Our love story began over ten years ago when Kyle and Lisa met at Elon University in 2006. They lived next door to each other while attending Elon and became the best of friends over the years. It wasn’t until 2012 when Kyle moved to Charlotte to complete his residency that they realized their bond was unbreakable. Flash-forward to 2016; Kyle popped the question in Savannah, Georgia at the Eliza Thompson House on New Year’s Day (how romantic!).
The love-dove’s tied the knot on April 22, 2017 at the beautiful Club at Longview, where they shared their first dance to the sweet tune of “I won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz. Lisa’s favorite aspect of their wedding day was a tie; having her Dad walk her down the aisle, and listening to the speeches her Dad and sisters gave. As for Kyle and his favorite part, “it was waiting for her to come down the aisle” (*queues* “AWWW!). Their advice to brides and grooms-to-be is to try to be present because it goes by so fast! Also, take care of the small details early so you can enjoy the big day.
The two honeymooned in romantic Italia, where they explored the breathtaking views of Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre and Rome. We know- could it be anymore perfect?! The newlyweds are now settling into married life, and as for date night you will typically find them grabbing a drink at Broken Spoke and heading to CO for dinner.
Congratulations, Lisa and Kyle! We wish you many years of fun, laughter, and of course love!
“You can’t stop us on the road to freedom
You can’t stop us ’cause our eyes can see
Men with insight, men in granite
Knights in armor intent on chivalry
She’s as sweet as Tupelo honey
She’s an angel of the first degree
She’s as sweet as Tupelo honey”
These high school sweethearts have been in love since the 11th grade. Even then, Kayla knew he was “THE ONE.” They were together seven years before they tied the knot, Kayla and Cody said their “I do’s” at the stunning Gingerbread Meeting House on June 7th, 2015 with our Poffie Bride looking stunning in her Essense of Australia wedding gown. This amazing couple shared their first dance to “Tupelo Honey” by Van Morrison.
The newlyweds honeymooned in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, which Kayla said was “fabulous!” Kayla and Cody have been together almost two years now, and said their favorite date night is “staying home, relaxing and enjoying each other’s company.”
Kayla’s favorite aspect of the wedding was “getting to marry her best friend in front of family and close friends.” Her advice for brides-to-be: “is not to stress because, everything comes together in the end.” Now for the grooms-to-be, she says “ plan an awesome honeymoon, because it will be your favorite part!”

You never know what great friendships lead to, for Angela and Mark their friendship blossomed into a fiery love story. Angela currently works as a Registered Nurse at Caromont Regional Medical Center. Mark has been a fireman for over 26 years and is currently the Deputy Chief of the Gastonia Fire Department.
The couple met in a place most people wouldn’t expect to find a significant other – the gym. While pumping iron, Mark couldn’t take his eyes off of Angela’s smile, and after building a strong friendship over the years their friendship slowly turned into romance.
Angela went on to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C., and little did she know Mark had planned a big surprise for the ending of the race. As soon as she crossed the finish line Mark was waiting for her down on one knee. Her parents were also there holding a banner that read “Angela, will you marry me?”, talk about a great ending to a marathon!
Angela and Mark were married at the ever-so-gorgeous Woodmill Winery in Vale, North Carolina. Surrounded by friends and family, the couple had their first dance to Alan Jackson’s “Red on a Rose”. Angela says that her favorite aspect of the entire wedding was seeing the look on her groom’s face as she walked down the aisle.
Thinking back on the big day, Angela is very thankful that she and Mark took a step back from the party to soak everything in together. Instead of getting wrapped up in making sure everyone else is happy, it is important to remember that the wedding is about the bride and groom. Her advice to brides-to-be is to take a few moments during the reception to step away from the crowd and relish the fact that you and the love of your life are finally married. As for advice for grooms-to-be, Mark says it is vital to always treat your woman like a lady, whether it is day or night and to always put her needs ahead of yours (*currently swooning*)(also, take notes fellas).
Following the wedding the couple honeymooned in the mountains in Boone, NC, where they enjoyed a few peaceful days in a secluded cabin surrounded by nature. The busy newlyweds find themselves always on-the-go, so when they find time their favorite dates typically include something outdoorsy and active. One of their favorite places to go is the Whitewater Center when they have events like River Jam. Angela and Mark live a fast-paced, active lifestyle – we can only dream of keeping up with this power couple!
Meagen and Garrett’s love story began in March of 2015, when fate put them in each other’s path. They met through mutual friends during the March Madness Tournament at All American Pub in Charlotte. The soon-to-be couple laughed and bonded over a popular online dating site that they both happened to be on. Upon the instant connection, Garrett asked for her number and a invited Meagen to the Hornet’s game for the following week (smart man!), and the rest is history. The sport-loving newlyweds now enjoy hanging out in NoDa and catching any sporting event happening in their area.
As for popping the question, Meagen said Garrett was acting strange because he was sweating and it wasn’t even hot out, only to discover he had attached her ring to the collar of their cat. How sweet is that?!
Meagen and Garrett said “I do” on March 25th, 2017 at the beautiful Alexander Homestead, where they shared their first dance to Elvis Pressley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love with you.” Next month they will head to the Bahamas on a cruise for their honeymoon (we’re totally jealous!).
Meagen’s advice to brides-to-be is “once you make a decision, just go with it and don’t let anyone tell you different. Let the groom have a say, and include things that are important to him.”
