Bacon-Loving Lovebirds Marry at Bacon Festival

The lucky couple pledged their undying love of bacon and one another in front of loved ones, and thousands of fellow bacon lovers.

On Feb. 1, two lovebirds and true bacon lovers got married at the 'Viva Las Bacon' 7th Annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in Des Moines, Iowa. The happy couple celebrated with “bacon bouquets, unity bacon, and tossing of congratulatory bacon bits," according to the festival’s sponsors, Farmland Foods and LAZER 101.3.

The lucky couple, Craig Roush and April Davila, had been chosen by voters to receive the bacon-filled wedding of their dreams in the company of twenty of their closest family and friends, as well as thousands of festival-goers. The couple exchanged vows in the Vegas-inspired Chapel OHHHH Bacon, where guests honored the newly married couple by tossing bacon bits into the air.


Other notable events at the festival included cooking demonstrations from the Farmland bacon chef, bacon lectures, a bacon eating contest, and the crowning of the annual bacon queen.
