular settings you’ll experience in the Blue Ridge. And one of the most beautiful places to elope.

Lindsay and Sam were married on the top of the mountain with their immediate families. In a sweet and short ceremony in an open field surrounded by the majesty of the mountains.

Lindsay and Sam’s Story

Both from the Low Country in South Carolina. Lindsay and Sam met when Sam moved to Charleston when he started coaching. He is the coach of the same football team as Lindsay’s dad. They met at one of the games Lindsay attended and later became friends on social media. Sam proposed under the mistletoe at the Holiday Festival of Lights at their local county park.Max Patch Elopement Bride Looking at Camera with Wind Blowing In Her Hair Photo Max Patch Elopement Bride Smiling at the Camera Photos Max Patch Elopement Bride Looking at her Flowers and Detail of Ring on Flowers Photos Max Patch Elopement Bride Walking Through the Field Smiling Photo Max Patch Elopement Bride Tucking her Hair PhotoMax Patch Elopement Bride Smiling in Filed PhotoMax Patch Elopement Bride Looking Over Shoulder in Filed with Mountains PhotoMax Patch Elopement Groom Smiling and Detail of Fence PhotosMax Patch Elopement Bride Walking to Meet Her Husband To Be Photo Max Patch Elopement Bride and Groom First Look Photo Max Patch Elopement Bride and Groom First Looking Hugging Photos Max Patch Elopement Bride and Groom First Look Hugging Photo Max Patch Elopement Bride and Groom First Look Hugging Photos Max Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Smiling at Each Other Photo Max Patch Elopement Ceremony Bride Walking In With Her Father PhotoMax Patch Elopement Ceremony Bride Walking In with Her Dad and Trading Vows Photos Max Patch Elopement Ceremony Bride and Groom Exchanging Rings Photos Max Patch Elopement Ceremony Couples First Kiss and Exit Photos Max Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Nose to Nose PhotoMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Holding Hands and Nose to Nose PhotosMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Kissing PhotoMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Walking Holding Hands PhotoMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Looking At Each Other with Mountains in The Background PhotoMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Nose to Nose PhotosMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Nose to Nose Smiling Photo Max Patch Elopement Couple Holding Hands Walking and Spinning Photos Max Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Kissing Photo Max Patch Elopement Bride Looking at The Camera While Groom Nuzzles In Photo Max Patch Elopement Groom Spinning Bride in Field Photo Max Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Spinning in Field Photo Max Patch Elopement Couple Nose to Nose Photos Max Patch Elopement Couple Spinning in Field Photo Max Patch Elopement Couple Nose to Nose PhotoMax Patch Elopement Couple in the Trees Smiling at The Camera and Detail of Grass PhotosMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Sitting and Kissing in Tall Grass PhotoMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Kissing in Trees PhotoMax Patch Elopement Detail of Ring and Bride and Groom Smiling at Camera PhotosMax Patch Elopement Bride and Groom Sitting in Tall Grass Photo
