Expectations for the wedding night are high. The goal is to have the best sex of your life in the swankiest hotel room you’ve ever stayed in — all while managing to keep your eyes open after an exceedingly exhausting day.
Close siblings share everything with one another: their joys, sorrows, support…and in the case of the Fortney family, even their wedding day!
Sisters Grace (23), Meagan (23), and Jessica (19), and brother Marcus (21) all tied the knot to their respective spouses on June 14. They each had their own half-hour ceremony at the St. George Utah Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, followed by a joint reception at a local ballroom with around 1,000 guests (yep, you read that right).
12. Sailor marries high school sweetheart in Reno Airport
After being stationed overseas in Syria, Navy sailor Dylan Ruffer couldn’t stand to waste another moment being apart from Madison Meinhardt — they wanted to get married right away. When he landed at Reno-Tahoe International Airport on Nov. 19th, he was shocked to realize that his wish had been granted.
His fiancée planned a surprise wedding with the help of airport employees, who were so touched by the couple’s story that they even decorated the reception area for them (which was held at the baggage claim), complete with catering, a cake and a DJ.
11. Marine’s sky-high wedding “toast”
Matthew Krivohlavy, currently deployed overseas, couldn’t attend his brother’s wedding in Austin, Texas, so the Marine pilot did the next best thing — he taped a video “toast” from the cockpit of his Harrier jet.
Like any fabulous wedding toast, he mentioned how special both the groom and bride (Mandy Takacs) are to him, and he offered memorable wedding advice. At the end of the video, he does a 360-degree roll in the sky!
10. Everyone makes a list of things to pack
Have you spent hours creating those programmers/fans? Did you create your own photo booth? Have you hand-crafted several ornate decorations that you plan to hang onto for several years? You’d be amazed at what people leave on site and forget to collect, simply because they think someone else has arranged to bring these keepsakes back.
I’ married with one child and I met my husband when I was very young. We both worked together, and I didn’t like him at 1st, but he still pursued me. He was tall and skinny, just not my type. I was friends with some of his family, so we started hanging out, and things progressed. Of course, he lied about having a girlfriend but I was young and dumb.
