Carol & Chad

Carol and Chad met in 2006 through a mutual friend. They met for lunch one day and fell in love…at first sight! They’ve been together ever since. 

On Valentine’s Day in 2013, the couple got engaged while out to dinner and began their wedding planning journey soon thereafter. 

Carol and Chad wanted a Scottish/Celtic theme wedding and chose to host it at the beautiful Burke Manor Inn. Incorporating the colors of red, blue, purple and black, no detail was left unturned. 

Our wedding day was perfect and intimate, including only immediate family and close friends. My three children were our wedding party.
One of the most unique elements of our wedding day was the Hand Binding Ceremony. My three children held the ring while my husband and I braded the binding ropes. Then, we binded our hands together while the bagpipes played the Braveheart theme. We literally tied the knot!
