Kentucky minister marries couple on NBC’s ‘Today Show’
MADISONVILLE, Ky. — When Buddy Butler and Nikki Hensley were chosen as the winners of the Today Show’s “Destination Wedding,” they wanted the ceremony to be just like they were marrying in a church back home in Kentucky.
So Butler, a member of First Christian Church, Madisonville, Ky., asked Disciples minister Wayne Edwards to officiate. Edwards, minister of music at First Christian for almost 20 years, has known Butler since the latter started singing in the children’s choir at age six.
