Janie and Warren have been dating since their senior years of high school where they met in Raleigh, NC. Warren proposed at Janie's favorite park (also a personal favorite of mine!), Pullen Park in Raleigh in May of last year, asking her if she would be "friends forever" with him. Janie recently graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and Warren from NCSU and the couple plan to live in Chapel Hill together following their honeymoon (the location of which Warren was able to keep a surprise from Janie!). The two hope to join the Peace Corps in Southeast Asia next summer.
The day started out with a Brunch on the front lawn of the High Hampton Inn where the bride's cousins serenaded the groom and guests!
