When Mike and Nancy Law started making plans for their 50th wedding anniversary, they didn’t have to look far to find a place to celebrate.
The Raleigh couple knew it had to be Pinehurst.
After all, they spent their brief, but memorable honeymoon here. The pair wed in between semesters – Mike was attending North Carolina State University and Nancy was a student at East Carolina University.
“We only had a few days, so we knew it had to be somewhere close,” Mike said. “Neither of us had ever been to Pinehurst, but we knew it was a great resort.
“It turned out to be a wonderful place.”
For their golden anniversary, Nancy figured the couple would travel to Pinehurst for a nice dinner at the Carolina Dining Room.
But Mike knew the occasion called for a bigger celebration.
