Elope NC Vendor Showcase in Cary, NC

Having been a part of Elope NC for a little over a year, now, I was THRILLED to be a part of their second annual Vendor Showcase in mid-June at Chatham Station in Cary, NC! This group has been such a gift: learning more about how different vendors approach elopements, gathering helpful planning resources for my couples who are planning an elopement, connecting with like minded and fantastic vendors, and getting to explore North Carolina, every moment has been a joy. This year’s Vendor Showcase was magical and I’m so stoked to be sharing it with you today.

At this Vendor Showcase, I got to meet up with so many vendors I’d been either admiring from afar on social media or that I’d been chatting with recently and it was a delight. Everyone was so talented, and all there to encourage couples to plan their wedding in a way that pleases them first and foremost! That’s a message I can absolutely get behind and I’m thrilled that so many people in our industry are realizing this is something that matters! 

NC Elopement Photography Booth

For my booth, I had the pleasure of partnering with Jen of Weddings Made to Order. I offered confetti toss photos in front of the truly amazing, bright & colorful ceremony space that Jen designed for this event! Confetti toss photos are always a blast, so I was excited to be able to do so many with the couples who came through. It definitely made all of us laugh – and that made it all worth it.

Beautiful & Borrowed Bridal was on hand for dress try-ons, Stephanie Richardson showed off artful cakes and desserts, Carolina Party Partners had some delicious mixed drinks to try. Thanks to Moladic Entertainment for keeping the energy high and we even had The Poetry Fox on hand creating poems from scratch {such a cool experience!}. As you can see, there were tons of experiences that all of the vendors were offering, as well!

But, perhaps the highlight of the day was a spontaneous elopement AT the showcase! There was a sweet couple who decided they just wanted to go for it and get married in that moment! How incredible is that?
