A parking valet pulled through the wedding of a couple from Fells Point earlier this week when he officiated their wedding ceremony following snow shut down of the courthouse, where they were supposed to get married.
Tim Christofield, 33, and Megan Peterson, 29, had planned to tie the knot at Anne Arundel County Circuit Court in Annapolis earlier on Tuesday. But, like most places, the courthouse was closed because of the heaviest snow of the season in that region.
The pair had been hatching their wedding plans for several months. Their parents had also come in from outside of state for the wedding ceremony. One-Eyed Mike’s in Fells Point’s bartender stated that this was kind of a once-in-a-lifetime scope to have everyone together and also get it done.
The pair was not deterred on Tuesday morning when they came to know that the courthouse was shut down. The bride got her makeup and hair done while the groom searched for an alternative place to arrange the wedding ceremony.
Megan Peterson, an employee with the international health nonprofit named Jhpiego, told that they were really quite excited regarding the courthouse wedding, and it became so much more intimate when it turned into being in their hotel room.
The pair, who had earlier met and talked with Patterson the evening before, asked Patterson to officiate. Luckily, he agreed but they required to wait till his shift finished at 3 pm.
The spectacular wedding of Corey and Lynette Perkins in Zimbabwe last month was something that none of them ever expected to happen. Twenty two year old Lynette, originally from Harare, got to know Corey, 26, when she came to the US on a field hockey scholarship program at the Seton Hall University.
Corey proposed after six months of dating and after 6 months, in the year 2010, the couple got married in a small wedding ceremony in Mechanicsburg, Penn.
Lynette’s parents could not be there at the wedding because of financial problem.
While speaking to a leading website, she told that when they told her that they were not able to make it to the 1st wedding, her whole world fell apart. That time she knew that it would not be complete till her parents had their snaps in her wedding album. In fact, even last year she thought that this would never happen.
The pair wanted to arrange a 2nd dream wedding in Africa. Still, it took some time as there were financial challenges, busy work schedules. Their dream came true when Corey’s job gave him the chance. Corey was very much interested in Zimbabwe even before he came to know Lynette.
It was just 6 months ago when Corey was told that his employer would finance their trip that also good for Lynette who went home after 4 and half years. Corey told that they knew they were going to have a huge ceremony at some point with her family and his job opened the doors into the country.
