Overview of Pierina & Nick’s Airbnb Elopement in North Carolina

Getting Ready in North Carolina A-frame

Pierina & Nick chose to spend the majority of the day hanging out and getting ready together. The hair & make up artist came to the Airbnb to do Pierina’s hair & make up while Nick got ready and played with their cute doggo. They laughed and soaked in every moment while Noah Kahan played in the background and Nick sipped on his favorite IPA.

Once they were both ready, they took a quiet moment to write their vows to each other. It was important to them to wait until the day of their elopement to write their vows so that it would be more meaningful. They would be feeling the high of the wedding day and the words would be so full of love.

First Look

To go with the theme of the day, Pierina & Nick wanted to have a more intimate first look. Not just the classic shoulder tap! So while Pierina got ready upstairs, Nick stood out in front of the Airbnb. Then when she was ready, they stood back to back while holding hands and just soaking in the feeling of being in the moment with each other. When they were ready they turned around and saw each other in the most incredible first look EVER!

Private North Carolina Elopement Ceremony

The incredible a-frame that they were staying at made for the PERFECT back drop for their wedding ceremony! The beautiful florals along with with glass cylinders and candles made the “alter” even more romantic. They said their vows in private while laughing and reminiscing on the their journey as a couple.

Intimate Picnic Reception

Now for the BEST part! Pierina & Nick new they didn’t want to skip having a fun “reception” just because they were eloping. So they had an incredible picnic set up where they fed each other and played with their dog. Then ended it with a champagne pop!

BUT that’s not all! To end the most magical day, Pierina & Nick danced around the campfire while the sun went down. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Intimate & Unique North Carolina Airbnb Elopement

Pierina & Nick knew they wanted something intimate & unique for their elopement day so that is exactly what they did. They planned a day that wasn’t stressful and that was full of the things they loved most, like their dog.

They wanted it to be just the two of them because they wanted to be able to truly focus on each other and not have to worry about anything or anyone else. The unique A-frame made the perfect backdrop for them because they have always loved how cozy a-frames are.
