Prestonwood Country Club Wedding | Sally + Hunter

The Meeting…
They went to high school together and all through high school they lived in the same neighborhood, but they never dated until after college. She went to NC State and is a HUGE wolfpack fan. He went to Appalachian State but is now more of a NC State fan.
He asked her out to dinner saying; “you could at least get a free meal out of it, a girls got to eat.” He told her it was going to be alot of friends from high school but little did she know it was more like a triple date. They ate dinner then went bowling. Keeping the ring her mom gave her in his pocket for her while she was bowling, he made sure she would have to see him again to get her ring back when he took the ring home.

The Proposal…
“I have been 150mph in a car, peppered sprayed, tazered, attacted by a police dog, busted in doors…. And I have never had my breath taken away like I did that night” he said…
He bought a sweater for Prissy, their little dog. Before dinner with both their families he had Sally go over to his house. When she arrived he asked her to have a seat; “me and prissy have a surprise for you” he said. He took Prissy upstairs to put the sweater on her and put the ring in the pocket of the sweater with a ribbon attached and let a little bit of it hang out of the pocket. When they came downstairs he put Prissy down and she ran up to Sally and jumped in her lap. Sally saw the ribbon and pulled it out with the ring hanging right in her face, eye level. She looked up to find Hunter on one knee, “she had the happiest look on her face that webster cannot define” he said. He asked her and she just shook her head YES!

“Toni! Chris! I am blown away by this brilliant video! It has taken me almost 20 minutes to wipe away the happy tears enough to reply. I am ecstatic. I am having trouble forming sentences right now because I am so excited haha I could never thank you enough. I love the song choice and I am so thankful you incorporated Amanda’s speech, that was such a special moment. I can’t wait for everyone to see this!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”…Sally

“Hunter and I heard the buzz around the triangle about this amazing videography company that just happened to be a husband and wife team. We were flirting with the idea of hiring a videographer but when I met with Chris and Toni in person, I was immediately convinced by their professionalism, talent, warm personalities, and unique creativity that just we could not pass up the opportunity to have them capture the most precious moments of our wedding day on video!! The measurable qualities of Heart Stone’s services, their responsiveness, reliability, timeliness, etc., far exceeded our expectations and could only be surpassed by the qualities of their work product that are UNmeasurable: they get to know your personalities, your love story, and they form a vision. Then take the moments that are captured and through their excellent editing skills and style, they reveal your love story in the most magical, amazing way. It will give you chills, leave you speechless, and cause you to laugh and cry happy tears at the same time!!
Heart Stone is simply the best at what they do. They do a great job at conveying a realistic idea of what to expect and then proceed to blow that out of the water with how amazing the end result is!! They are excellent people who have found a way to do what they love everyday and their passion is brilliantly obvious. I HIGHLY recommend Heart Stone!”…Sally, Bride
