Gilbert and his new bride Carolyn Baez

WRAL's Fayetteville reporter Gilbert Baez was married Saturday in Mississippi to Carolyn Joyner at Brown Missionary Baptist Church. The WRAL Fayetteville Bureau Chief has been a part of WRAL-TV since 1998.

Baez and Joyner got engaged 7 months ago, in an event live streamed on his WRAL Facebook page.

Baez and his fiancée stayed at the historic Peabody Hotel in Memphis before the wedding ceremony on Saturday in Mississippi.

In a Facebook post, Baez noted that Joyner had worked at hospital in Mississippi for 30 years, which is why the state was a special location for them both to get married.

On Facebook, Baez said the timing of the marriage was perfect. Joyner is planning to move to North Carolina, where she has family in both Raleigh and Fayetteville.
