Dr. Emily Dawn Cole and Grant Trapnell Farmer were married June 22 at the Unfinished Church, an Anglican ruin in St. George’s, Bermuda. The Rev. Dr. Leonard D.M. Santucci, an African Methodist Episcopal minister, performed the ceremony.
In July, Dr. Cole, 30, is to begin the first year of an ophthalmology residency at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary in Chicago. Earlier this month, she completed an intern year at NYC Health and Hospitals’s Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. She graduated from Brown and received both a medical degree and a master’s degree in public health from Tufts.
She is a daughter of Sarah T. Cole and Dr. William A. Cole of San Francisco. The bride’s father was until 2014 an orthodontist in private practice in Margaretville, N.Y., and is now an associate professor of orthodontics at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif. Her mother retired as the laboratory director at Environmental Labworks, a commercial water and wastewater testing laboratory in Marlboro, N.Y.
Mr. Farmer, 33, is the general manager for the Brooklyn site of MetroRock, a climbing center scheduled to open this month. He graduated with highest honor from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
He is the son of Dorset W. Trapnell and Mark A. Farmer of Winterville, Ga. Both work at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga. The groom’s mother is an associate professor of plant biology, and his father is a professor of cellular biology.
The couple met in 2013 at the MetroRock location in Everett, Mass., where Mr. Farmer was then an assistant manager. “I asked her if she wanted to go climbing outside sometime, and she said yes,” Mr. Farmer said.
