Brittany and Justin met in 2008 while working at Circuit City. Brittany had a crush on Justin. He was a supervisor and dating employees was not allowed, so they kept their relationship a secret from co- workers for about 5 months (until Circuit City closed). They were together for 8 years, and their wedding day was on their 8 year “dating” anniversary. In those 8 years Brittany and Justin moved from Gastonia to West Palm Beach Florida, and back to Gastonia, where they bought their first home. They became best friends- which is their favorite thing about their relationship. Brittany and Justin have two adorable dogs who are their kids.
Where/When was your wedding? September 10, 2016 at The Gingerbread Meeting House in Shelby, NC.
Where did you get engaged? Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens
Where did you honeymoon? We had a staycation because we did not want to leave our dogs. We used honeymoon money to buy a fence for our sweet pups!
What was your first dance song? Hold You in My Arms- Ray Lamontagne
What was your favorite aspect of your wedding day? It had to be our ceremony music and our UNC Chapel Hill theme. Every bit of music was specifically picked out by us. It was mostly Dave Matthews Band and Incubus – our favorite bands. We are HUGE Carolina fans so our tiniest touches of UNC in our wedding were amazing.
What is your favorite date night? Our favorite date night is honestly cooking dinner at home and playing with our dogs.
Do you have an advice for brides to be? My advice for brides to be is to not sweat the small stuff. I worried way too much about our guests enjoying the wedding. Remember it’s YOUR day! Do what you want and don’t worry about what other people think. In the end what other people think will not matter!
Do you have any advice for grooms to-be? Let the Bride do what she wants. Happy wife, happy life! LOL
