Brittany Norman & Corey Bennett

September 12, 2020

Corey was studying biology and playing baseball at Limestone University in Gaffney, South Carolina, when he first met Brittany through her older brother, Bradley. He and Corey were teammates, and the more Bradley got to know Corey, the more he thought his friend would be the perfect match for his little sister. It turns out he was right, and a few evenings into her brother’s matchmaking, the pair found themselves lost in conversation for hours. Just over two years after they started dating, Corey asked Brittany to meet him after work at their special place—the secluded spot in the woods where they would go to snuggle in the bed of Corey’s truck, watch movies, and eat an entire box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. When Brittany arrived, she found Corey down on one knee at the end of a path lined with candles and rose petals. Their ceremony was held at Zion Hill Baptist Church, Corey’s childhood church, where the couple are now members. The celebration at Forevermore Farm kicked off with an ode to the Carolina Gamecocks (Corey transferred to USC to get his engineering degree). As the couple entered the reception, a mix of “2001” and “Sandstorm” rang through the speakers as guests—in true USC style—waved their white towels, which were personalized for the wedding. The pair now lives in Chesnee, South Carolina.
