CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Two Army officers whose wedding plans were delayed when they were deployed to Afghanistan are finally tying the knot at an historic South Carolina plantation.
Katie Durham, a military intelligence officer from Miramar, Fla., and Bobby Hill, an infantry officer from Boaz, Ala., say their vows on Saturday at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens outside of Charleston.
The two won the $50,000 wedding from the plantation and local wedding vendors after entering a contest to say why they wanted a Magnolia wedding and Charleston honeymoon. They submitted a video along with dozens of other couples.
Last June, seven judges selected four semifinalists from the videos submitted.
The four videos were then posted on Magnolia's website and people around the country selected the winners.
