Wedding Date Oct. 2, 2020 Occupations Jamie is a wine sales representative for Empire Distributors Inc., and Tim is a manager at Chapel Hill Wine Company. Crossed Paths Jamie and Tim each grew up in Florida and moved to North Carolina, Jamie in 2003 and Tim in 2011. They met in 2015 on a blind date at a Durham Bulls game, orchestrated by Jamie’s roommate. “Once we started talking, we didn’t stop all night,” Jamie says. They saw each other every day for the next two weeks. The Proposal Four years later, Tim and Jamie attended their first Bulls game of the season with Tim’s parents, Doug and Kathy Roach. The group stopped to take photos in front of a Bulls statue, the place where the couple took their first photo together. Jamie saw some of her friends and tried to walk away, but Kathy insisted, “just a few more.” Soon, Jamie turned to leave again and saw her sister, about 20 friends, and Tim down on one knee. “I can’t remember exactly what he said,” Jamie says, “but I saw a ring, and I said, ‘Yes.’” And, she said, the Bulls won, capping off a truly celebratory evening. Now, “I Do” The ceremony and reception will be at The Rickhouse. The couple plans to live in south Durham.
