Sarah Carter & Chandler Duggan

December 8, 2018

It’s not often that a senior prom date introduces you to your forever soul mate, but when Chandler Duggan’s former prom partner introduced him to her sorority sister Sarah Carter at a birthday bash, sparks began to fly. Chandler was about to exit the party, but when Sarah arrived on the scene, he changed his mind. After four years of dating, Chandler planned a weekend getaway to the mountains of Tennessee, not forgetting to pack the engagement ring he had designed for Sarah himself. On the final day of their trip, Chandler popped the question, receiving an absolute “yes” from his bride-to-be. In preparation for the big day, Chandler wrote his vows in German to honor his family heritage. For their ceremony at Gassaway Mansion in Greenville, Sarah wore her late grandmother’s heirloom bracelet, along with a form-fitting gown designed by Oleg Cassini, combining elements of a mermaid silhouette and a classic ball gown. The couple plans to stay in the Carolinas; Chandler is a workforce development specialist for Benteler Automotive, while Sarah is pursuing teaching English and multimedia production.
