Kellyann and Chris had mutual friends, but they met the modern way — with a swipe right. The pair dated for over five years while living in New York City, where they would spend Fridays working together in their oasis in the big city, a little garden behind the High Line Hotel. After moving to Texas in 2020, Chris took Kellyann back to their NYC garden spot and got on down on one knee to propose.

Born and raised in the Sandhills, Kellyann couldn’t think of a better place to get married than the Weymouth Center. A classic palette of black, navy, and white completed the big day. Kellyann didn’t have bridesmaids, but she asked close friends and family to wear navy.

“The day was absolutely perfect — a dream come true,” Kellyann said. “We are so lucky to have had all of our family and friends in our sweet town of Southern Pines to celebrate.”
