Meant to Bee

Mac Emmons + Jared Watkins | Jun 10, 2017

Mac and Jared met through an online dating site where they came across each other after a few months of searching. Mac was living in Charlotte and decided to expand his search outside of the Queen City. It was then that he came across Jared’s profile and was immediately drawn to his adorable smile. A casual message led to hours on the phone and eventually led to a relationship that blossomed quickly. Within the month, Mac had moved to Winston-Salem and he and Jared were happily on their way to starting their lives together!

Jared and Mac had a gorgeous June wedding at the beautiful Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. Both are beekeepers and their shared passion was a huge inspiration for their wedding. The couple wanted a tropical theme, full of bright colors with bee details. They knew the Garden and its gorgeous grounds would be the perfect location for their big day! Bright cerulean blue and cheerful orange perfectly represented the joyful union and the tropical floral arrangements were the perfect pop of happy color to match the fun and special day. Surrounded by loved ones, two soulmates became one and Mac and Jared truly had the best day of their lives!
