Amber Benfield & Jerad Horn
In 2007, Jerad, who hails from New York, reached out to North Carolina native Amber on MySpace. After a few messages sent back and forth, a four-hour phone conversation, and a dinner-and-a-movie first date, the couple, who live in Mooresville, North Carolina, began dating. Following a four-year courtship, Jerad proposed to Amber with a 18th-century diamond passed down from his great aunt. The couple wed and received guests to a reception at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.
