White Castle Columbus Wedding Fit For A Princess
Also Known As: So You Want To Get Married At White Castle...
Columbus, OH- At a quarter past noon on February 24, 2011, a couple who met in the parking lot of a White Castle took their relationship a step farther: they married each other at a White Castle. Bob Stischok and Gina Spencer were selected as winners in The White Castle Wedding, an idea of Columbus radio DJs, Blazor and Mo of rock station, 99.7, The Blitz. Blazor told NBC’s Columbus news affiliate, WCMH, they came up with this idea “a couple of weeks ago” while on-air, and that “several hundred people actually registered to win.” He went on to say that choosing Bob and Gina as their winning couple was easy. Lifetime fans of the fast-food restaurant chain, known widely for its sliders, Bob had been Gina’s knight-in-shining-armor when he came to her rescue thirteen years before in a White Castle parking lot where she was having car trouble.
As part of their wedding prize package, Bob and Gina, the lucky-in-love radio listeners, won their wedding ceremony at White Castle, wedding rings from Meyers Jewelers, wedding attire from Damaged, flowers from Flowerama, and a honeymoon stay at Ravenswood Castle, a fairytale hotel in the Hocking Hills of Ohio. And, of course, White Castle generously catered the reception-sliders, fries, and chicken rings-which was held at their Henderson Road location in Upper Arlington, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus.
Both radio DJs Blazor and Mo served as the bridesmaids, and Mo did double-duty as the ring bearer. Judge Harland Hale officiated the wedding ceremony. A toddler caught the bride’s wedding bouquet. After the nuptials were said, Gina, the bride, admitted to still being nervous and her groom, Bob, said he was just waiting to see what else is in store for the pair.
White Castle, a popular US restaurant chain, first opened its doors in 1921 in Wichita, Kansas.
