Lindsey and Tanner are proud to say they are middle school sweethearts! They met in middle school when Lindsey went to a friend’s basketball game and Tanner was on the team. They were briefly introduced and it was awkward, as is everything in middle school. Tanner got her AOL instant messenger user name and they started chatting online and calling each other daily. They continued to grow closer and closer through high school and college, and somewhere along their journey, they fell in love.
Tanner planned the most perfect proposal which consisted of a scavenger hunt around Lindsey’s favorite spots at UNC (her alma mater), leading to him proposing at the Old Well.
Since they were having their reception at Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden, the couple had an “elegant garden party” theme in mind. They had tons of flowers that reflected the colors in the gardens. They also had a laurel wreath on their invitations, and for favors, they gave out seed packets displayed in a tiny wheelbarrow that were stamped with their laurel wreath logo.
