LEBANON, Tenn. (WZTV) — A Middle Tennessee couple exchanged vows on a lovely, family farm two days before Halloween.
Then they had their reception with a side of hashbrowns.
Eli Holbrook and Mary Cate Hedge met during high school in 2016. The Wilson County natives later reconnected after Eli joined the Marines – they would talk on the phone daily while he finished up his tour.
When Eli returned to Tennessee from Japan, his first stateside meal was at Waffle House.
Fast forward a few years, and the happy couple celebrated their engagement. While planning their wedding, Mary Cate felt she was getting more attention than the groom. She decided to surprise Eli with a wedding reception at his favorite restaurant.
And that’s eggs-actly what they did.
The Lebanon couple spent the evening of Oct. 29 celebrating their new life as a married couple at the Waffle House on S. Cumberland Street.
A bride who’s sincerely concerned about her groom’s enjoyment of the festivities! She’s the exact opposite of a “bridezilla.” Take good care of her Eli, and may you have many happy years together.
