You may remember Niki from her awesome bridal session among the pines. Mike and Niki hosted their Overlook Barn Wedding on April Fools Day, the first wedding day of our Spring wedding season. It was a gorgeous but windy and cold day in the NC mountains. These two originally planned their wedding for Autumn 2021, but due to Niki’s father almost losing his life to Covid, postponed their wedding day. It was a miracle for her father to survive and be able to attend her wedding day in good health. Niki & her father shared a special first look moment and we loved getting to witness their sweet relationship.
Mike & Niki chose an outdoor ceremony overlooking the beautiful mountains. They had plenty of blankets for guests to wrap up in and keep warm as they exchanged their vows. Then guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the Cliffside barn while we took family photos, bridal party photos, and some sweet romantic, but cold, one on ones.
We hopped in the back of Mike’s beloved Toyota tacoma truck and drove up to higher views. It was even windier and colder now with the sun setting and at the higher elevations but we got a few last minute portraits of the newlyweds before they returned to all their guests.
Their reception was full of good food, great drinks, tons of dancing. Including special greek dances with the bride’s father and her family. These two know how to throw a fun party!
Mike & Niki, thanks for choosing us to be a part of your special day! We wish you both nothing but the best!!
