I guess I had it wrong all this time!
I always thought that the saying was "love is blind", but I guess that it should be "love is in the blind"!
I can't fault the couple for getting married in such pleasant surroundings. I mean, you have trees and birds singing and gentle breezes...just the kind of setting that's so pleasant for true nature lovers.
Plus, neither of them was armed! That's a good start!
Camo-wearing bowhunters marry in tree
ANAMOSA, Iowa — An Iowa couple whose passion for bowhunting encouraged Cupid's arrow to strike wore camouflage to blend in with the wooded backdrop at their treetop wedding.
Forty-two year-old Kim Silver dressed in a silk gown made by camouflage specialists Mossy Oak, and her 61-year-old groom, Marvin Hunter, was dressed in camo shirt and pants at the Saturday nuptials.
They said their vows atop a tree stand hunting platform at the Anamosa Bowhunters Archery Club in the state's northeast. The bride and groom occasionally punctuated the ceremony by firing arrows at targets.
Hunter said the couple had always joked about getting married on a tree stand. Silver said the pair hunt together so much that the camo wedding "just seemed like the right thing to do."
I can only imagine what the wedding shower must have been like. I'm thinking the cake and the gifts must have been something to behold!
Do you suppose tat they spent their honeymoon in the same hunting blind they used for the wedding? Good way to break in that new double sleeping bag, don't ya think?
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit in the hunting blind...I mean, the kitchen!
