Wedding Date July 19, 2020

Occupations Caroline is an assistant research practice manager at Duke University School of Nursing, and Eric works as a senior software developer at GK Software.

Crossed Paths Caroline grew up in Chapel Hill; Eric, in Garner. Caroline and Eric had their first date in 2018 at Bean Traders after connecting through a mutual friend.

The Proposal Eric proposed to Caroline during a round of the couple’s favorite board game in January 2020. Eric asked permission to move Caroline’s pawn during the first round of the game; while doing so, he surprised her by slipping a ring on top of it and asking her to marry him.

The Big Day The couple’s wedding took place at a private residence in Raleigh. Though small, the celebration far exceeded the couple’s expectations. Cathy Anna Events planned the day and supplied the flowers, bringing a romantic garden theme to life. Caroline and Eric shared their day with friends and family including maid of honor Megan Arthur, bridesmaids Jenna Bishop and Jennifer Hamm, best man Miguel Santiago, and groomsmen Geoffrey Bishop and Brian McEachernTodd Moody Entertainment kept guests entertained throughout the evening.

Favorite Detail “All the decorations came together and accentuated the natural beauty of the home we were married in,” Caroline says. “The backyard … was in the shape of a heart and full of lush vegetation and beautiful flowers, which made for some really memorable photos.”

Favorite Moment “The moment I’ll remember forever is when I saw Caroline for the first look in her wedding gown,” Eric says.
