Chris Litton and Emily Sipe
Eagle River’s Chris Litton will wed Emily Sipe, of Newnan, Ga., on June 29, 2012 at Dunaway Gardens in Newnan.
The bride is the daughter of Wayne and Helen Sipe. She is a 2009 graduate of Trinity Christian School in Sharpsburg, Ga. She completed her freshman and sophomore years of college at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla., before continuing her education in Minnesota, where she is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree. She plans to earn a master’s in guidance counseling and currently works at the Disney Store in the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn.
The groom is the son of Steve and Debi Litton of Eagle River. He is a 2008 graduate of Chugiak High school and completed his first two years of college at Southeastern University and his junior year at North Central University in Minneapolis. Next year he plans to continue working toward his degree in media communications with a focus on journalism at Brown University in Minneapolis. He currently works at the Mall of America.
The couple were engaged on Dec. 30, 2010. Chris surprised Emily by proposing as soon as he got off his flight from Washington. He dropped on one knee in the crowded Atlanta airport terminal, completely surprising Emily. Onlookers clapped and cheered when Emily said yes and put her engagement ring on her finger.
The couple met through mutual friends in the Fall of 2009 while attending Southeastern University.
