8/19/2012 6:01:00 AM Wedding: Butch Meriwether and Chris Marie
Justice of the Peace Pro Tempore Larry Imus conducts the ceremony for Marie and Meriwether while maid of honor Michelle Pesaturo, left, and best man Gary Juneau look on.
They also entered a float called “Team Meriwether – Chris and Butch,” which won the regatta’s Best Overall Decorated Float trophy and the second-place Decorated Super Team Float award. More than 50 people tethered themselves to the float, and Maddog Fitness’ team floated along for the ceremony.
Golden Valley residents Butch Meriwether and Chris Marie were married during the 2012 Bullhead City River Regatta, apparently making them the first couple to get hitched while floating down the Colorado River during the annual event.
