These two couldn't be any sweeter. Having met at Elon University, Jonathan surprised Anna with a proposal during Elon's Homecoming weekend.
Being that both ceremony and reception were outside at the Duke, Anna wanted to embrace the surrounding gardens at the Duke Mansion by incorporating magnolias into her design. Because weather was a concern, Anna and Jonathan decided to take part in an old wives' tale by burying a bottle of bourbon upside-down at the wedding venue weeks before the wedding. On wedding day (a gorgeous, sunny day I may add), Anna and Jonathan dug the bottle back up and maaaaaay have taken a sip. Or two.
