On February 22, 2009 the Raleigh-Durham Airport become more than just an airport, it became a memory that will be embedded in our hearts forever.
Let's begin at the begining.Erika was returning from a trip to help with the planning of Michelle Libner's (Hudson) wedding. Erika is a bridesmaid in Michelle wedding scheduled for June 2009. Erika traveled to the Garden State to help select flowers, cake, and participate in other Bridesmaids duties. While she was up north she caught up with other friends in Jersey. Erika thought that Dretti was having a great time with his family in Caroline County. At least this is what she thought. However, she would soon find out that he was far from Caroline on that weekend. In fact he was in Chesapeake asking her parents for her hand in marriage. But she was not privy to this little details.
About the bride >>Erika is the youngest of two daughters. Her parents, Stephen and Gladys Massenburg, raised their small family in Norfolk, VA. Because Erika's sister is 12 years older, Erika was able to enjoy the best of both worlds, having a sister and being a "pseudo"-only child.
<< About the groom Andretti is the only child of Theodore and Betty Brown. Born and raised in Caroline County, Dretti spent most of his childhood enjoying the country life and traveling around the country with his parents.
How we met Andretti and Erika meet while in undegrate school at Virginia Commonwealth University. Depending on which one you ask you will get a different year of when they meet. Andretti says they met in 1998 and Erika will stand by her date of 2000. No matter what the official date it seems that the stars were determined to keep the two together.
