Jennifer + Rocky | Fearrington Village Wedding

♥ A Military Themed Affair

The Meeting…
They met at a little beach bar in Emerald Isle on the Fourth of July weekend, 2010. Rocky was dressed in work clothes and heavy boots, as he had spent the day helping a friend move, and Jennifer had plans to just briefly stop by to see a band she had hired for a previous engagement for her work. What started out for both of them as a brief stop, turned into an evening of conversation and dancing.

The Proposal…
Rocky is an active-duty Marine and used a bomb disposal robot to surprise Jennifer at work with a ring. He then walked in behind the robot in Dress Blues to propose. Jennifer’s friends and family were in attendance.

The Details…
The wedding was and Ivory & Wine military-themed affair. The groom’s cake was an old fashioned bomb, as Rocky is a technician on the bomb squad. There was a hall of swords when the bride and groom departed the ceremony. The Barn at Fearrington, with its combination of rural ambiance and classy atmosphere are complimentary to Rocky’s Montana life mixed with Jennifer’s Chapel Hill upbringing. The barn was outfitted with beautiful linens and lighting on the ceiling which created a romantic setting.
