Ulrichs say ‘I do,’ again

By on July 20, 2016

On Saturday, July 2, Lititz residents Amy Mozingo and Robert Ulrich were remarried in a self-uniting ceremony held in the gazebo of the Hershey Gardens. Their first marriage was in that same spot on July 1, 1972.

That marriage dissolved, and both went on to other relationships and marriages until decades later when they reconnected through social media and the machinations of mutual friends.

One of those friends, Benjamin Neideigh, opened the ceremonies with a poem entitled “Orbital Mechanics,” that he’d written to commemorate the occasion. Amanda Mozingo, daughter of the bride and Minister in the Church of the Subgenius, blessed the Re-Union.

Jocelyn Alter and Hannah McIntosh, daughters of the groom, held the edges of the couple’s 1977 Colorado divorce decree as Bob and Amy lit it on fire. The flames were extinguished by Curtis Alter, son-in-law of the groom, using a Tweety Bird oven mitt owned by Bob’s late mother, Miriam H. Ulrich. The charred remains will be framed.

To conclude the ceremonies, all of the nearly 50 friends and family members in attendance signed their marriage certificate as witnesses. A reception luncheon at Wasabi Bistro in Hershey followed.

The bride is self-employed as a fashion designer, and the groom is employed as an engineering technician at Clair Global.
