Real Weddings

This forest elopement is almost too gorgeous to be real! We're obsessed with this couple's chic style, intimate ceremony setting and dramatically stunning waterfall portraits. These two were not without their hardships though, which the bride bravely shared. 

She said, "When I was 7 years old my father became very sick with cancer and was told he wouldn't live more than a couple months. He luckily made it a lot longer, but was sick all those years I was growing up until he passed away when I was 16. I have had a huge hole in my heart since then and I never thought anything would make it better or that I could ever be truly happy. I was blessed to have such a wonderful mom raise me and support me my whole life and she knew that David was the one even before we started dating. Then when David walked into my life and we started dating, I felt it."

If that's not enough to make you tear up, the way they look at each other during their candlelit forest ceremony definitely will!
