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 >

How did you and your partner meet?

We were both new to Winston-Salem and did not know anyone in town. After multiple attempts, Dina was finally able to persuade Diane to come over... Full Post >

Jason and I met through mutual friends at a restaurant/bar in Knightdale, NC. Much to my surprise, our friends had arranged for us to meet that night and Jason knew about me. I was oblivious to our friends' plan and thought it was just another night out. I guess you could say it was a "partial... Full Post >

Leigh & Rock

Leigh and Rock tied the knot on August 19, 2014. They had their ceremony and reception at Fearrington's Garden Terrace! How did you and Rock meet? Rock and I communicated on Match.com for a couple weeks before we decided to meet at a local pub in Rocky River, Ohio on April 17, 2011.
