SENECA, Pa.-- A Virginia couple has gotten their married life rolling at a northwestern Pennsylvania roller skating rink.
Twenty-four-year-old Shelly Everett and 23-year-old Travis Rodgers met as preteens at the Seneca Skating Rink, where they were married Wednesday. Everett wore a traditional gown and traded a "first dance" with her new husband for a "first skate" instead. Everett graduated from nearby Oil City High School, while Rodgers went to Franklin High School, both about 70 miles north of Pittsburgh.
Rodgers tells The Derrick of Oil City that instead of a standard church wedding, they wanted to do "something special."
The couple is returning to Virginia Beach, Va. where Rodgers is stationed in the Navy and expects to be deployed overseas later this year. Their first child is due in September.
