Old fashioned elopement for Blackburn and Cobb

Mr. and Mrs. Jeremy Blackburn.

An old fashioned western romantic elopement took place over Jack-a-lope Days in the quaint town of Douglas, Wyoming. The impetuous groom Jeremy Blackburn proposed to his true love Dacoda Cobb to have a secret wedding ceremony.

The elopement was held at Washington Park on Friday June 1, 2007 at 2 pm. The bride was dressed in her favorite outfit, wrangler jeans and a purple short sleeved western blouse. The groom wore his wranglers and a blue striped western shirt. For tradition, Dacoda borrowed her mom's silver heart Concho earrings, a new silver charm horse bracelet and Jeremy wore his blues.

Magistrate Judge Ray Hoopman married Jeremy and Dacoda and he shared some great experiences from elopement ceremonies in the past. The witnesses were the couple's mothers Deb Cobb and Tonya Skinner.

Dacoda Cobb is the daughter of Edward and Deborah Cobb of Tonopah, Nevada, granddaughter of Jean Mullen and the late Bob Mullen of Glenns Ferry, Idaho. She is a graduate of Tonopah High School, attended Casper College on a livestock judging scholarship for animal science and is currently attending the World Wide Academy of Equine Dentistry in Glenns Ferry, Idaho.

Jeremy Blackburn is the son of Tonya and Tim Skinner of Douglas, Wyoming and Todd and Liane Blackburn of Tonopah, Nevada. He attended school through 11th grade in Tonopah and graduated from Douglas High School and is currently a conductor for the Union Pacific Railroad.

Jeremy and Dacoda will share in the celebration of their union with a charming and simple reception with family and close friends later this summer.
