New couple chosen for Oktoberfest wedding after first couple backs out

NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Officials with Oktoberfest Newport had to find a couple to get married on Saturday after the first couple chosen backed out.

The German-style wedding will take place Saturday night, Sept. 29, all expenses paid.

The public is invited to attend the wedding of Holly and Josh, and then witness several other couples renew their vows.

The couple who was originally chosen to participate in the wedding has broken up. A post was made on Oktoberfest Newport's Facebook page on Sept. 22 saying the couple was no longer getting married. Oktoberfest officials chose Holly and Josh on Wednesday.
