The couple
After Brandon and Emily met through mutual friends on a softball team, they were engaged two years later. Brandon used Emily’s favorite guilty pleasure, Chick-fil-A, to pop the question.

The details
SQN Events and Studio AG turned the hotel’s Great Room into a pink, white and gray wonderland. Fig Media packed the dance floor.

The party
Brandon and Emily, a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill graduate, shared their first dance to “Crazy Love” performed by the UNC Clef Hangers.
