Jessica Goforth will tie the knot with her prince Nick Hundzsa Saturday, June 23, 2012 at 3pm in down town Garrettsville on the main stage at SummerFest. Garrettsville Mayor Craig Moser will officiate at the nuptials.

Jessica met Nick on a school playground when she was only 14 years old and Nick was 16 years old. They fell in love and helped each other through some very difficult times and still remained together. Eighteen years and two children later they find their love still is going strong and have lasted longer than many marriages, so the two have decided that now is the time to become Mr. and Mrs.

A co-worker of Jessica’s saw the SummerFest wedding article and she encouraged Jessica to write an essay on why she and Nick should be this year’s first couple. In the essay Jessica stated that she and Nick had been together a long time and always wanted to get married but they never had the cash to do so. Jessica said now that their children are older it is more important than ever that she and Nick tie the knot. She believes it is important that their children see their mom and dad as husband and wife rather than girl friend and boyfriend. She wants her children to see that things are just things and love, respect and loyalty are all one needs and, in the scheme of things, mean the most. So getting married is the ultimate dream for her.  The dream will become a reality on June 23, 2012 at Garrettsville SummerFest.

The wedding package will include, uniquely designed invitations by Villager Printing, a hairstyle befitting a queen from Luanne at Denette’s Golden Mirror, and flowers from Art-n-Flowers and The Bay Window, harp music from Ellen Eckhouse, Krista’s Photography will capture the memories and Carolyn’s Cakes will provide a wedding cake for the reception. Nick and Jessica will also receive wine from the Cellar Winery, dinner from Main Street Grille and Brewing Company and overnight accommodations at the Hiram Inn. On Sunday, the couple will return and ride in the SummerFest Grand Parade, which steps off at noon.
