Pretty Place Wedding

Endless seas of Blue Ridge Mountains. Wedding day waterfall swims. The sweetest couple with the biggest hearts.

That’s Mark and Katie, y’all. Two of the gentlest and kindest souls celebrating their day in the sweetest way: A small ceremony in the ever-gorgeous Pretty Place Chapel in upstate South Carolina complete with a newly-wed waterfall wonderland.

They began their day in the absolute best way: sunrise yoga on the porch surrounded by their bridal party. Initially they were going to be blindfolded so they didn’t see each other - but Mark and Katie have never been much for following anyone’s rules. They wanted to see each other and begin their wedding day the way they always will forever - next to each other, breathing it all in, and excited to live their day side-by-side.

The radar called for torrential thunderstorms all day. With winding mountain roads and a mostly-outdoor reception, things would have gotten a little soggy, to say the least. But Mark and Katie didn’t think once about it. They were so stinkin excited to finally marry each other, that they just couldn’t wait to get their day started.

And then the sun came out. It defied all weather radars and apps, and it blessed us all with bountiful sunshine and endless joy.
