Couple: Wedding threatened by Ohio event waterfall
CLEVELAND — Some couples honeymoon near waterfalls. One couple complains their wedding was nearly ruined by a manmade waterfall in Cleveland. Larry Graham and Amy Lauer said they got a permit 10 months ago to hold their ceremony Saturday in a park south of downtown. But the bride- and groom-to-be said they learned last week that a festival the same day will turn a nearby bridge into a waterfall with 8,000 gallons flowing per minute.
Graham and Lauer said they and their guests would be drenched.
IngenuityFest marketing director James Krouse doubts that, and he told The Plain Dealer the waterfall would be lovely for wedding photos.
However, the couple also found out the festival is likely to mean tight parking. So, they’re moving their nuptials to a restaurant.
