His wife was his college sweetheart?

Well, Dough Hitchner and his wife Jackson dated for a very long time before their marriage in 2011. They were supposedly college sweethearts and their love blossomed so well that they hardly had hitches or complaints.

Talking about their engagement ceremony, the couple had quite an event. Although it is not known when Dough popped the magical question it is assumed that it was at the time when Jackson was working as a reporter for the WFSB News channel. Jackson made no official announcement of their engagement ceremony but she did shock her fans and colleague at work with the huge and beautiful rock she flaunted as her engagement ring and even if Dough and his wife never spoke of how much the ring is worth, there is a general belief that the ring is worth a lot of money.

Towards mid-2011, Dough and his wife dished out their next surprise- their wedding ceremony which was held at Perkasie, Pennsylvania in Bucks County. Unlike what was largely expected, Dough and Hallie had an intimate wedding with only a few of their close friends and family members present.
