Chapel Hill native Annie Hogan met Steven Lahti in physics class just before their senior year at Duke University. However, it wasn’t until the end of that year that they began dating after they were reacquainted by mutual friends at a Lupe Fiasco concert.
After six years of dating, Annie suspected a proposal was coming when Steven took her on a surprise trip to the Homestead Resort after finishing one of her medical school clinical rotations. They enjoyed a day of falconry, hiking and a delicious meal before Steven took her outside by the bonfire where he got down on one knee. After saying “yes,” the pair shared some s’mores with fellow guests at the resort.
On October 21, 2017, Annie and Steven said their vows in front of their family and friends at Duke University Chapel, just steps from where they had met years ago. In attendance were Annie’s parents, Jane and Chris Hogan of Chapel Hill, Steven’s parents, Cherie Anderson and Doug Lahti, matron of honor and Chapel Hill native Ali O’Leary and many more. The night was filled with dancing and excitement and Annie couldn’t have been more grateful for all of the support she received on her special day.
Steven is a first-year resident in internal medicine at Johns Hopkins, while Annie is a fourth year medical student at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine. Annie will join Steven in Baltimore when she finishes medical school.
