Television writer Bill Walker and corporate financial manager Kelly Ziegler, All Saints Church parishioners who met at the church and had a commitment ceremony (they call it a family blessing) there in 2001, plan to get married as quickly as possible.
“We’ve gone before God. It’s just the state we’ve been waiting on,” said Walker, who is planning another small ceremony at the couple’s home. “All the neighbor ladies want to throw it for us,” he explained.
Being able to marry is especially important to the couple because they have a 7-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son.
“We both came from close families and really wanted a family,” said Walker. “Our friends say we’re the most old-fashioned couple they know. We feel ridiculously happy for this decision. We feel like we got it all.”
