A bit more of a crowd than usual is expected for Laurel Krahn’s and Kevin Austin’s wedding on September 17. They plan to be married with 82 other couples on the field at Metrodome Stadium in Minneapolis.
Couples qualified for this radio promotion by writing a letter telling why they wanted to be married on the field. The Rev. Gary Gottfried from the Chapel of Love at the Mall of America will preside over the ceremony, with Twins Hall of Famer Tony Oliva on hand to serve as a celebrity witness and sign the marriage licenses.
All the couples are going to recite their vows in unison during a civil ceremony to be held 45 minutes before the Minnesota Twins game. For all the plans, see their their website.
Laurel knows she’s ready: “The cool part is how sure I am about everything. I’ve been in love before and thought I was sure before, but there’s a certainty this time and a degree of comfort that I never had before. This is it.”
