Parker (Steen) and Conner Graves began their journey two years ago in Nashville, TN. Parker was in cosmetology school at Aveda Institute and Conner was working a full-time job. The pair met at a Drake concert. Parker had box seats and while she was grabbing drinks ran into Phil Sadler, a mutual friend of the couple. “I invited them to the box with us, and not even ten minutes later, I was hitting it off with Conner,” says Parker.

A year and a half later, the couple had a beautiful baby girl, Sloan Graves. Conner proposed first thing in the morning. “He got down on one knee before I was even out of bed!” says Parker.

The couple knew they were going to have a huge guest list, and they wanted a beautiful venue. Highland Stables fit all of their requirements. “We loved everything about it,” says Parker. They were married on September 22, 2018.
