Couple weds at minister's bedside

LINCOLN, Illinois (AP) -- For better or worse isn't just for the bride and groom at the Rev. Don Hoover's weddings.

The Lincoln minister performed a ceremony from his bed in a hospital emergency room last weekend after a severe leg cramp derailed his appointment at the altar.

"As I laid in the emergency room, we tried to decide who else we could get to do the ceremony. Then the bride and groom arrived and said 'We don't want anyone else to do it,"' said Hoover, pastor of Lincoln Bible Church.

Hoover isn't surprised the couple was so adamant. The bride, Janel Hoover, is his cousin's daughter. Ed Tibbits, the groom, has been a family friend for about seven years.

"We pulled the curtains aside and made room for 10 or 12 people. They weren't dressed up at all -- some wore jeans and others were in sweats. It was a spur of the moment thing," Hoover said.
