Elizabeth Folk & Mitchell Moore

June 20, 2020

Elizabeth and Mitchell met through mutual friends while attending North Carolina State University. Three years of dating later, Mitchell knew he didn’t want to spend a second more of his life without Elizabeth and planned a surprise trip to Yosemite National Park to do what the two love most: hike. Certain this bucket-list location would be the perfect place to ask Elizabeth that all-important question, Mitchell led his bride-to-be on a 6-mile trek up to Eagle Peak, where two of their friends had made a heart out of pinecones. Elizabeth couldn’t help but say “yes.” As is the case for many couples, the COVID-19 pandemic drastically changed the course of their wedding day. Instead of a big gathering, they celebrated their love at the bride’s parents’ home in High Point, North Carolina, with immediate family and a few members of the bridal party. The highlight of the day was a surprise car parade of many friends, and a bridesmaid in her dress, with balloons and signs to welcome the couple into this next chapter. The two live in Raleigh, where Mitchell is a customer success manager for Even, and Elizabeth is a supplier relationship manager for IBM.
