A veil and voting booth
OKLAHOMA CITY — While many of you were out voting on Super Tuesday, one Oklahoma City woman was at the polls too, in her wedding dress. She has a nearly perfect voting record and when she chose her wedding date, she had no idea what significant day it would fall on.
“I think when they planned the date, all she knew is that she wanted to have it on a Tuesday,” the bride’s father, Marc Hader, said. “She always wanted to be different. She didn’t want to have it on a Saturday or Sunday like everyone else.”
And different it was. You can imagine what a sight it was when the then Veronica Hart strutted into her local polling place to vote in a wedding gown.
Later that evening, on Super Tuesday, she got married.
Her parents say she has a nearly perfect voting record.
“I think she might have missed one school board. I mean, every voting, she has only missed one since she was 18,” her mother, Denise Crosswhite Hader said.
And as fate would have it, the day she chose for her wedding several months ago, just so happened to be a primary day.
“I think it was close around December that we started saying that’s Presidential Preference Primary Day,” Denise said.
Veronica and her new husband, Matt, are now in Florida.
Just as Super Tuesday didn’t stop their wedding, their own honeymoon didn’t stop them from sharing their wedding story with us.
“Since we’re political and my family is very political, we thought it would be fun just to take pictures for my wedding book,” 22-year-old Veronica Anderson said.
“Back when she was little bitty she would put the stickers on the signs for us,” her mother said.
And on her special day, you better believe stickers were part of the event.
“It was fun and we liked being out of the ordinary and doing goofy things,” Anderson said.
The couple is in Orlando for their honeymoon and spending time at Disney World.
