If you enjoy the thought of a miniature dachshund being named after a NASCAR driver, just picture him running as fast as his little legs could go to help his dad, Jonathan, propose. Virginia couldn’t help but say yes to the question attached to Junior’s collar. Because this Raleigh couple can agree on just about anything but college teams, planning a traditional wedding was a breeze. The two were married at Virginia’s home church, West End Presbyterian, in a simple ceremony that showcased their love for God and each other. By reciting Virginia’s childhood prayer with their guests, the couple entered the next phase in their lives while honoring the shared values that brought them together.
