  • Fire Truck Wedding in Indiana

    McCUTCHANVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Growing up, Hollie Newcomb dreamed
    of her wedding day as an occasion with tuxedos, gowns, a
    horse-drawn carriage and a traditional Roman Catholic service.
    The wedding she got Saturday was a bit different - she and her
    firefighter fiance exchanged vows in the "bucket" of a fire
    truck.
    More than 80 people gathered Saturday to witness Newcomb's
    wedding to Chris Phillips on the platform of the McCutchanville
    Fire Station's new "102-foot aerial platform water tower truck."
    The entire service, with the retired Rev. Ken Kramer Sr.
    officiating, took place in the platform's bucket - a space slightly
    bigger than a telephone booth - raised a few feet off the ground.
    Also crowded into the bucket with Newcomb, 23, Phillips, 25, and
    the minister for the nearly 30-minute service were matron of honor
    Becky Mangold and best man Chad Burleigh.
    Shortly after the couple's first kiss as husband and wife, the
    wedding party was raised 30 feet into the air for a view of
    McCutchanville, a town a few miles north of Evansville.
    Since her new husband is a six-year volunteer firefighter at the
    station, Newcomb said it was "perfect to be married on the fire
    truck," because that's what he loves.
    Phillips was amused by the nontraditional ceremony.
    "You know, it was her idea. And I thought that was the coolest
    thing," he said. "All I keep thinking is my soon-to-be-wife wants
    to get married on a fire truck, because of me. You don't know how
    much that means to me."
