Todd & Reid

Screen Shot 2014-12-29 at 11.44.08 AM.png


After her freshman year at UNC, Kara Todd was the gymnastics instructor at Camp Towanda in the Pocono Mountains when she met the golf instructor. At the end of the summer, Graham Reid returned to Scotland, but the two started dating long-distance, racking up five years of frequent flyer miles to visit each other as often as they could. When Kara visited Graham and his family for the Christmas of 2012, he tookher to the ruin of an old church abbey called Sweetheart Abbey. It was the first ruin Kara had seen on her first visit four years earlier and her favorite place in the country. After Graham got down on one knee and proposed (and Kara said yes!), the pair surprised friends and family with their good news on Christmas Day. With many ties to the area (the bride-to- be attended Phillips Middle School and her grandmother Penny Thompson lives in Fearrington Village), Kara and Graham thought first of Chapel Hill for their wedding. The couple will hold their rehearsal dinner at Weathervane and will wed at The Carolina Inn on April 3, 2015. The two reside in Washington, D.C.
