Country Couple Get Hitched At Cowboy Church: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Iowa couple tied the knot in a Western-themed wedding during Cowboy Church services at the Fort Worth Stock Show in Texas.


B.J. Penning of Corwith, Iowa, and Kim Kelly of Clear Lake, Iowa, said they decided to hold their wedding at Cowboy Church in the Will Rogers Auditorium. They got the idea after attending services during last year`s Stock Show."


In Iowa your career options are very limited; you`re a farmer, unemployed or a meth dealer. Penning is an honest-to-goodness farmer; he raises corn on a 1,500 acre farm.

I hate weddings, the thought of thousands down the drain to celebrate a union that will probably last only a couple of years make me nauseous.

But I would love to attend a Western-themed wedding, who wouldn`t love to line dance, guzzle moonshine and kiss a country bride?

Congrats to the country couple, may their still never run dry and their crops never fail.
