2 Couples Marry at Bacon Festival in Des Moines

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 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.
