Emily Moore & Kyle Porter


July 4, 2020

When you know, you know, and for Emily and Kyle their connection was immediate. It was love at first sight when Kyle arrived for his physical therapy appointment at Proverb Fitness and was paired with Emily as his therapist. The two soon realized they were from the same hometown, and nine months later, Kyle was down on one knee. Emily is a hard one to surprise, so under the guise of going wedding-venue shopping for his brother, Kyle took Emily to Pretty Place to pop that all-important question in a spot that was beautiful, even in the rain. Although the Fourth of July always brings a big celebration, that date is even more special for this pair, because Emily’s great-grandparents were also married on this day in 1940. At Secona Baptist Church in Pickens, the backdrop for all of Emily’s family weddings, the couple said, “I do.” They now live on a charming little farm in Pickens and commute to their jobs: Emily as a physical therapist with ATI, and Kyle as an Epic analyst at Prisma Health.
