Romance and bacon sizzler

Two Iowa couples decided to tie the knot at this weekend's bacon festival at the state fairgrounds in Des Moines.

Tricia Snider and Tom Watson were the first to wed Saturday at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. Craig and April Rouch got married a short while later.

Watson and Snider say they thought the bacon festival was the perfect location to exchange vows because they enjoy bacon together every weekend.

The 47-year-old Watson said his 41-year-old bride is nearly the No. 1 love in his life.

"She's second only to bacon," Watson said.

The chapel where the couple married had a wall full of windows that looked out over an arena full of vendors selling bacon-filled foods.

They exchanged vows about staying together "in good times and bacon," but for the most part they kept their ceremony traditional.

Afterward, a cake topped with a bacon-strip bride and groom awaited the couple and their guests.
