History

Alexis and Brock bought an abandoned 1930s sawmill in Whittier in the summer of 2018 and have renovated the building to open a new event venue. The building captured their hearts when they first laid eyes on the oversized barn doors, gorgeous timber-frame ceilings and hardwood floors. These are the exact features that they wanted to highlight in the new venue.

Location

The Parker Mill is conveniently located just off Highway 74 between Sylva and Cherokee and is embedded in national forest parks.

    Bridal Portraits

    Incredibly nice, down-to-earth couple that run the venue! He drove us way up a mountain to have a gorgeous Mountain View for a few of my bridal portraits.

    Beautiful venue!

    The Parker mill checked all the boxes on my daughter’s wishlist for her fairytale wedding. Alexis, Brock and Connie were so helpful and gracious with any and every detail we needed help with! Our guests were in awe of the beauty to be found everywhere at this serene mountaintop venue! Couldn’t have been happier with our choice to choose The Parker Mill for my daughter’s wedding!
