Marcy and Jason will be married at the Cliffs of Glassy at the end of October. The chapel sits at the very top of the Glassy community, and the views are breathtaking. You can see both North and South Carolina, and I know with the fall leaves it will be spectacular! Marcy and Jason dated for two years before getting engaged, and they are very ready to be husband and wife! I am so happy for them, and I can’t wait to be a part of their very special day. Read more about Marcy and Jason below…
How did you meet each other?
We met through our mutual friend in Raleigh, NC a year before we began dating. Our first official date took place in Atlanta when Marcy was in town visiting her brother and we have been inseparable ever since. Jason moved from Atlanta to Raleigh in 2007 so we could be together.
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
We were engaged on December 27, 2008. Jason had an elaborate engagement planned including a scavenger hunt incorporating all of Marcy’s favorite things. Unfortunately, Jason had to postpone the plans when Marcy came home late but kept the dinner reservation. Jason forgot to tell the restaurant that we would not be celebrating our engagement and the waiter came over with champagne and congratulated us….but we weren’t engaged! Jason proposed right after dinner in park in downtown Raleigh.
What do you two do for a living?
Jason is a Lead Engineer for Progress Energy in Raleigh, NC.
Marcy is a Marketing Director for American Valve…the family business.
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
We love to travel and are always planning our next big trip. We are really looking forward to our trip to Italy and Greece in the spring. We also enjoy running, biking, golfing and hiking.
Why did you choose the Cliffs Glassy as your wedding location?
When we first began dating, Jason lived in Atlanta and Marcy lived in Raleigh. Marcy’s parent’s house at the Cliffs at Glassy was the perfect meeting spot for us while we were dating long-distance. We fell in love during our trips to Glassy so we thought it was the perfect place for the wedding.
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
We are so excited about starting the next chapter of our life together in such a beautiful place. We are also thrilled that so many of our family and friends can make the trip to SC for the wedding.
What do you love about each other?
Marcy: What I love about Jason is…
Jason is honest, kind, loving and compassionate. He has a great sense of humor and a positive outlook on life. He can finish my sentences…and somehow always know what I was going to say. I love that he doesn’t take life too seriously and can always make me laugh. He brings out the best in me.
Jason: What I love about Marcy is…
I love that Marcy is kind, caring and always thinks of others first. I love that she has so much passion for life. I love the fact that areas where I am weak, she is strong, that although she is the opposite of me in so many ways, that she also complements me. I love that way she challenges me and keeps me on my toes. I also love her multiple little quirks, the way her eyes crinkle when she smiles, her inability to whistle, her offbeat sense of humor, everything that make her who she is!
Anything else you would want people to know?
We were not happy when we first found out the only date the Glassy Chapel was available was Halloween. However, we grew to love the idea of a Halloween wedding (it is one of our favorite holidays) and will never forget our anniversary!
