Wouldn’t it be really cool to say that you were the first couple to get married at a historic home since the 1800’s? Well, thats exactly what Andy and Maranda can say, as they are the first to get married at The Old Stone House in Granite Quarry, NC since a descendant of the founding family married there in the 1800’s.
I love when I have the privilege of meeting and working with any of my clients, but sometimes you just immediately know you’re going to get along really well with someone, and these guys are just that.
I met Andy for the first time at the couple’s engagement session at New Sarum Brewing in Salisbury, which Andy co-owns and is the brewmaster for. Not only could I tell he possesses a deep love for beer, friends, and Seattle grunge, but none of it compares to his love for Maranda. They compliment each other so very well, and it’s apparent that the community in Salisbury loves these two. As we walked the streets of downtown Salisbury, folks were stopping Andy, and people at different restaurants would yell out, “What’s up guys?!”
These two have left and will continue to leave a mark on their community. So, if you’re in Salisbury, be sure to stop in at New Sarum Brewing’s tap house. I’m sure there’s a good chance you’ll find Andy in the taproom talking brewing techniques or music, and you’ll definitely find a tasty beer that you’ll love.
The venue choices for the big day suited these two so well. A warm, quaint ceremony in the front lawn of The Old Stone House (New Sarum’s IPA is actually named after the house), followed by a reception at the beautiful NC Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC. Two local venues that have played a huge part of writing the history of the area. Now, Andy & Maranda are receiving that baton, as they continue to write the story of their community one conversation, one pour, one customer, and one relationship at at time!
So, without further adieu, please enjoy Andy & Maranda’s historic-vintage NC wedding!
