WE ARE GETTING MARRIED (:
One fall night in 2017, Katie was invited to a dinner with her pastor (Tom) and others to meet the guy (Billy) starting Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) on Wake Forest’s campus. Since Katie was deeply involved in Marshall Cru, she accepted the invitation to see how their church could encourage, contribute, and partner with WF Cru. Billy invited everyone to join their Bible Study for a night.
It turns out Tom and the others invited Katie to dinner to meet Billy - not just to learn more about Cru at Wake! Knowing that Bible Study would be good, and Billy was cute, Katie showed up at the Cru Bible Study with some delicious brownies. Billy must have liked the brownies! He and Katie found themselves talking in the chilly fall night long after everyone else had headed home.
A few weeks later Billy asked Katie to go on a date. Katie said yes, blushing with a huge smile. On their fourth date, Billy asked Katie to be his girlfriend and she excitedly said yes. Billy and Katie began to spend a lot of time together! They enjoyed being together - hiking, family vacations, talking so long that the brewery was shutting down around them, eating lots of ice cream, playing mini-golf, paddle boarding, and eating lots of really good food. On their six month anniversary, they went to Sixth and Vine (get it?) and with fast beating hearts, they declared their love for each other.
Then the best holiday, Labor Day, rolled around! Billy and Katie had the day off, so they spent the majority of the day together going to significant places: Miller Park (they walked there a good bit), dinner at Jeffrey Adams (where they went to dinner before Billy started his six week summer mission trip, Fiddlin' Fish (a brewery they frequented), ending in Quarry Park (a place they went on their fourth date, when they became “official”). At Quarry Park, a nervous Billy got down on one knee and asked an excited Katie to marry him! She said yes!
We are excited to start our life together and anxious to see what the Lord has in store for us as Mr. and Mrs. McCormick. We are thrilled to be able to share this special day with you!
