Redneck Wedding

Sheldon, Vermont - September 20, 2008

Bridesmaids dressed in camouflage and groomsmen that smoke and chew -- all part of a self-proclaimed redneck wedding in Sheldon, Vermont.

"That's what my daughter wanted and how could I tell her no?" said Randy Barrows, father of the bride.

The love story began five years ago. Trevor and Crystal Gingras met at the race track, fell in love, and decided to get married. Both enjoy the outdoors and hunting and wanted their wedding to reflect their common interests. "Everything I own is camouflage, so we went with it," said Trevor Gingras, the groom. Unusual wedding plans -- but plans that came as no surprise to their family and friends.

"When she was born she would go trapping with her father and come out on his back and she was carrying two muskrats, and I was like - oh my god! Is this my daughter?" said Diane Barrows, mother of the bride.

Crystal's ring is made of candy. Their car fully decked in camouflage. The perfect ingredients for an unusual celebration -- ingredients mixed in with time tested wedding tradition.

Inside the reception hall,  the decorations were even more elaborate. "All country music, the antler vases, the hanging deer. The hanging deer looks like it's been shot," Crystal Gingras said.

And it was a wedding the couple will cherish for the rest of their lives.
