Road trips are a truly American thing. They are a great way to experience the beauty of this country. And to see your friends and family that are spread from sea to shining sea. That’s exactly what Chris Hodges and Jaime Case decided to do in lieu of a traditional wedding.
Instead of asking guests to attend their wedding reception, Jaime and Chris are hitting the road to see them! In their hometowns, and often in their living rooms! They also didn’t want to spend a huge chunk of change on one day. Why not spread it out over six weeks, spend lots of time with the people important in their lives and enjoy the drive in between?
So they made a plan, mapped out the 250 people that they’d like to visit, borrowed a 2010 Ford Fusion and hit the road.
Officially, the wedding road trip is a pre-wedding road trip around the country to see friends and family prior to signing a marriage certificate. This trip focuses on learning more about marriage and the commitment therein.
Here are the cities they plan on hitting:
San Francisco, California (started May 26, 2009)
Salt Lake City, Utah
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Copperas Cove, Texas
New Orleans, Louisiana
Tampa Bay, Florida
North Jersey, New Jersey
