Everybody who’s ever met, dated, married a significant other has a unique story of how their relationship came to be. However, the situation surrounding a pair of identical twins that ultimately courted and tied the knot recently is one for the books.
Identical twin brothers Josh and Jeremy Salyers first met identical twin sisters Brittany and Briana Deane at the 2017 Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio. Apparently, this is a real event, and already I’m out of my depth.
Brittany and Briana had been attending the event for years…
Josh and Jeremy, on the other hand, were walking into the festival for the very first time.
According to Briana, “I remember the first time we all spoke the last night of the festival. It’s sort of like everything was in slow motion.”
Both couples got engaged on the 2nd of February (a.k.a. Groundhog Day)
But according to Briana, this was all…part of the plan. She told People, “It’s really been a fairy tale come true. Marrying twins is something that’s very important to us.”
Brittany added, “Even when we were little girls I can remember being in kindergarten, knowing that that is what we saw for ourselves.”
Brittany continued: “We knew that the chances were incredibly scarce. The stars had to align for our dreams to come true. I get to marry the man of my dreams and at the same time I get to look over next to me and see my twin sister marrying the man of her dreams.”
The ceremony was held at the same place where they met, the Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg.
Keeping on theme, the brides wore matching dresses while the grooms donned identical tuxedos. You get the picture.
The theme of the wedding was “Twice Upon a Time,” with identical twin ministers officiating the wedding.
The whole fam gathers around.
The “Twedding” went without a hitch.
“If they couldn’t find identical twin girls that matched up well with them, they were never getting married,” Brittany exclaimed. “I think that they experienced a lot of the same challenges dating what we call singletons, that means non-twins. It’s hard when you’re dating someone and they don’t understand the twin bond.”
As if the whole scenario wasn’t unique enough (or strange?), the newlyweds also plan on living together in the same house where they will all raise their children together. OK??
As you can imagine, the story caught the eye of the internet, and people had some similar thoughts about the newlyweds…
