My precious friend, Bethany Burt, wrote the following words about one of our beautiful experiences together in North Carolina a few months back:

For those who know me, you probably know of my positive attitude and nature, my sense of adventure or the light that I can’t help but share with people. But for those who know me well, you know I’ve had a deep chip on my shoulder for quite some time now. I’ve been trying to find the words to describe the darkness that has leaked in and filled me over the last two and a half years. I suppose I’ve found them.
Who says you can’t make your own wedding video?
Austin and I decided to start vlogging on this new adventure to keep our family and friends posted and seeing our smiling, sweaty faces while we are away!
For those of you that may not be familiar with mine and Austin’s story, I thought I’d share what I wrote for BurtCo‘s 2017 Wedding Photo Giveaway contest. As much as I detest calling it a fairytale, it does involve a castle (manor house), conflict, and the closest thing to Prince Charming that anyone could possibly get.
Holy Moly. We eloped in a gravel parking lot on a Tuesday afternoon in January in Downtown Asheville. We had craft tacos immediately after the (tiny and to-the-point) ceremony. It was perfect.
