Boxwell Weddings: The Bucks
As promised, we start our series on Boxwell weddings this week. To be honest, we don’t know exactly how many weddings have happened at Boxwell. Most are staff related, but not all. The ones we are going to showcase here all have a staff connection. SO, in no particular order…
Bradley and Carrie Buck met in November of 2008; they married at Boxwell in December 2010. Bradley, aka “Bucky,” had already been a Craig staff member for 4 years by 2010. Why Boxwell? As Carrie quite succintly explained, “Bradley’s life revolves around scouts. I knew how important Boxwell was to him and wanted to share that love for such a wonderful place. Boxwell is an alcohol free reservation and that was important to my family. Truly was a win win.”
While there are several photos to choose from, the one below clearly show the camp connection. While you wouldn’t know it by looking, an ice storm moved the ceremony from Camp Craig to the Fehrmann Training Center (Akers’ Cabin/Ittabeena). The high for the day was a balmy 45 degrees! Fellow staff member, now Trail of Tears District Executive, Ian Weir was the photographer.
After getting married, the couple would actually work on camp staff together for several years, sometimes literally together, sometimes in different roles on the staff. They have truly been a “Boxwell Power Couple.”
