FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — Call off the wedding. Spotsylvania County has imposed “special use permit” restrictions on a couple that’s been hosting marriages for years — effectively nullifying future nuptials at a once-thriving business.
Gary Gratopp, co-owner of Eden Try, said the county crackdown “defies logic.”
Yet the move resembles actions in nearby Fauquier County, where officials are employing permitting requirements to harass and intimidate private-property owners.
