Erin & Eric’s Wedding at The Onion Pub couldn’t have been more unique. After all, Eric proposed to Erin after they both completed the Illinois Marathon in Champaign with the exact same time! She was completely surprised while family, friends and runners congratulated them on their big finish and their engagement!
DJ Jay Sims was the perfect fit for their wedding as he is also a Marathon Runner and Triathlete. Erin & Eric wanted to bring some of their “competitive spirit” to their reception, so Jay brought out his Spin Bike for a fun game during dinner called “Spin for a Kiss.”
To add even more surprises to their wedding, Erin & Eric hired their college mascot “Herky the Hawk” from the University of Iowa to join the party. Guests old and young enjoyed hitting the dance floor with Herky throughout the night.
The wedding was truly a reflection of Erin & Eric’s journey together…from their first encounter at University of Iowa to their amazing engagement at the Illinois Marathon. Erin & Eric’s love has truly gone the distance!
