Watermelon Day- Rose Valley, Pennsylvania
From the sweetest bride-Even before we got engaged, we knew when we wanted to get married – Watermelon Day, which is an annual party that is hosted yearly on the day that Ted was adopted. As Ted’s mother was en route to adopt him, a truck filled with 30,000 watermelons took a hard right and spilled the watermelons all over I95 – the only way into the city in 1983. This created a closure, preventing Ted’s mom from the thing she wanted most – her little boy. Eventually, the family was able to bring Ted home, and when he arrived, his parents, neighbors and close friends celebrated by enjoying watermelons. The day is celebrated year after year and has turned in to a party with our closest friends. It’s our favorite day of the year and we wanted that same vibe for our wedding, so we decided to make it a Watermelon Day Wedding, except instead of playing wiffle ball, we got married at home plate. Instead of slices of watermelon, we had watermelon cocktails. We popped up a big, beautiful tent and danced into the next day. Our favorite part of the day, and it’s hard to pick just one, was at the end of the ceremony when we were surprised by the Phillie Phanatic! My sisters, my Matron of Honor and one of my bridesmaids, arranged having the big green guy attend as our wedding present. I’ll never live such an incredible day in my life.
