Elegant & Emotive Spring Wedding with Rich Greens and White Florals

This elegant intimate spring microwedding at Parker Mill featured a stunning color palette of rich greens and white florals. The bride wore a beautiful sleeveless sheath dress with removable puffy sleeves, complemented by a gorgeous veil that she waited until the ceremony to wear down the aisle. The couple, who met while they were in dental school at UNC Chapel Hill, had their professor as their officiant, adding a sweet personal touch to their special day.

Emotions ran high throughout the day, with the bride sharing a heartwarming first look with her father. Following this tender moment, the bride and groom shared a first touch in the ceremony pavilion, holding hands without seeing each other and exchanging their personal vows. The groom looked sharp in his white jacket, perfectly complementing the bride’s elegant attire.
