CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Imagine getting a call on your honeymoon saying that your wedding was really legal!
It happened to a pair of couples in Chattanooga back in 1991.
And one of them was radio personality Parker Smith and his new bride.
This is the confusion that happened when a former County Commissioner just tried to do the couples a favor.
Howard Sompayrac had married 400 couples during his time as an active commissioner.
But the rules were different after he left office, but stayed at the county courthouse.
