Gatlinburg Elopement at Ely's Mill

Last weekend I got to photograph the most beautiful, intimate Gatlinburg elopement out at Ely's Mill. Ely's Mill is a super popular spot for elopements, but totally for good reason. The area is gorgeous, and the only sound you can hear is the rushing water from the river. Marrissa and Jesse decided to go for a natural backdrop with the river in the background, which was perfect since it was just the two of them. We also were able to explore the area a little and find some beautiful photo locations. There is something so special about elopements that I absolutely love, especially outdoors with only the sounds of nature. It was such a gorgeous elopement and a true moment of peace amidst all the craziness happening right now in the world. Can't wait to do more of these.
