A Tennessee couple has set a world record for the most times saying “I do” in vow renewal ceremonies.
The Today Show reports that Lauren and David Blair of Henderson, Tennessee, have married each other 109 times since their first wedding on May 6, 1984, in Topanga Canyon, California, near the couple’s home at the time. However, David’s parents were unable to make it to the ceremony, so they had a repeat performance the following day in Chicago. Then, just for fun, the two said “I do” again while on their honeymoon in Las Vegas.
Since then, they’ve gotten hitched at Graceland’s Chapel in the Woods in Memphis, Tennessee, at a Hard Rock Cafe in Honolulu, Hawaii, and on the set of “Romeo and Juliet” at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville.
“We were both in long-term relationships in the past that didn’t work out,” Lauren told the Huffington Post in 2011, after the couple’s 100th wedding. “We knew we were meant for each other and wanted to continually share that vow experience. I love to look into David’s eyes as he is repeating his vows. I know that this man will love me until the day I die.”
The Blairs say that their vow renewals symbolize their eternal commitment to love and care for each other. Although most married couples don’t say “I do” more than once, many of us know just what it feels like to want to be with that special person until death do us part.
