Christian Lemons (28 and a photographer) and Jeremy Salig (32 and a chef) met “serendipitously,” as she describes it, through their shared affinity for “nature, the arts, good food, happy and positive living, and love.” Echoing their engagement at a mountainside campsite, the two tied the knot during a private ceremony at the stunning summit of Craggy Pinnacle, overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina. “We are incredibly inspired by nature and wanted our union of love to reflect that,” Christian says of their simple elopement. Christian was an ethereal beauty in a vintage-inspired gown with lace detailing that billowed in the mountain breeze as they stood hand in hand on the rock’s rugged edifice. She carried a brightly colored bohemian bouquet with hints of eucalyptus, and the couple exchanged wedding bands inherited from Jeremy's grandparents. After the nuptials, Jeremy took Christian to his restaurant to celebrate and dine on local fare. Juliette Cheatham

Invitations were adorned with artfully painted watercolor florals and greenery as well as flowing gray cursive font. “We are both artists and wanted to incorporate our personal touch,” Christian says.
Christian carried an asymmetrical bouquet of eucalyptus accompanied by bright pops of summery color. Daisies in warm tones of orange and pink were added for a natural, bohemian aesthetic.
Inherited from Jeremy's grandparents, Christian wears a princess-cut diamond set on a simple band accompanied by a pave diamond wedding band.
Christian donned a flowing vintage-inspired gown with sweet lace detailing, a scoop-cut neck and short sleeves. “I wanted an ethereal feel,” she of her flowing dress.
Jeremy sported a casual summer look in camel-colored pants and an untucked navy button-down. He looked dashing in a floral printed tie and a pair funky thick rimmed glasses.
