Identical twin sisters Brittany and Briana Deane,32, got married to identical twin brothers Josh and Jeremy Slayers, 34, at the Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio on Saturday.
The ceremony, which was themed ‘Twice Upon a Time,’ saw the twin girls tying the knot to identical twin brothers side-by-side and were even married by identical twin ministers.
From their makeup and hair to the veils and gowns, everything looked the same.
“It’s really been a fairy tale come true.Marrying twins is something that’s very important to us. Even when we were little girls I can remember being in kindergarten, knowing that that is what we saw for ourselves. ” Briana told PEOPLE.
“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.” Brittany added.
Even Josh and Jeremy always wanted to marry twins. They vowed they wouldn’t say ‘I do’ unless they fell in love with identical sisters.
“If they couldn’t find identical twin girls that matched up well with them, they were never getting married.
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. ” Brittany says.
The couples first met last year at the annual festival which Brittany and Briana have been attending for years. They met Josh and Jeremy on the final day of the twin gathering.
“A lot of the wedding planning was extremely fun and even peaceful for Brittany and I to do together because we have the same taste.We had the same vision of what our double wedding day would look like. We work well together and I would say the hardest part is planning everything across state lines because none of us live in Twinsburg, Ohio.
” Briana told PEOPLE.
Now the couples are very much excited to live in the same house and raise their children together.
“When we have children, my and Josh’s children will be genetic siblings to Briana and Jeremy’s children. Even though they’re cousins, they’re technically genetic siblings. We imagine it will be like two moms and two dads all raising our families together.” Brittany says.
