ABOUT THE COUPLE
How they met: The bride and groom met on Match.com. On their first date, they found out that they had a mutual friend who tried to set them up on a date nine months before, but it never worked out. 
How he proposed: The bride and groom were in the basement of their new home getting ready to go out on a date when he suggested they have a drink before they left. He got down on one knee, told Kelly that he loved her and asked her to marry him. 
Bride’s occupation: Lincoln Middle School, Kenosha
Groom’s occupation: Johnson Bank, Kenosha

THE CEREMONY
The ceremony: The ceremony was supposed to be outside at UW-Parkside. About 20 minutes before the ceremony, it was moved indoors because of weather. The minute the “I dos” were said, it started to downpour. Instead of unity candles the couple used goldfish, uniting them to symbolize the joining of a family. 
The gown: The gown was an A-line beaded gown with a sweetheart neckline. 
The bouquet: The bouquet was a mix of orange roses and orange lilies. 
The theme: Orange and turquoise.

The menu: Choice of roast beef, chicken or vegetarian. 
What made the day unique: The minister who performed the ceremony is the bride’s brother’s father-in-law. He married her brother and sister-in-law and married her sister and brother-in-law. He made the marriages in the family complete by marrying the bride and groom. 
Most touching moment of the day: Right before the bride walked down the aisle, her dad told her how beautiful she looked and how she would always be his little girl.
