Getting Hitched?

. . . in rural America.

This morning, about a mile down the road from me, they were getting ready for a wedding. A cloth walkway stretched from the singlewide to the arch, chairs were in place for guests, and two John Deere tractors stood ready to witness.

As one who deplores the pretention and waste of many modern weddings (nearly forty years ago, mine consisted of just me, John and the minister), I think this is great!

Too bad more couples don't opt for the meaningful simplicity of weddings like this one.

I wonder if there'll be a tractor pull at the reception?

I know the folks getting married in that house(just for verification it was a DOUBLEWIDE). It was a very classy wedding with 2 wonderful adults who are very much in love. This picture doesn't give their creative idea justice.

You're right—the picture doesn't do it justice, but it's the best shot I could get from the road. Also, from the road, I couldn't tell the residence is a doublewide.

I still think it's a great idea and wish them the best. I love non-traditional wedding ideas. This is the best one I saw all summer.
