Weddings at the Fair
 
 
 
 
Weddings at the Fair:
 
 
 
We had a great time at the 2012 Washington County Fair!  My wife and I met hundreds of wonderful people.  Whether getting married, renewing wedding vows, watching ceremonies, or just visiting with us - we had a great experience!
 
The event seemed to be pretty well received too.  In addition to meeting so many fascinating people, we drew interest from numerous media outlets who all wanted to see what was going on.  We were covered at the fair by KARE 11 TV, the Star Tribune, the Stillwater Gazette, the South Washington County Bulletin, the Woodbury Bulletin, and the Oakdale-Lake Elmo Review.  We were also mentioned on the national program, Shop NBC.  

Here is the link to a story in the Forest Lake Times announcing the event:  http://forestlaketimes.com/2012/07/25/washington-county-fair-starts-wednesday/     Here is a link to the Stillwater Gazette story describing the event as it happened:  http://stillwatergazette.com/2012/08/08/feeling-the-love-50-couples-exchange-marriage-renewal-vows-at-county-fair/
 
In all I was able to officiate at over 40 ceremonies - including nearly a dozen weddings.   Wedding anniversaries ranged from a couple celebrating their first, to another couple celebrating their 50th.   We had folks attending from all over Washington County and the greater Metro area.  We also had attendees from as far away as New Jersey and Niagra Falls, Ontario, Canada.  Not bad, eh?
 
Thank you for such a great experience.
