When Kellie Oviosun and Trey Washington enrolled at the University of North Carolina (UNC), they had no idea they were going to get schooled in the game of love. This cute couple met during an early-enrollment program, and they haven’t left each other’s side since. On the day of their 7th year anniversary, Trey decided to make Kellie his lady forever. He planned a romantic picnic for two in a nice secluded spot in the park. After he laid out the blanket and all of their food, he told Kellie, “There is one more thing,” and he asked her to be his wife! To celebrate their engagement the couple headed back to where they originally met, the campus of UNC. Luckily their photographer, Lauren Cowart Photography, was very knowledgeable of the campus and helped this couple capture some timeless intimate moments. We wish this couple all the best on their wedding day.
How They Met
Trey and I first met on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in June 2006. We met in an early-enrollment program before undergrad. Both of us were reluctant to give up our summers, but as fate would have it (or force, because our families left us with no choice) our paths crossed.
It was the day of our 7th year anniversary. Trey had planned a picnic for us at a local park. We wanted to do something low key since we were flying out for an extended weekend in New York the following day. We met up after work at a nice secluded spot in the park by the gazebo. He had packed an picnic basket with sandwiches from a local deli, a blanket, and a portable speaker. He even brought me my wide brimmed straw hat. I was pretty impressed. After he had laid out everything, he turned to me and said there is one more thing. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. And I gladly accepted.
The Engagement Session
Since we originally met on the campus of UNC it only felt right to revisit for our engagement session. Our photographer who we have both worked with before is very familiar with the campus. And the entire session felt so entirely effortless. We started at the dorm where we first met, and made our way across campus to some of our favorite spots.
Looking Forward to the Wedding
Trey is looking forward to seeing his bride walk down the aisle. And we both are looking forward to sharing the day with our friends and family.
