Grimme-Martel vows said Dec. 7 in Texas


Erin Elizabeth Grimme and Ron Gil Martel were united in marriage Dec. 7, 2017, at Northminster Presbyterian Church, San Antonio, Texas. Rev. Bob Weston officiated the 1:30 p.m. ceremony.

The bride’s brother, Eric Grimme, and the groom’s brother, Don Martel, served as ushers.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held in the reception hall of the church. The non-traditional style event featured BBQ and an ice cream dessert bar, and was more like a family reunion with friends and loved ones.

Erin is the daughter of Alan and Wendy Grimme of Eldridge. Ron is the son of Ronald and Donna Martel of San Antonio.

Erin graduated from North Scott High School in 1999, and from Clarke University, Dubuque, in 2002. She is serving in the U.S. Air Force, and has been a flight medic for 15 years.

The couple currently resides in Mascoutah, Ill., where Erin is stationed at Scott Air Force Base. They will be relocated later in the year to a destination yet to be determined.
