From the Bride:

In 1997, Elton John released his re-write of Candle in The Wind. On Christmas Day that year, Chris and I both got that as our first CD. Miles apart, having no idea that the other existed, he put his in a Walkman in Kansas and I put mine in a boom-box in Arkansas…

I moved to Kansas eventually. Chris and I went to junior high and high school together, but we never really knew each other. Years later, we reconnected. I needed a bass player, but we were just friends. One morning, during a really early radio interview (which Chris was apparently listening to) I was asked about my first CD. He told me about a year later, he got the same CD on the same day…

I wanted to get him something unique for a wedding gift. So my mom and I got online, and found that Elton John CD. 21 years old. Unopened. We had our first dance to “Something About The Way You Look Tonight.”

We’re both work full time in the music. Chris is currently a tour/road manager. It was only appropriate for us to have our reception at Knucklehead’s Saloon. From the beginning of our relationship until now, we really got to know each other there.
