Gov. John Hick­en­looper will marry his fi­ancée, Robin Pringle, in a small pri­vate cer­e­mony on Satur­day.

The 63-year-old Demo­crat pro­posed to Pringle, 37, dur­ing the Christ­mas hol­i­day af­ter dat­ing her for more than a year.

“It’s go­ing to be a tiny lit­tle ser­vice,” Hick­en­looper said.

“We are try­ing to low-key the wed­ding just be­cause we have two choices,” the gov­er­nor ex­plained. “This is the one week­end in the space of a cou­ple months that we could get hitched.

“Or if we wait three or four months, then we’d end up hav­ing a gi­gan­tic wed­ding that would be 500 peo­ple or 600 peo­ple.”

The cou­ple opted for the smaller op­tion.

“An oc­ca­sion like that should be some­thing that’s pow­er­ful and in­ti­mate, so that’s what we de­cided to do: seize the mo­ment and do it on very short-term. Most of the peo­ple are go­ing to be from out of town and very few peo­ple lo­cal,” he added, de­clin­ing to of­fer fur­ther de­tails.

This is the gov­er­nor’s se­cond mar­riage. Hick­en­looper and his first wife, au­thor He­len Thorpe, di­vorced af­ter 10 years of mar­riage.
