On August 18, 2023, Ariel Mahoney started the day full of life and excited to take the leap into marriage with her long-time love Kurtis. “We went to the courthouse and got our marriage certificate,” shared Ariel. “We decided to celebrate by joining friends in Pinehurst.” The couple enjoyed their visit, then started the return trip home.
