kristin + ark // north georgia elopement photography / by Rachel Iliadis

my word. these two. this wedding. i'm going to try to keep it under 5,000 words. there’s nothing quite like following along on a couple’s love journey and feeling like you were right there from the start. ark + kristin have become two of the dearest people to dimitri and me. i met ark back in high school and roomed with kristin before i said "i do" myself. ark is a dashing musician and craftsman. kristin is a wildly talented interior designer and stylist. plain and simple, they are incredible humans with hearts of gold. their story and love is absolutely beautiful. it's the type of love that reaches into the depths of their souls - an authentic, sincere love. pure and true.when kristin told me their plans to elope, i was elated for them. it fit them perfectly. they desired to exchange vows in God's creation without the fuss of a large wedding. they dreamed of their day being intimate and focusing solely on the covenant they were entering together.

based on how rad this couple is, it's not too much of surprise that their celebration was filled with amazing design and style. from her gorgeous free people gown to the beautiful evening sunset, they were gifted the most perfect day. the essence of romance.

these two completely captured my heart. it was an absolute privilege to photograph their most beloved day.
