Currin & Duke
Rodney Currin, 54, and Patrick Duke, 53, of Mount Holly, N.C., were married on Nov. 15, 2014, in a sunset wedding ceremony on the Kissing Bridge at the Carolina Renaissance Festival. Mr. Currin, a native of Oxford, N.C., and Mr. Duke, a native of Apex, N.C., met 30 years ago through a mutual friend, but waited until their marriage was legally recognized in their home state before tying the knot. The couple has called the Charlotte area their home, which they share with three beloved cats, for three decades. They thank the Carolina Renaissance Festival and officiant Tony Miller for making the special occasion an absolutely incredible experience.
