In the spring of 2014, Chapel Hill native Kyle Peterson met Maggie Peterson through mutual friends while living in Nashville after college. When September rolled around, the two started dating. The couple moved to Chapel Hill together in pursuit of Kyle’s MBA at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. To celebrate their second anniversary, Kyle whisked Maggie to the Westglow Resort and Spa in Blowing Rock for a weekend getaway. Before dinner, Kyle walked her over to the outside gazebo where he got down on one knee and proposed.
The morning of April 14, 2018 was a perfect day in Charleston. Maggie, along with her mom, Mary Peterson, Kyle’s mom, Jan Diamond, and her bridesmaids, went to the Governor Thomas Bennett House to get their hair and makeup done while Kyle had lunch with his dad, Todd Peterson, and Maggie’s dad, Dave Peterson, as well as his groomsmen and brothers.
The couple gave each other a sneak peek of their vows on the grand staircase just before the ceremony. Their mothers walked down the aisle to “I’ll Be There” by The Jackson 5, and their closest friends walked to “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen.
Leaving the decor to the wedding planner, the tent, cake and bouquets were all a beautiful surprise. Guests enjoyed delicious food, including Nashville hot chicken and macaroni and cheese. The couple danced all night to their favorite music and caught up with friends and family before exiting to guests ringing cowbells and hopping in a white 1957 Bentley.
The couple resides in Raleigh.
