Couple celebrates Leap Day wedding at White Castle

FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - A Tri-State couple celebrated a 'Leap of Love' Wednesday at the Florence White Castle.

Christina Eklar, of Independence, and Jim Rogers, of Dent, won B-105's 'Leap of Love' contest.

Christina and Jim tied the knot during a Leap Day noon ceremony at the White Castle on U.S. 42 in Florence. Presiding over the ceremony was B-105's Stattman from the Chris Carr & Company Morning Show.

Christina and Jim were randomly chosen from many entries submitted via the station's website which asked, "Why do you propose we choose you?"

Christina has a long history with White Castle. She says while her mother was staying in the hospital after giving birth to her daughter, her father snuck White Castle in and the restaurant has been in her life ever since. She wanted to start her new life with her new husband and favorite radio station, B 105.1, where her life started, at White Castle.
