Wilmington Wedding | Jamie + Mike

The Meeting…
She was living in Raleigh and was invited to attend a wedding in Wilmington with a friend, Mark. Mark told her that he wanted her to meet his friend, Mike Brown. Upon entering the church (Saint James) they were seated for the wedding and Mark leaned over and said, “Look down our pew, that’s Mike Brown.” She remembered leaning over and seeing him and thinking, “Oh. Ok!” Later at the reception they were formally introduced and ended up partying the night away. They all left the reception and went out to beach bars together. Mike and her even hung out the next day at his aunt and uncle’s house where the reception had been. Needless to say, she stole his heart that weekend and as she drove back to Raleigh on Sunday she wondered if she’d ever hear from him again. He called on Tuesday to ask her out ūüôā
The proposal…
It was Memorial Day weekend 2012. They jumpstarted the summer by heading to the beach. They went out on the boat and Mike called her over to his side of the boat, he began proposing and she had to stop and ask him if this was really happening! She remembers nothing except a big “YES!,” a happy boy, a happy girl, and a beautiful ring. To top it off their 2 dogs (Banks and Boguey) were on the boat with them! Mike even had champagne hidden on the boat to celebrate with.

“Chris and Toni,¬†Words cannot express the joy and happiness Mike and I just had watching that!! I am so glad we were both home so we could watch it together! It’s perfect and I could never say “Thank You” enough!!! I can’t stop watching it! :)”...Jamie, Bride
