Revolution Mill Events: Missy and Aaron


Missy and Aaron were married on August 25, 2018 at The Colonnade at Revolution Mill. It was a gorgeous, sunny day in Greensboro, and everything perfectly captured their love story.


The Backstory

“We met at Northern Elementary School on my first day to work in ACES. A month later, he asked for my BBM (for Blackberry phones) to start talking to me. We texted each other every day all day long. He would constantly keep me laughing and keep a smile on my face. Later on, we started dating (for 7 years), and then he finally popped the question. I coach two cheerleading teams so he got my JV & a few of Varsity to come to my middle school cheer practice and do this awesome cheer to lead up to the proposal. After the cheer was finished, they told me to meet him at the place we first met (the Elementary School). So I drove to the school immediately after my middle school practice because I was so excited for what was about to happen. Once I got there, my old ACES boss gave me my first clue. He had planned a scavenger hunt around the school of memorable moments we had together in ACES. At the very last clue, I came outside to see him standing there, then got down on his knee and proposed. To say the least, I was very excited, and am still very excited!”

Food and Drink

The guests sipped cocktail hour drinks while enjoying a cheese display garnished with fresh fruit alongside assorted crackers.

Dinner began with a classic Caesar salad. Then guests savored a buffet of grilled Italian chicken; sage-rubbed pepper pork loin served with stone fruit and smoked bacon sauce; fresh green beans; and zucchini, yellow squash and onion mix.

The menu was completed with Pepper Moon’s famous smashed potato bar. Missy said it was “the best!”.

Décor & Planning

The couple chose black, burgundy, gold, dark purple and lavender as the colors for their indoor ceremony and reception. They made their own centerpieces by spray painting wine bottles gold to put flowers in.

Missy’s advice to new bride’s? — “Don’t worry about the guests, it’s YOUR wedding, just the two of you. If they love you enough they will make it to your wedding. Don’t plan stuff around them.”

The Venue

Missy said she loved the “warehouse feels” that The Colonnade has and wanted that for her wedding. She also appreciated the fact that we “were always fast to answer any questions” the couple had.
