WEDDING OF THE WEEK Talk about thinking outside the box. The Quad Cities Times has the scoop on a rather unusual wedding:
The flower girl strolled down the aisle, not spreading rose petals but fake spiders and tiny rubbery snakes. And the 100 men, women and children at the wedding were in costume, like ghouls and monsters and Dorothy with the Scarecrow. In step with the spooky season, this was a Halloween wedding at Bettendorf’s McGinnis-Chambers Funeral Home. Dan Long and Francine Clark, employees of the funeral home, had planned an October wedding. Since it was the season of ghosts and goblins, they asked funeral home owner Dave Chambers if they could have a Halloween wedding there. Dave thought it over. His place, with its pipe organ and chapel, could work for a wedding. "I told them it would be all right, if done in good taste. A few decorations would be acceptable. But I didn’t want any vampires coming out of caskets," Dave said.
There's more.
