After five and a half years as a long-distance couple — at one point 1,200 miles apart — Emily and Emory, who grew up in Charlotte, are finding joy in being together in their new home of Del Rio, Texas. Saturdays are spent doing home projects, watching football and grilling out with Sedona, their rescue pup, by their side. Emory, an Air Force instructor pilot, and Emily, who works in supply chain in the food service industry, wed in an intimate family ceremony at Emily’s parents’ Charlotte backyard. A year later, they held a larger celebration at Providence Cotton Mill, a venue Emily dreamt of for years. Favorite moments included backyard fireworks arranged by Emily’s dad and the couple’s private dance as the Cotton Mill celebration came to a close. “It was the end of the best day of our lives,” Emily says. “But we also were reflecting on how blessed we were to have experienced that day.”
