I’ve been to a few shotgun weddings in my life time. Usually there are just a handful of people there, mainly immediate family. Its usually a bit awkward, everyone in the room can see the sweat on the forehead of the bridegroom and the worried look of the bride.
The term “shotgun wedding” dates back to the good old days, when a couple was forced to marry due to an unplanned pregnancy.
When I found these photos at a yard sale of this young couple’s wedding, I was intrigued. I began to wonder the story behind them.
I wonder where they are now, if they are still together. I wonder if being an interracial couple had anything to do with having a court wedding. Oh the drama.
What ever the reason was, these two sure loved each other. 🙂
