Pittsboro natives Lauren Gunter and Trey Andrews found themselves in a budding relationship after crossing paths multiple times through mutual friends. Over their eight years together, hitting the dirt bike tracks became a regular hobby for the couple, but one recent trip would prove extra special.
It was just another weekend at the track to Lauren. She says she opened the trailer to take Trey’s dirt bike out but was surprised to see a brand new one. She turned around, and he was down on one knee, ready to pop the question. Lauren said “yes,” and the couple’s close friends, Chasen Parrish and Camille Shelton, who will be in the wedding party, were there to enjoy the special moment with them.
“It was a huge surprise,” Lauren says. “I had absolutely no clue it was coming, but it couldn’t have been any better.”
The couple plans to say “I do” on Oct. 16, 2021, at Whispering Oaks in Julian, North Carolina. Lauren’s best friend, Jesse Blackwood, will be her maid of honor, and Trey’s cousin, Josh McNeil, will be his best man.
Lauren works as a dental assistant at The Happy Tooth in Chapel Hill, and Trey works for Dominion Energy. The couple plans to remain in Pittsboro.
