Mari Erin Eason and Robert Lewis Whibley were married on Feb. 29 in an intimate ceremony, performed by the bride’s brother, at their family home in New Market. An open house style reception followed at Hollywood Casino in Charlestown, West Virginia.
Robert and Mari met at a wedding over twenty years ago – Robert’s! (And she was the maid of honor!) Over two decades later Mari looked him up, and things just fell into place. The unique path their lives and relationship have taken dictated a unique day to be wed; hence Leap Day was chosen.
Attending the auspicious and propitious couple included the officiant, Devon Eason (brother of the bride), and Alice (8) and Olivia Grider (10) , daughters of the bride.
After the wedding, Mr. and Mrs. Eason reside in Frederick with their daughters. As Army veterans, both the bride and groom will use their medical education and deployment experience helping other Veterans in need. Also, Mr. Eason plans to salute his wife every day; she outranks him!
