Childhood sweethearts to wed

Staff Writer
Aledo Times Record

After on-again-off-again dating since the fifth grade, Michael Eli Sloan-McNall and Ashley Marie Rankin-Hess have finally decided to stop pretending that they could be remotely interested in other people and concluded it was time to buckle down and mate for life....aka... get hitched.

This hilariously, gifted, talented couple is originally from the spunky small town of Aledo, but couldn't resist taking their fun-filled lives to the big, crazy town of Moline where they reside. Eli got his cheap education from Augustana College in business administration and finances while Ashley got her expensive degree from Western Illinois University in the crazy field of special education.

Eli and Ashley will be hitched in Davenport, Iowa at the Clarion Hotel at half past four in the afternoon on the first of October two thousand and eleven. The reception will follow with plenty of dancing and memorable moments that guests will talk about for years to come. The reception will be open to family and friends after eight in the evening.
