The Parker Mill Wedding : A + K
This was one of those wedding days where everything was absolutely perfect! We were working with one of our favorite couples, at our favorite NC mountain venue, with a ton of our favorite vendors! If you're thinking you recognize these cuties, you probably saw Aaron and Katie on our blog last year for their engagement session. (If you didn't, you should totally click here!) Having already worked with them once, and having met their families on the day of their engagement session, we knew we were in for a real treat! At the time of their engagement, The Parker Mill was still putting all the final pieces together for their amazing mountain wedding venue, but by the time Katie and Aaron's wedding day rolled around, The Parker Mill was rocking and rolling!
That entire week leading up to their wedding day, it was looking like a good chance what every couple dreads for their special day. RAIN! Naturally we watched it all week too and as fate would have it, rain clouds loomed in the distance most of the day, but for the most part they never really impacted their day. This was awesome because it allowed them to still have the wedding they were envisioning with the mountains of western North Carolina as their backdrop. The cloud cover actually provided just the right amount of shade and it made for beautiful light throughout the entire day for their photos! Full disclosure we absolutely love these overcast days and the cherry on top is when the rain can hold off until the evening so we can sneak out for some beautiful night shots in the rain....which we definitely did!
Like every wedding day, we always have a favorite part of the day that sticks out in our mind when we look back over a couple's images and get to relive that day with them. For Katie and Aaron's wedding day it was the emotion. From the first touch, to the first look down the aisle, to laughing with loved ones on the dance floor, their day was filled with so many emotions. I think what made it extra special is that all of their friends and family were able to make it (or like 99.9% of them). Having just gone through the year that was 2020 we were blessed with the opportunity to be a part of so many moments with our couples. Many of those moments and celebrations, their families and friends weren't always able to be present. Getting to witness these two say their "I dos" and have everyone around them to share in that love, made it that much more special. We hope you enjoy following along!
Special thanks to all of the amazing vendors!
