MK and I used to ride the bus together back in high school (along with Matt, whose wedding we did in the spring), but she was a few years younger than me, so I never really got to know her. She was a guest at a couple of the weddings we shot this year, we enjoyed talking with her at those weddings, and we were really excited when she asked us if we'd be a part of her wedding! Small word!
Joe and MK met through a family friend, and they've been together for about a year and a half now. Joe proposed after a strenuous hike to the top of Grandfather Mountain -she said he made her work for it haha! In all seriousness, I can't even imagine how she must have been feeling in that moment, surrounded by the most beautiful view while her man asked for her hand in marriage! While Joe and MK have enjoyed the wedding planning, their main focus has been on the marriage preparation, the ceremony, and the Sacrament of marriage, which is just so wonderful. We can't wait to watch as her grandfather marries them in April at a beautiful Catholic wedding!
We did their session in the cutest area in Davidson! I found out about the back of this neighborhood when a senior asked to do her session there, and I fell in love with it! It is such a hidden gem, as you'd never know the red, covered bridge and cute paths are behind it, so I was excited when MK and Joe were up for doing the session there. Here are some of our favorites from their session!
