The bride wore a bathing suit...so did the groom ...and the rest of the wedding?
The bride wore a bathing suit...so did the groom ...and the rest of the wedding party when Barbara Engle and Ray Shearer were married at Cincinnati, Ohio, Sunday 4 August.
The romance blossomed when the couple met as members of a water skiing troupe which performs on a lake at an amusement park at Cincinnati. It seemed appropriate to them, therefore, that they should be wed on skis. The minister performed the first part of the ceremony on the dock and then rode in the tow boat for the final part of the ceremony. Even the 11-year-old flower girl, Candy Smith, a member of the troupe, was on skis. Loudspeakers carried the pronouncing of the vows to an audience of hundreds.
