Black Balsam Knob, North Carolina outdoor wedding image in the rain of The bride, groom, and guests under umbrellas
The bride, groom, and guests listen while the best man reads a poem.
This COVID-19 wedding took place amid the clouds, the mist, and the fog that settled over a stand of trees that was more than 6,000 feet above sea level.
The couple planned to have anywhere from 50-100 people at a ceremony set to take place in a historic courthouse. But then, the pandemic hit, and all plans were blown out the window.
When the couple realized they needed to postpone their wedding celebration, they decided to go ahead and get married during the quarantine, and to put their plans for a bigger celebration and reception on hold for a year.
The couple chose one of their favorite hiking spots for their ceremony, Sam's Knob Trailhead atop Black Balsam Knob in Western North Carolina. The spectacular view of the surrounding mountains, they had hoped would surround them, was replaced by a romantic mist.
