Cate and Grant, both physical therapists, met on Cate’s first day of work in the rehabilitation department at the University of North Carolina’s hospital when Grant stood up to shake her hand. Now, their physical therapy careers have taken the pair to separate jobs, but they’ll forever be grateful for their serendipitous meeting at UNC.

Throughout their relationship, Cate had been asking Grant to go on a picnic. When they finally did, Grant got down on one knee and proposed to Cate in Weymouth’s gardens. Fifteen months later, the pair wed at the church Cate grew up in, Emmanuel Episcopal Church, before heading to their dream reception at Pinehurst’s Fair Barn.
