The Providence Cotton Mill Wedding | Maiden, NC | Rachel & Kevin

As a wedding photographer, I get to hear so many incredible stories of how couples find each other and fall in love. But once in a while, there’s a story that stands out because it sounds like something from a movie. That’s the case with Rachel & Kevin, whose wedding I had the privilege of photographing at The Providence Cotton Mill.

If you’ve been following my work for a while, you may remember Brittany and Eric’s Charleston wedding. Would you believe me if I told you that THIS wedding is where Rachel and Kevin met for the first time? If you don’t have goosebumps yet, what if I told you that I actually took a photo of these two dancing together during Brittany and Eric’s reception? Little did we all know that one day I would be photographing their own wedding! Talk about full circle moments.

Of all the places that I could photograph the wedding of a couple with such an incredible story, I can’t think of anywhere better than The Providence Cotton Mill. It exudes charm and is surrounded by beautiful forests. I absolutely adored what their florist Daria did with their flowers. She curated one of the most beautiful color palettes I’ve seen.

Another fun fact about Rachel and Kevin is that they’re both doctors. It was probably one of the safest weddings I’ve ever been to because many of the guests were doctors as well. They definitely knew how to have a good time. It was a lot of fun.

One of my favorite moments had to be Rachel and Kevin’s bubble exit. Huge smiles on their faces… and thousands of bubbles surrounding them as they exited the Providence Cotton Mill, now husband and wife. This was certainly one for the books! And who knows? Maybe next year I’ll be photographing a wedding for a couple that met at Rachel and Kevin’s wedding? A girl can dream, right?
