Chapel Hill natives Paige Morrow and Kristine Falk grew up less than a mile apart but didn’t meet until attending East Chapel Hill High School, where they were on the soccer team together. After college, they reconnected and started dating soon after that.
One Christmas Day, the couple was with Paige’s family when Kristine gave her a book called “I Love You – My Reasons Why” that had a proposal at the end. Kristine had asked everyone to stay inside as they read the book outside, but soon they had a full audience for Paige’s eventual “of course!”
On June 9, 2018, the couple was married during a ceremony officiated by Kristine’s younger brother, John Falk, at The Barn of Chapel Hill. Both Kristine’s older brother, Ben Falk, and Paige’s older brother, James Morrow, played music during the ceremony. Katie Garnett, Paige’s older sister, read a poem written by their late father, Whit Morrow, to their mother, Debbie Morrow. Friends Cliff Minsley and Alex Elkins wrote and read a poem they titled “What is Love?” Paige’s twin, Leigh Morrow, served as maid of honor, Katelyn Oldenburg was matron of honor and a dozen high school and college friends were bridesmaids.
At the reception, guests enjoyed music from DJ Joe Bunn and food and wine from Beau Catering and Winestore. At dinner, Kristine’s parents, Kathy and Ron Falk, said the blessing together. Guests continued the celebration at The Station in Carrboro where they danced into the night with the couple’s high school friend as DJ.
The couple resides in Chapel Hill.
