Robert Ingersoll and his partner, Curt Freed, of Kennewick are planning their September wedding as a small, tasteful affair for close friends and family. "We're private people -- low key," Ingersoll told the Herald. "It's going to be very easy and casual. ... A white-linen-shirts-and-khaki-pants kind of event." It seemed natural to the couple as they made plans that they'd use Arlene's Flowers in Richland as their florist. After all, they've bought flowers there during their entire nine-year romance.
