Ben and Kaitlin met on August 10, 2014 with help from Match.com. Their first date was at the Cheesecake Factory at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC. They both had a great time on this date and extended it to go see a movie. Turns out, Ben did not like the movie Kaitlin picked but sat through it to spend a little more time with her. After this first date, Kaitlin and Ben played the millennial texting game for a few weeks, trying to play it cool and not seem too eager. In fact, they played this game so well that both thought the other one was not interested! Kaitlin decided to take a chance Labor Day weekend and reach out to Ben again and say she wanted to hang out a second time. Since then, neither one has looked back! After a few years of dating, Kaitlin and Ben took a trip to Nashville, TN where he proposed!
Kaitlin grew up in Oxford, NC, and she had always known she wanted to get married in her hometown. Carlee Farm was the perfect venue for Ben and Kaitlin’s big day! It had a large, open-air barn with beautiful farm tables and a gorgeous outdoor ceremony space! Kaitlin and Ben married each other in a beautiful clearing surrounded by woods. The sky was overcast, and as soon as Kaitlin started walking down the aisle, the bottom fell out of the clouds, and the rain poured for the rest of the ceremony! Several people mentioned afterward how they thought it must have been a sign that Kaitlin’s dad, who passed away a few years ago, was with her as she walked down the aisle.
Kaitlin and Ben were so sweet and easy-going. The rain did not upset them in the slightest! Their barn reception included talented music from an awesome band, lots of dancing, a super adorable photo booth camper, and some fantastic food! It was such a fun and relaxing wedding. We are so happy for these two, and we loved the story their wedding video tells!
