Pelumi and Gabriel’s NC Mountain Wedding at Overlook Barn
When Pelumi and Gabriel met at a birthday party of a mutual friend’s mother, they hit it off immediately and began dating after a month. A year later, Gabriel secretly invited their friends to fly to Miami and meet them at a rooftop restaurant for an intimate and surprising proposal to Pelumi.
On Aug. 30, 2019, the bride walked down the aisle and saw all of her friends and family gathered to celebrate.
“I started balling ugly tears and I am not a public crier,” Pelumi says.
Pelumi knew she wanted to get married surrounded by mountain views and found Overlook Barn in Banner Elk to be the perfect fit. “The team at Overlook Barn were fantastic,” Pelumi says.

They also created their very own wedding hashtag #PGLOVE19.
The wedding theme highlighted lots of greenery with a splash of muted colors through mountain views coupled with white, green, and pink flowers.
