Not every wedding happens at a church, or a wedding venue, or a beautiful field. Sometimes the act of getting married is enough, and an elopement is perfectly suited. Even in that elopement is in a parking garage.

from the photographer: “The Covid restrictions might have pushed Natasha and Anthony to park their plans of having a grand destination wedding in Columbia, but that did not stop them from having a chic and remarkable parking garage elopement in Jacksonville!
The couple has been sweethearts since high school and has been together for 14 years. Although they have been through many things together, the challenge of having to postpone what they thought was their dream wedding was a whole different level. But nothing could stop their overwhelming love for each other – that led them to decide to have a modern elopement in a parking garage in Jacksonville. As Natasha would describe it, their special day was nothing like they have initially expected but it was actually better than they could have ever imagined!
It was a very intimate ceremony. The day started with a first look at the nearby riverwalk. The very second Anthony saw his bride wearing a classic wedding dress from The Wedding Edit was a delight to capture. Natasha was so effortlessly elegant. Her glamorous shoes from Lulus perfectly matched her entire look. Not to mention how her makeup done by Timeless Beauty By Alex made her even lovelier. The groom couldn’t help but get mesmerized by her bride, and it was such a precious moment!
Afterward, we headed up to a parking garage for their modern elopement ceremony. With towering buildings surrounding them, the couple had their immediate family witness their vow exchange. As the ceremony ended, they popped confetti, and we drove around in a custom car arranged by Wisteria and took photos of the newly eloped couple. It was such an incredible idea to incorporate a unique car for their elopement. They both had fun driving around with the bride holding her elegant bridal bouquet from In Bloom Florist up in the air and wearing that cool Revel Made leather jacket.
The couple had a surprise special candlelit first dance to end the night of their parking garage elopement. They are truly happy to have these moments with each other to treasure, and they hope to celebrate with all of their loved ones soon!”
