Know someone who married his/her high school sweetheart? This couple met in Auburn, Alabama, and returned there for their nuptials, pictured here in this sweet album from Stephen DeVries. The groom wears midnight-blue suiting, pale green tie, and argyle socks; the bride’s all girly curls and lace in her strapless gown and demure bow-trimmed heels. After a “reveal” in a woodland garden, the couple climb into a natty golf cart and make their way toward their outdoor ceremony site. The groom and his men mug for the camera — no pre-wedding nerves here! — while the bride pauses for a kiss from Mom and Dad. Treats await the guests, wrapped in blue ribbons; a blue “pawprint” dish is the repository for rings; and handy fans help keep everyone cool.

Beneath a floral arbor, the pair say their vows, then march to the strains of a string quartet down a green aisle and into the open-air reception pavilion. Sandwiches and toasts for the guests are crowned with the ultimate treat: a cake that’s shaped like a football stadium — and emblazoned with the Auburn Tigers’ colors! A first romantic dance, a pause to sign the marriage license, and sharing some cake follow; the bride has a ball with her girls dancing around her waving paper fans. As night falls, the guests sing along with the band, the bride tosses her bouquet with gusto, and the groom peeks over his shoulder to see where the garter lands. Then, the sparklers come out: the guests light them up to bid the happy pair goodnight…and the last kiss is done by vivid firelight as the newlyweds start their life together.
