2 Couples Marry at Bacon Festival in Des Moines
CREATED Feb. 3, 2014
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two Iowa couples decided to tie the knot at this weekend's bacon festival at the state fairgrounds.
The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1gEc994 ) Tricia Snider and Tom Watson were the first to wed Saturday at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. Craig and April Rouch got married a short while later.
Watson and Snider say they figured the bacon festival was the perfect location to exchange vows because they enjoy bacon together every weekend.
The 47-year-old Watson says his love for his 41-year-old bride is second only to his love for bacon.
The chapel where the couple married had a wall full of windows that looked out over an arena full of vendors selling bacon-filled foods.
