“It wasn’t the wedding most people dream about, that’s for sure. At some point, you just had to laugh about the whole situation. The fireplace wasn’t working, our two-year-old was on the floor crying, I had on jeans and T-shirt. None of our family was there. If anybody cried, it wasn’t out of happiness.”
– Columbus’ Anton Stralman on his rush wedding to new-wife Johanna in October. The two planned on tying the knot in two years, but had to have an earlier ceremony so Johanna and their two kids could obtain a U.S. visa and live together.
