Charlotte Blind Date
Cue the lights, here’s their love story. Curt and Lindsey were set up on a blind date in Charlotte, NC by their families on July 5, 2015. Lindsey’s Aunt and Curt’s cousin had been planning for several weeks for the two to meet but her Aunt was hesitant since Lindsey had just purchased her first home. Lindsey knew a lot of his family, but never had met Curt. Little did they know, the soon-to-be couple grew up less than five miles apart.
For the next few months, Curt planned the best dates – baseball games, football games and dinners at delicious restaurants in Charlotte. But Lindsey knew things were getting even more serious when Curt invited her to tag along for a short work trip to New York City after Christmas.
A Special Man
Lindsey’s Paw-Paw had become very sick in late summer 2015. Curt did not have the chance to meet Paw-Paw; however, the night he went to be with the Lord, Curt was there to comfort her family at the hospital in Charlotte. Lindsey knew this was a special man when he led Lindsey and her grandma in a sincere prayer during this difficult time. Lindsey’s other grandma, known as Nana, was battling lung cancer, and her health was declining quickly. During Nana’s last few days, Curt told her to rest assured that her granddaughter would always be in good hands. Because of these special moments, Lindsey knew that the Lord had brought this man into her life for a reason.
She Said Yes
Now for the really good stuff… How he proposed. Near the end of July, Curt told Lindsey that he wanted to take her on a short vacation before the start of the school year. Neither of them had ever been to Southport so Lindsey started planning! Little did she know that Curt was also planning as well!
Because of the busy weekends, they decided to go at the beginning of the week to explore the quaint coastal town and beach. Lindsey could not wait to eat at the areas highest rated restaurant, Provisions, on Sunday evening. Curt casually suggested to walk down by the pier.
As they were walking, he starts explaining that he had visited her mom and grandma on Friday to ask them an important question… for her hand in marriage!
After Lindsey told her family and close friends the news, Curt told her that the ring was engraved with Nana’s favorite verse in Psalm 118 “this is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.
The Wedding Day
They got married at their home church and had their reception with us at A Place in the Vineyard, a vineyard venue near Charlotte, on August 5, 2017. She chose colors of blush pink, navy and gold and had super tall and gorgeous centerpieces on the tables to add height to the vaulted ceilings. Speaking of ceilings, we now offer drapes inside the reception hall. She was one of our first to use them and they looked gorgeous!
