June – The month of weddings!

BOURBONNAIS, IL – Did you know that June is the month of weddings? Two of our very own have already celebrated theirs. Congratulations to Brandon & Kaitlyn Chiero and Michael & Nicole Cote on their weddings that took place this past weekend!

A little bit about our employees: Brandon Chiero does a little bit of everything here at Court Street Ford but is currently spending most of his time in the Quick Lane. Nicole Cote is part of our Business Development Center and also works with the service department to help with follow up questions & concerns with customers.

But why June? Well we did a little research on this topic and came up with some interesting little tidbits. Although some say it’s due to the most moderate temperatures of the year for an outdoor event as well as a wide variety of in-season flowers, it actually stems from some very old traditions. Back in the day, having a June wedding meant that a possible Summer pregnancy would still be early enough in the season that a wife could help out with the next year’s harvest.

Long ago, regular bathing wasn’t considered a necessity and was reserved for a once-a-year event that took place at the end of May. Many couples decided to tie the knot in June since they were their most presentable during that month.

The month of June was named after Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage so many Romans married in June to honor their goddess and to be showered with luck and good wishes from the gods.
