Wedding Date April 16, 2022

Occupations Meeghan is the assistant director of athletics for compliance at her alma mater, Duke University. Jordan works in human resources as the director of program management for UnitedHealth Group.

Crossed Paths The two were briefly introduced by mutual friends at Ponysaurus Brewing Co. and later bumped into each other in line for a Dolly Parton-themed show at The Pinhook. “We had a very Durham ‘meet cute’ and are incredibly lucky that two of our friends were brave enough to set us up!” Meeghan says. Their 5-hour-long first date included stops at Juju and Local 22 Kitchen & Bar.

The Proposal

The two brides stand together at the altar, holding bouquets with white flowers.

The pair discussed marriage and chose rings together at Hamilton Hill, which were to arrive in September. Jordan had an engagement plan in the works, but Meeghan asked the jeweler for a secret heads up when the rings arrived and surprised Jordan with a proposal in their backyard on Aug. 24, 2021. “[My] family already planned to visit that weekend, so Meeghan seized the perfect opportunity so that we could all celebrate together in Durham,” Jordan says. A few weeks later, Jordan popped the same question in the Ford family’s garden in Meeghan’s native New Hampshire.

The Big Day

After welcome drinks at Bull McCabe’s and a family dinner at Mateo Bar de Tapas, Jordan and Meeghan tied the knot at The Rickhouse. The couple decorated the warehouse space with help from Get Lit Event Lighting along with signage by Kaitlyn Purdy and floral arrangements from Blossom and Bone Florals. Posh the Salon styled both brides’ hair and makeup. The couple incorporated their shared love of food and wine with table assignments inspired by grape varietals and signature cocktails – a “Bull Old Fashioned” and an “Ellarita,” named after their dog, Ella. Guests stayed a few blocks away at The Durham Hotel.
