“Kerr and I couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere other than Charlotte,” says Mahroo, who met Kerr while working with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. “Our shared passion for service to our community is how our paths crossed at CMPD, nearly 20 years ago,” Mahroo says. “I left Charlotte for years but always felt that I had unfinished work here. I often refer to that pull as destiny calling.” Mahroo returned to the Queen City in 2014 after living in Houston and New York City; meanwhile Kerr rose through the ranks and recently retired as the chief of police. “We have an amazing story of destiny and service to our community.” The couple’s wedding blended American and Persian traditions, including a belly dancer, traditional Persian cake-cutting dance, butterfly release, DJ and band.
