Chapel Hill native Scott Anderson met Caroline Blair of Trinity, N.C., in 2011 and the couple soon began to date. At his family’s Christmas party in 2014, Scott enlisted the help of his brother (and future best man) Will Anderson to pull off the proposal. Will gathered the Blair and Anderson families to take a group photo and just as Will counted to three, Scott took to one knee and asked the unsuspecting Caroline to marry him. The video of the engagement has tens of thousands of hits on YouTube.
The wedding weekend took place at Childress Vineyards in Lexington, N.C. with the rehearsal dinner hosted by John and Leigh Anderson, and reception hosted by Ed and Patricia Blair. After the ceremony, the hundreds of guests were surprised by elaborate choreography starting with Caroline and her father’s dance and wrapping up with Caroline and Scott dancing to classics such as “The Time of My Life” from “Dirty Dancing.” Partygoers told Caroline and Scott theirs was one of the best weddings they had ever been to.
The couple resides in Durham.
