Providence Country Club Elopement

The COVID pandemic definitely turned the wedding and event industry upside down. Anyone planning a wedding from 2020-2022 had some tough decisions to make as they wanted to keep everyone safe but also enjoy the special time to the fullest. Natalie and Kenny chose to come down from New Jersey and have an elopement at the Providence Country Club.

The Ceremony and Nighttime fun!

Natalie and Kenny spent their special day with those who matter most – their 4-year-old twin boys and Natalie’s best friend (eloping in Charlotte was actually her idea!). They leisurely got ready at the stunning Ballantyne Hotel. Next, we headed over to the club for their intimate ceremony. Afterward, we grabbed a few portraits utilizing the beautiful scenery the Providence Country Club offers, then the couple relaxed and enjoyed some champagne (while also trying to keep from melting in the scorching Southern summer heat). Natalie and Kenny then went back to The Ballantyne for an outfit change. Arguably the best part had yet to come – nighttime portraits at Romare Bearden Park in Uptown.

Natalie and Kenny were dressed to kill and they slayed from day to night. Here are a few of our photographs from their Providence Country Club elopement!

For those who are currently wedding planning, while eloping may not be the first idea to come to mind, there are many benefits! We previously wrote a blog post on why eloping may be for you. You can check that out here!
