Sarahbeth is the creative genius behind Unabashed Apparel, a handmade, sustainable women’s clothing line, so when she and Gracia were ready to get married they did it in style.
From Sarahbeth: In October we eloped to upstate New York. We didn’t want anyone, including the photographer (who also happens to be a dear friend) to be present for our vows – we wanted to be married completely alone. After we eloped we went on a honeymoon to Scotland and Ireland.
We held a bonfire celebration two days after Thanksgiving in our North Carolina Appalachian mountains. We served grilled cheese, homemade tomato soup, apple cider with whiskey, and pie. The day centered around a toasting at 4-ish in the afternoon. My brother and father played their guitars after the sun went down. It was a wonderfully laid back, down home day.
I did indeed make Gracia’s and my outfits both for the elopement and the bonfire. (Outside my women’s apparel line I take a couple of wedding dress commissions a year.)
