It was the annual 4th of July parade in Audubon, New Jersey, and the leading car stopped in front of a resident’s home, much to the woman’s surprise. The mayor, who got out of the car, walked up to engaged Rebecca Spurlock, and asked if she was ready to get married, according to Courier Post Online.
Everyone else knew what was going on as her now husband, George Rettbeg, set the whole thing up, according to the news source.
“I have been talking about this all year long – that it would be cool to get married on the Fourth of July, but George had said it was not going to be possible because of a paperwork delay. Everybody knew but me,” Spurlock told the news provider.
The two were married right then and there, and her wedding dress consisted of a red, white and blue outfit.
Holiday weddings is a popular idea among many brides and grooms-to-be. According to American Bridal, for those who decide to plan a wedding on a holiday should send invitations three months prior instead of the usual two.
