The groom is a Roane County native who was born in Harriman. A graduate of Roane County High School and the University of Tennessee, he spent his junior year at the Universidad de las Americas in Mexico City. He taught French and Spanish at Oak Ridge High School from 1967 until retirement in 2000. Since then he has been a travel agent with Polaris Travel, Oak Ridge.

When they are not traveling, the couple will divide their time between their homes in Oak Ridge and Kingston.
