Congratulations to our June Giveaway Winners!
We are so thrilled to announce the winners of our June giveaway to a wonderfully deserving couple! Maggie and Kyle have won a fantastic prize of a $2900 gift certificate to Rocky Top Catering and 1705 Prime, one of the most wonderful catering companies in the Triangle. The happy couple can use this towards any wedding celebration including rehearsals, showers or engagement parties!
Maggie and Kyle are engaged to be married next year at The Stockroom at 230. However, they are doing most of their wedding planning via video chat, as Kyle is currently serving our country in Iraq until September. “Trying to plan a wedding when you’re so far apart is difficult, but we make it work with good communication and lots of pictures,” says Maggie. However, choosing her wedding venue was the easiest part so far! “I had heard a lot about The Stockroom and had seen pictures, so decided to take a look. I immediately fell in love with the exposed brick on the inside and I knew that it was the right place for us. I sent Kyle pictures of the venue and he agreed that it was the perfect place for us to get married. ”
The couple met online (thank goodness for the power of technology!) Maggie says Kyle was kind and polite, so they decided to meet after almost a month of chatting. Maggie shared, “I brought my cousin along just to make sure I was safe, so my poor cousin had to be third wheel on our first date. When the night was over we both decided we’d like to see each other again the following day, but I was doing something with my church and my mother was going to be there. Him being the brave man that he is, he decided to come anyway and so the second time I’d ever seen him in person he met my mother!”
“Him living in Fayetteville and me living in Raleigh was challenging, but we saw each other on weekends and any time he got the day off he would drive the almost hour and a half just to come spend an hour with me on my lunch break and then drive all the way back. He’s pretty amazing.”
Just after their one year anniversary, Kyle and Maggie got the news that he would be deployed in January of this year. Kyle is in the 82nd Airborne, and should be home by mid-September, when Maggie and Kyle can continue to plan their dream wedding together! Congratulations to you both, and thank you for your service!
