Coffee dates are so last year. When Chapel Hill native Cameron Bowe asked Marylander Katie Thompson out for coffee, she politely offered up a more exciting option: cocktails at The Crunkleton. After a year and a half of dating, Katie spent a girlsโ€™ weekend in Boston, while Cameron was supposedly at the beach for a bachelor party. As Katie was walking through the Public Garden, she spotted what she thought was a Cameron look-alike. Caught off guard, Katie walked up to a tongue-tied Cameron, who proposed amid several clapping onlookers.

Katie and Cameron got married at The Chapel of the Cross and traveled via golf cart to their reception at The Carolina Inn. After pie and cake from The Root Cellar, the couple brought out a piรฑata filled with candy, confetti and, of course, airplane bottles of TOPO Organic Spirits to liven up the party. The night culminated with bagpipes escorting the newlyweds out of the reception.

Cameron currently works as a software engineering director for ChannelAdvisor, and Katie is the director of leadership gifts for Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. They reside in Raleigh.
