Crossed Paths

Chris and Julie met briefly at Motorco and then at Fullsteam in summer 2015, bonding over a conversation about Spain. Then, after a chance meeting at RDU in December, the pair went on their first official date.

The Proposal

One May evening, as the couple relaxed in their backyard hammock, Chris “popped up and said he’d be right back,” Julie explains. “A few minutes later he walked out of the house carrying a guitar case and a small cooler.” Chris began to play “No Place Like the Right Time” by Donna the Buffalo. He changed a line to “Julie Grundy, will you marry me?” and took a ring out of his case. The couple celebrated with champagne from Hope Valley Wine & Beverage (hence, the cooler) that night and with friends the next day at Ponysaurus Brewing Co.

Now, “I Do”

The wedding and reception – featuring music by Counterclockwise String Band and DJ PlayPlay – will take place at Belt Line Station.
