The first happy couple, Tricia Snider and Tom Watson, decided to wed at the festival after the bride-to-be learned that Viva Las Bacon was this years theme. I said, Sweet, we love bacon, Snider told The Des Moines Register.
Watson said that his bride was one of the great loves of his life, joking, Shes second only to bacon.
The lovebirds competed against dozens of couples to have their wedding at the Bacon Festival.
The bride carried a bouquet made of bacon as she and the groom recited their vows and united their love by ceremoniously sharing a piece of bacon.
And Davila threw her bacon-quet to an eager (and possibly hungry) bunch of ladies.
Congratulations to the happy couples! May your bacon always be crispy.
Ron Swanson also sends his best wishes.
