Andy Konigsmark and Dodi Darrow are getting married Saturday in North Carolina, and had planned to honeymoon in sunny Cancun.
As you might guess, those plans are shot.
So the groom, a Cobb County native, and his Tar Heel bride, will start married life right here in Atlanta.
Konigsmark, a 1996 graduate of Campbell High School now working as a a missionary Baptist minister in Telluride, Colo., had been working in secret to plan the trip to Mexico. He didn’t even tell his friends, lest someone spill the beans on Facebook.
But with swine flu warnings growing more dire, he knew he’d have to come clean. He told Dodi that he’d intended to take her to Mexico, and that they’d need a Plan B – just days before tying the knot.
Enter Stone Mountain travel agent Rob Kalpak and WSB-AM’s Pete Combs. The newsman called the fly guy the other day for a radio interview on how the deadly flu was impacting travel plans. Kalpak told the young couple’s tale of woe on the radio.
