At 3:30 in the afternoon, on Saturday, August 9, 2014, WFMY News 2 Anchor Tracey McCain and Jaron Barbee, Assistant District Attorney, Guilford County joined together in wedded bliss during a breathtaking church ceremony in Greensboro, N.C.

Rev. Alvin Brown, pastor of Collins Grove UMC officiated over the ceremony, witnessed and celebrated by the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard E. McCain, the parents of the groom Mr. and Mrs. John A. Barbee and four hundred of the couple’s family and closest friends. Small bundles of stunning white gardenias added the perfect touch of decorative class and elegance to each pew. With two tall, gorgeous arrangements to greet the bride and groom at the altar; the ambiance was a joyous accompaniment to the couple’s lovely union.

“It was classic, it was beautiful, it was perfect,” said McCain. “Our wedding was everything I dreamed it would be.” The traditional and personal ceremony was followed with an elegantly decorated cocktail hour and reception at Starmount Forest Country Club. McCain looked stunning in a striking Casablanca wedding gown and veil at the ceremony and switched into a remarkable off the shoulder Vera Wang gown for the reception.

Barbee, an alumnus of Wake Forest University and the North Carolina Central University School of Law asked McCain to be his bride 14 months prior with permission from her father. “I was shocked. I looked at him like, what are you doing on your knee,” said McCain. “It finally hit me, he was proposing and I started screaming with excitement. Each and every day afterward has been just as exciting.”

McCain, a graduate of the University of Connecticut, Storrs and Quinnipiac University, anchors the Good Morning Show on WFMY News 2. She was introduced to Barbee by his parents on a double date in downtown Greensboro. After a few more dates, the couple knew they had finally met their soul mates and were meant to be. When asked about their favorite wedding memory, McCain reflected on their first dance. “I had a problem with trying to take the lead. We got professional help and boom; I was cured,” said McCain. “My husband took the lead in our dance. I learned to trust him not only in dance but with my heart. I look forward to having him take the lead for the rest of our lives.”

Barbee agreed, but added, “Seeing my bride come down the aisle was amazing. That’s when I realized all my dreams of love and happiness were coming true.” The newlyweds spent their honeymoon in Las Cabos, Mexico and have made their home in Greensboro where they are both employed.
