White Castle wedding: Kettering couple wins contest, gets married


A Kettering couple tied the knot in an unconventional way on Friday, April 13, as they exchanged their weddings vows at a White Castle in Cincinnati after winning a radio station’s wedding contest.

Nicole Xique, 34, and Brian Breezley, 40, of Kettering were the winners of Cincinnati’s 96ROCK’s White Castle wedding radio contest.

“The station 96.5 (96Rock) had a promotion running shortly after Valentine’s Day this year talking about a White Castle Wedding,” Xique said Monday afternoon. “To enter, you had to submit an entry and bio on why they should choose you as the couple deserving of a White Caste Wedding. We submitted an entry with zero expectations of winning.”

She added, “We are the most unconventional couple, and a conventional wedding would not suffice. I have younger children, he has older children, and our relationship began as a friendship. Having our wedding at White Castle on Friday the 13th was the perfect way to show the conventional folks that unconventional folks have more fun.”

Xique said that the couple had been dating for about a year and it was the second marriage for both, so what better way to go down the aisle then at the place where you can “buy them by the sack.”

“When we told our families, they all laughed, but they also know the we are not the typical, ordinary couple,” she explained. “The most-asked question was ‘Do we get to throw onion petals at you?’ ”

The newly-minted couple both enjoyed White Castle before the wedding and that prompted a very unique proposal.

“We did eat White Castle prior to winning. I work just down the street from the restaurant we got married at,” Xique said. “I love the onion petals and the cheeseburger sliders. My kids love the chicken rings, and Brian actually proposed with a White Castle chicken ring.”

According to White Castle, more than 75 couples have been married across the nation over the past 10 years at the its restaurants.

Xique went to Stebbins and Wright State. She graduated from Chase Law School in December and took the February bar exam. She is working as a law clerk at Nava Law LLC in Sharonville. Breezley works at Mitsubishi Electric in Mason and grew up in Blanchester.
