SPOKANE, Wash. - Marriages are filled with ups and downs, good times and bad ones. So are engagements, apparently. Just days after picking-up stacks of announcements celebrating their engagement, a Spokane couple says more than 30 announcement cards were stolen along with their car on Tuesday night.

Laura Whipple says someone stole her 1995 Honda Civic while she was at the Spokane County Fair with her fiance on Tuesday. The car contained her son's car seat and some of his clothes, but she's most upset about losing stacks of wedding invitations and research for her wedding.

"That's the most sentimental stuff for me," she said. "The rest of the stuff can be replaced."

Whipple got engaged in April and says she spent several hours each week researching wedding venues and designing wedding invitations. She kept the information in a book and binder that was in the car when it was stolen on Tuesday.

"A lot of time and thought went into it," she said.

The couple plans to marry in Spokane next July and says the car theft won't damper their plans.

"I'm not gonna let it get us too down, I mean, it will work out, but I'm hoping to recover the car and the stuff in it," she said.

Anyone with information about the car or possessions in it is asked to call Crime Check at 509- 456-2233.
