    That is an amazing story!!! What gorgeous photos, and it’s funny to think how we are so obsessed with every detail of weddings nowadays and they were usually so much simpler back then! Thanks for sharing!

    I love this story! I can’t agree more, the wedding is about the people and celebrating what will hopefully be a wonderful marriage – ultimately the rest won’t matter that much years down the line!

    SO FUN! I love hearing about my parents’ wedding too. No manicures, no real flowers! My mom even made her own dress!

    I love, love, love this. It makes me a little (ok, a lot) sad that both my parents and my boyfriend’s parents are divorced. Hearing stories like this always make me happy, though.

    And, it has to be said, Kelly looks SO much like your mom, and your twin brother looks SO much like your dad! Crazy!

    you are trully one lucky girl to have parents like that. they are certainly awesome role models for relationships that work. i totally agree that it does not matter how, when ane where. i had a beautiful wedding the first time and got divorced and then my second time around i went to the courthouse and have the best marriage ever. thank goodness for do-overs!

    This is freaking adorable! I bet your parents are so proud of you! It’s so refreshing how everything was so simple and really about the love and the meaning of the marriage as opposed to the “fringe” issues, such as decor, etc. Love this!

    Aw, this is adorable. AND, I graduated in 1987, so I’m only 6 years younger than your parents? Yikes. Well, they were young when they got started and I was old when I got started.

    Love this! I’ve also been dying to hear more about my parents’ and Eric’s parents’ weddings! I love that they just did a simple reception…such a good reminder that weddings can be simple, inexpensive, and still lovely!

    My parents will be celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary this year in October also! They met in high school in their junior year as well! Then I came the year following their wedding. Love seeing the old photos. I just got engaged in March so I am all about asking everyone’s proposal and wedding stories as well. What is strange though is that I don’t think there is one couple from my graduating class that stayed together. What happened to high school sweethearts????

      I was actually surprised with just how many couples from my high school graduating class got married. I can think of 5 off the top of my head. πŸ™‚
