Videographer: Bay Leaf Video Productions
Wedding Planner: Natasha Widmer, Pinehurst Resort
Golf-and-spa-filled vacations brought Cassidy’s family to Pinehurst, then her parents decided to retire to the area. After graduating from college, Cassidy followed her parents to the Sandhills. Mike moved to the area for his job as a sales manager at the Pine Needles and Mid Pines Golf Clubs, and the two eventually met on a dating app. “Thank goodness for technology,” Cassidy says.
In May 2020, Mike proposed after a round of golf on the 18th green of Mid Pines surrounded by their closest friends and family — in person and on Zoom. A year later, the couple married at the Pinehurst Resort. They skipped traditional events like the bouquet toss, so their guests could get right to dancing.
