Wedding: Chase Woodfin & Hannah Meyers

Sports played a big part in Chase and Hannah's connection, as they first met at a Bowl game and went to a baseball game for their first date. For their wedding, the couple enjoyed "summer camp nostalgia" as friends and family toasted them.


Chapel Hill native Chase Woodfin first met Floridian Hannah Meyers in Atlanta, where they were both working on the 2013 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. When their paths crossed again the following year, the two ended up going on a successful first date to an Atlanta Braves game – and quickly became inseparable.

The pair dated for three years before Chase popped the question. The couple had just gotten a new Goldendoodle puppy, Kennedy, and were taking him on his first walk through Piedmont Park. Hannah was completely caught off guard when Chase got down on one knee by the pond – and completely enthusiastic when she said “yes.”

Hannah and Chase were married on April 21, 2018 at The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee. The reception was intimate, comprised of 30 of the couple’s closest family and friends, including their parents, Terry and Chris Woodfin and Lindsey and Chuck Meyers. Summer camp nostalgia was the theme of the wedding, with every detail of the decor, the guest book and the party favors tying back into something important to the couple. After the ceremony, Hannah and Chase’s fathers gave toasts that were both sweet and poignant. Chuck recounted fond memories of watching his daughter grow up, and Chris told a story modeled after “The Giving Tree.”

The couple ended their night by celebrating with friends at Waffle House, with Chase still in his suit and Hannah still decked out in her bridal dress and Adidas Yeezys.
