One of the most precious things in life is being one of a kind. But you know who would disagree to that? Twins! Yes, it is a strange sight to see two people looking the exact same way in every aspect. You cannot deny the fact that identical twins always seem to turn head wherever they go. Some say they share such a strong bond that if one gets sick, so does the other. In this case, the bond goes beyond just siblings. A pair of twins got married! And to make things even more unbelievable, they end up doing something truly worth reading…
1. A Twin Marriage
So as we have mentioned, identical twins always share an unbreakable bond. So when this pair of identical twins met each other, it was like a movie script. They fell for each other and soon became inseparable. So after dating for while identical twin sisters Brittany and Briana Deane tied the knot with identical twin brothers Josh and Jeremy Salyers, respectively.
2. A Unique Wedding
To say that their wedding was like any ordinary one would be a total lie. This was certainly not your average wedding. However, there was something unusual that took place keeping aside two sets of twins marrying each other. So what could it be? It was the announcement of their future plans that really made people talking. So what could this attractive foursome be announcing?
3. Many Things In Common
There was something about the Deane twins and the Salyers twins that were really special that they all were unaware about. It turned out, they already had a lot of things in common back before they even met each other. Both of their folks have a very funny name that they gave to their respective kid. It all began with the exact same letter of the alphabet it started in.
4. 2+2 Makes 4
So even before getting to know each other, each of their parents already has something in common set for them which is indeed rare. However, putting the names behind and jokes aside, no one could have predicted their future, There was nobody that could have fathomed that one day these two twosomes would actually add on to become an incredible foursome.
5. Meeting Place
So even the way they met was quite a story to tell. The duo couple met at a very unique event. An event that you could say was meant, just for them. The quartet actually met with each other at the Twin Days Festival back in the year 2017. This was an annual event, that would be held in the city of Twinsburg, Ohio. This is also reportedly the world’s biggest convention made for twins and others born in multiples.
6. The Perfectly Unusual Event
Who would have imagined that not just one counterpart but both of these twins would hit it off smoothly? They just attended the event to have fun without the intention of falling in love with anyone. You can even say that this festival was actually the perfect place to meet someone suitable for you if you were born as twins or more. If you like twins, this was definitely the place to be…
7. Since Childhood
As little girls, the twins would always dream of finding their knight in shining armor, their prince charming. They had always dreamt of having another twin that would fit with them perfectly. So the twin sisters Brittany and Briana in a way got to have a taste of their happily-ever-afters like they had always wished for. Another set of identical twins were waiting for them all along…
8. A Dream Come True
Talking about just how lucky and happy they are to have met the men of their dreams, this is what the twins told interviewers. “It’s really been a fairytale come true,” Briana revealed when asked about how they felt abut falling in love with another set of twins. This was for an interview back in August 4, 2018. “Marrying twins is something that’s very important to us,” she added.
Like most girls, the twins had always dreamed of getting swept off of their feet, to fall for someone who makes them happy and complete. However, for them, it was always a mutual thought and never an individual dream. Briana told interviewers and spoke about the fact that from a young age she and her twin had envisioned a future of this kind to hopefully to them.
10. Ever Since Kindergarten
They were not shying away from the fact that they got exactly what they wanted. The happiness was clear in their eyes that this was no doubt what the twins had been dreaming about ever since they were just toddlers. To prove this Briana confessed, “Even when we were little girls I can remember being in kindergarten, knowing that this is what we saw for ourselves.”
11. As A Pair
Like they say, to be a twin, is like having two versions of you. So just imagine the kind of connection you would share with the other twin? Only twins will ever get to enjoy such a blessing. Also, ever since they were little, Briana and Brittany had always been interested in keeping and exploring their twinness as much as they could. They loved being together and doing all the things as a pair.
12. Two In One
Growing up together, Briana and Brittany had done many ‘twinny’ things. Things that only twins would be able to do. They have donned on similar clothing and the two have even been on double dates as well. Just imagine going on a double date with identical twins? It would be so easy to get confused for their poor dates! Basically, you could say the twins were one person split into two.
13. Josh And Jeremy
To make matters even weirder, even the male twins Josh and Jeremy were not so different from the girls. If you ask the sisters about the two boys, they will tell you that they had promised to tie the knot with then based solely on one condition. They would only do it if they found their opposite-sex counterparts as in identical twin girls that were perfect for them. Such a unique condition, right?
14. Their Life Goal
Josh and Jeremy were so set on finding twins for themselves that it was actually a life goal for them. And it was even more serious than you could have ever imagined. It actually dictated their love life and the way they set their future too. “If they couldn’t find identical twin girls that matched up well with them, they were never getting married,” Brittany revealed.
15. Dating Different
So from all that we have gathered, it would seem as though dating would be quite the challenge for both sets of twins. It would have been a little trickier for them because of their preferences. So indeed the two sets had some issues finding love with non-twins as mentioned by Brittany. “I think that they experienced a lot of the same challenges dating what we call singletons, that means non-twins,” she explained.
16. A Blessing And Curse
Like we have mentioned, twins always have an unexplainable link with each other that some could even claim as magical. It is something that the rest of us would have to keep wondering as it might never happen to us. But this bond comes with a drawback as explained by Brittany. “It’s hard when you’re dating someone and they don’t understand the twin bond,” she said, when talking about this.
17. Unexplainable Bond
Each of us love our sibling and we share a close bond with one another. We love them unconditionally but it appears that the bond shared between twins is something else, something way deeper. Even though it may not be fair, there are some things that people who share a womb have that we will never get. So even though Brittany has pure intentions, her words clearly reveal that twins undoubetdly share a stronger bond.
18. Someone Special
They are indeed lucky to have each other to go through things in life as a duo. They can share their heartbreaks and celebrations together. While we must have a sibling and close friends, we cannot compare what we have built with something that twins share since conception! So it must be crucial to have somebody with whom you can connect with about everything.
19. At The Event
So what happened at the event then? Well, both the sets of twins noticed each other. As soon as they laid eyes on one another at the Twin Days Festival in 2017, there was an instant spark between them. It was something unexpected as the twins did not expect to find the love of their lives there at the event. Brittany and Briana were frequent attendees at the event too…
20. Almost Giving Up
However, for the guys, it was a new experience. Josh and Jeremy had not been to the event and were actually newbies. Also, the boys almost headed back home after unsuccessfully finding any good matches for them. Since they did not meet girls they wished to marry and see a future with, they almost gave up on the event. And on the last day of this event, the four of them finally met by chance.
21. First Encounter
After looking for years to find the men they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with, just imagine how happy the twins must have been when they finally met the boys. According to Briana, the time that they met with the guys was something her mind will never ever forget. “I remember vividly the first time Brittany and I saw Josh and Jeremy at the twins festival,” she recalled.
22. Like A Movie Scene
Ever seen those romantic movies where the boy and girl meet for the first time and sparks fly and everything goes into slow motion? Well, this is what Briana referred to when she spoke about meeting with her future husband for the first time. “I also remember the first time we all spoke the last night of the festival. It’s sort of like everything was in slow motion,” she explained excitedly.

28. The Big Challenge
The wedding plans seemed to go smoothly and everyone was happy with what they planned on. But like every wedding, there is bound to be some obstacle that needs to be worked around.
