S p r i n g / S u m m e r B R I D E 2 0 1 9 1 9 Local Weddings Ages: Dean is 31. Maggie is 32. Occupations: Both are nurses. How they met: In nursing school at the University of Louisville. Engage- ment story: "We were staying at a cabin in Asheville, North Carolina, with some friends for Maggie's 30th birthday," Dean says. "e whole group was trying to cook dinner at once and it was a disas- ter — pots were boiling over on the stove and then a fire erupted from the grill." Maggie says, "Everyone was running around looking for towels and fire extinguishers and Dean thought that seemed like the perfect time to pop the ques- tion." Number of wedding guests: 150. Ceremony: Caldwell Chapel. Reception: O'Shea's. Entertain- ment: Tsunami Samurai. Personal touches: Lego cake topper. e mink stole belonged to Maggie's great-grandmother and the couple thrift-shopped for almost all of the decor while travel-nursing in Colorado. First-dance song: "Sleep Walk" by Santo & Johnny, played by Tsunami Samurai. e day in three words: "Windy, relaxed, fun." Favorite part of the day: Dean says, "When the chapel doors opened and I saw Maggie for the first time." Maggie says, "Our first dance." One disagreement: "Dean really wanted a helicopter entrance," Maggie says. Really glad they: Hired a wedding coordinator for the weekend. Wish they would have: Hired a videogra- pher. Advice: "Make your wedding about you," Maggie says. "It sounds obvious, but I think sometimes people get caught up trying to do all the things that are expected and don't get to enjoy the day. We cut a lot of the traditional elements from our wedding reception and it really allowed us to spend time with our guests and each other."
