Our Story

Six years. That's how long we've been doing this thing called life together. 4 years dating, and almost 2 years married. That's crazy! I could recap our whole story, but that would take pages and hours. I could run through the highs and lows, but those are too many to name. Instead, I'm going to make it easy for you. I'm going to give you the best glimpse inside the romance of Emily and Brett in the shortest way possible. Without further ado, I give you the Top Ten Moments of Emily and Brett.

Ten. That day-trip to Biltmore, filled with romanticizing, sweet-talking, and engagement-photographing.

Nine. That road trip when Brett and Emily were headed to meet their families for a joint graduation trip to Disney, and Emily finally got to hear Brett sing along with the radio.

Eight. That sick day when Brett brought Emily multiple animated movies, a smiley face balloon, cooked mashed potatoes and macaroni, and slept on the sofa in her college apartment to take care of her.

Seven. That Valentine's Day when Emily expected to spend the day solo with her bedhead and PJ's, only to have Brett surprise her with a visit.

Six. That moment when Brett was returning home after visiting Emily in Kernersville for the weekend, and left only to return 45 minutes later just to be able to spend 30 more minutes with her.

Five. That night when Brett and Emily picked up her favorite meal and ate standing at the island in the kitchen of their very first home.

Four. That perfect day when Emily and Brett went to a diner, a fancy restaurant, a farmers market, two college campuses, and five breweries.

Three. That phone call when Brett asked Emily's mom just how allergic she was to cats, only to show up at her school with what would soon become the third member of their family.

Two. That Sunday morning gift of a coffee mug that told Brett and Emily that they were about to be an aunt and uncle.

One. Those sweet words and that one kiss in front of the dearest friends and family, where nothing changed, and everything changed.

Wedding Party

The Craziest Guys in the World


You know the groomsmen are something special when the bride knows them just as well as the groom. These guys mean a ton to BOTH of us, and we couldn't be more thankful for them.

The Best Girls Ever


From childhood neighbors to college roommates, I was surrounded by the greatest of girls on my big day. Each one has played such a vital role in my life, and I couldn't love them more!


Blowing Rock

You can't beat staying in downtown Blowing Rock. My favorite part of the high country, every nook and cranny of this place is picturesque. So many bed and breakfasts to chose from!

The Mast Farm Inn

If you really want a mountain feel, you can't beat the Mast Farm Inn. Located in the breathtaking Valle Crucis, you're surrounded by the cutest of towns and a 10 minute drive to downtown Boone.


Boone is a GREAT place to visit! While there are loads of hotels to rent out, I recommend looking for a home or cabin through VRBO or AirBnB, because there is nothing like getting the small-town mountain feel in a place like that.
