Small Town Military Elopement

July 18, 2018

Jess and Ethan eloped with less than a weeks notice and over 3,000 miles between them. Ethan, currently residing on Fort Benning Georgia and a recent Basic Training graduate while Jess is a full time student and artist studying at Washington State University Vancouver. They had spoken about marriage in the past but it was not made official until the Saturday prior. Jess and her sister Jenna hopped on a flight to meet Ethan for his graduation and to surprise him with a wedding. Jenna got herself ordained online and performed the ceremony while two of Ethan's friends from basic training stood in as the wedding party. They exchanged their vows as well as their rings surrounded by kudzu vines and used the rest of the remaining sunlight to walk down to Upatoi Creek for portraits to embrace their brand new union.
