Parker-Corchiani Wedding
When Jane Parker and Chris Corchiani met during their sophomore year at N . C . State , they instantly knew they shared a special connection . And they celebrated that connection on December 17 , 2021 , when they married at the bride ’ s family home in Naples , Florida .
The bride wore a sweetheart ball gown with embroidered Chantilly lace details by Justin Alexander . Jane complemented the look with a pair of her mother ’ s Swarovski crystal-and-pearl earrings , also worn by the bride ’ s sister for her 2020 nuptials . Chris found Jane ’ s three-diamond engagement ring at Reliable Jewelry in
Raleigh , and her wedding band at Windsor Jewelers in Charlotte . Windsor Jewelers also made Chris ’ wedding band , and both bands were engraved with bible verses and messages to each other .
The couple , who live in Charlotte with their dog , Sloane , were married beneath a canopy of oaks by Jane ’ s childhood pastor . Afterward , family and friends enjoyed cocktails , dinner and dancing . And in a nod to the holidays , a poinsettia tree and lighted Christmas tree in a rowboat added a festive touch .
