Twenty-five years ago, three couples met several times at Arby's in Statesboro to plan the wedding of Mae Fonda DeLoach and Tony Riggs. After several months, the plans evolved into a double wedding that would include Mae's sister, Juliet DeLoach, and her fiancé, David Lee Smith. The announcement of the double wedding, planned for June 11, 1988, at the Elm Street Church of God in Statesboro, was printed in the Statesboro Herald on March 20, 1988.
