A couple gets married at the bowling alley: “The first place that came to mind” | Local News

When Paul and Jamie Caver recently decided to wed after a four-year engagement, they originally planned to go to the Hardin County government building to say “I do.”

When they realized that was no longer an option there, Jamie suggested a place they had called home for years – B&B Lanes in Elizabethtown.

The couple married on Friday with Hardin County Magistrate Doug Goodman officiating.

“I love bowling and being out there and David and Tonya (Taylor) are like family to me,” Jamie said. “We had to choose a spontaneous place, and I just thought about bowling. It’s really the first place that came to mind.

So on Friday, as a family at the bowling alley, they tied the knot after being together for about eight years.

“It was just a good place to go, and it’s just a nice place with all the renovations,” Paul said of the Elizabethtown bowling alley.

The couple met through friends and around this time Jamie went to work bowling working in the kitchen.

She loved working there so much that she started there part-time and then made it her full-time job.

“I pretty much run the bar front, but you can see me there doing all kinds of other things,” she said.

They had planned to get married on July 1, but when they found out they couldn’t get married at the government center, another venue had to be found.

“I had a little time to think about it, but bowling is the first thing that came to mind,” Jamie said.

The couple live in Radcliff with Paul from Elizabethtown and Jamie from Vine Grove.

After a long engagement, Jamie said Paul once said, “Do you want to get married? And I said, “Yeah, I love you. Let’s get married.”

B&B Lanes co-owner David Taylor said Friday’s wedding was a bowling first.
