St. Helena Chapel of Ease Elopement by Christi Clark Photogrpahy

Kristen + Patrick's Intimate Beaufort Elopement

Kristen + Patrick originally planned for a Lowcountry wedding along the river with 100 of their closest friends and family but they quickly realized small and intimate was more their style.  They decided on a December elopement on the magical grounds of The St. Helena Chapel of Ease and we're lucky enough to have a clear day with the temperature hovering in the low 70s.  Kristen wore a strapless gown and all white bouquet while Patrick donned a grey suit and green bow tie.  The guest list was small, only their officiant, Christi Johnson Garcia, and photographer, Christi Clark, were there to witness the nuptials. As the sun peered into the Chapel, the couple said 'I do' before snapping some frame-able photos amongst the ruins.  They continued the celebration at Anchorage 1770 in Downtown Beaufort where they cut the cake and enjoyed dinner at Old Bull Tavern.
