Maria & Dave

Maria and Dave tied the knot on November 15, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? Dave and I met in 2011, when we were both working for the same big law firm in New York City. Dave shared an office with a dear friend of mine. I would visit her periodically, and for the first 3 months of those visits, I completely ignored Dave. With time, though started to realize how charming... Full Post >

Kara & John-Marcus

Kara and John-Marcus tied the knot on October 4, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" under the Willow Oaks, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. 1. How did you and your partner meet? It's actually a funny story. We met at a party in Atlanta...twice. I met John-Marcus shortly after I graduated from college and moved from Massachusetts. During our conversation at this party, he promised to help me find a great apartment, so he asked for my email address and sent me a... Full Post >

Karri & Eric

Karri and Eric tied the knot on July 5, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" in the Crabapple Gardens and danced the night away at the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? After years of living 10 blocks apart from each other in New York City, it only took one day to meet through Match.com. Eric was encouraged by his sister to sign up after she met her husband through Match.com, and I was encouraged by my dad who was concerned about the quality of men lingering in... Full Post >

Megan & Michael

Megan and Michael tied the knot on June 21, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at the Garden Terrace, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? We grew up together. His mom has worked for my dad for almost 20 years, and one summer Michael and I were both working for him as well. He was in the IT department, so when my phone broke one afternoon, he was the one who came to fix it. We started talking a lot more and I would purposely break... Full Post >

The Extra Mile

Last week I unexpectedly got a fancy new phone with all the kinds of fancy new bells and whistles that come with fancy new phones. When I finally had a chance to look at it after the weekend, I found an app called “Health” that apparently tracks how many steps you take in a day. I had often wondered what a typical wedding day adds up to with the walking (or running) here and there . . . I am somewhat amazed to report that I covered almost 15 miles on Saturday! That’s more than a... Full Post >

Caroline & Dan

Caroline and I met each other during our sophomore year at UNC-Chapel Hill. Although we both lived in the same residence hall, we first met each other at a meeting for our study abroad program - we both studied abroad in Germany during our Spring semester. After seeing Caroline a few times, I... Full Post >

Sunset Hues for Fall

I think that fall weddings can be lush and romantic – without having to be kitschy or overly theme-y. Brides are not limited to pumpkins filled with orange and red flowers. Softer, more romantic, antique tones work beautifully for autumn events. Think of sunset hues. Seasonal foliage, softer greens, blush, peach, butter yellow, gold - can be just as seasonally appropriate as the bolder traditional tones. Full Post >

Casey & Clay

Casey and Clay tied the knot on September 6, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at beautiful offsite church in Chapel Hill, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? As new students at UNC-Chapel Hill we had a lot of mutual friends, but our paths never crossed (though Clay claims he noticed me several times at the Rams Head dining hall). We were officially introduced at the end of our sophomore year, but I left soon after to study... Full Post >

Tipton & Eric

Tipton and Eric tied the knot on July 12, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" under the Crab Apples, and danced the night away at the Fearrington Barn. How did you and Eric meet? We met in 2011 in Orlando, Florida. At the time, Eric was working for the Orlando Magic, and I was a sixth grade math teacher in Orlando. Once we met and began talking, we immediately realized we had something in common: we were both from North Carolina! I admitted that I wanted to move back there... Full Post >
