Winners of the $50,000 wedding at Magnolia Gardens
Katie Durham and Bobby Hill, whose plans to marry next year were delayed by their deployment to Afghanistan with the Army, are the winners of “Sharing the Romance,” a $50,000 wedding package offered by Magnolia Plantation and Gardens and Charleston wedding vendors.
Durham, a resident of Miramar, Fla., is a military intelligence officer. Hill, a resident of Boaz, Ala., is an infantry officer. They serve in the same Army unit in Kandahar, Afghanistan, with Operation Enduring Freedom.
Both were deployed earlier this year a month after he proposed at sunrise on a dock in Key West, Fla. Winning the contest helps Durham, 24, and Hill, 27, plan a wedding while they are in Afghanistan.
The couple’s wedding will be Feb. 9, in the Carriage House at Magnolia.
They will honeymoon in Charleston.
