USA: Ding Dong Go the Wedding Bells
Downing grew up eating Ding Dongs and didn't think much of the gesture. But, for Swearengin, it was an epiphany.
"It was a sign," said Swearengin. "I thought, 'Hey! This is the girl for me.' I've eaten Ding Dongs since I was a kid. For me, they're like a food group."
Three weeks later, Swearengin asked Downing to marry him. While planning their wedding, it only seemed appropriate to include their "matchmaker" in the festivities.
The couple will have a unique groom's cake made with 130 individual Ding Dongs. To match the Estes Park wedding ceremony setting, the cake will illustrate a mountain scene: complete with a stream and sprinkled with edible trees.
"It's perfect for us. We went to Rocky Mountain National Park for one of our first dates." said Swearengin. "It was romantic. We love the mountains and we love Ding Dongs."
Additionally, guests will take home individually wrapped Ding Dong favors, personalized with stickers illustrating Courtney and Jammie's names and wedding date.
"I love it," said Courtney. "It's the extra touches that truly personalize weddings and make them your own."
Courtney and Jammie will take a honeymoon to Hawaii in September and reside in Denver, Co.
