How It All Began
So how exactly did these four becomes couples? Well back in 2017, sisters Brittany and Briana Deane attended a festival in Ohio called Twins Days Festival. At the same time, the twin brothers’, Josh and Jeremy were also at the same event. They all said after meeting each other, it was practically love at first sight. Both relationships developed quickly, as it only took a few months for Josh and Jermy to propose. However, this was just the beginning…
What Is Twins Day Festival?
Twins Day Festival is an annual event that is devoted to twins (and other multiples). It takes place in the city of Twinsburg, Ohio, and it is said to be the worlds’s biggest event of its kind. According to the Deanes’ who have been attending the gathering for six years, “its wonderful to go there every year, its truly a magical place”. And this definitely proved to the most perfect and magical place as this is where the whole love story officially began…
We Made A Wish & Two Came True
For most people who were not born a twin or didn’t grow up with a sibling by their side, this is very difficult to understand. Twins kind of just naturally get each other what their duplicate is going through. And it worked the same when it came to dating for both Brittany and Briana. This was really a touchy subject for the twins and came with many challenges. Brittany said “I think that they, “It’s hard when you’re dating someone, and they don’t understand the twin bond.”
Twice Upon A Time
Brittany and Briana were, of course, over the moon, this would be the next huge event they would both be sharing together. Both brides to be said they had no issue planning their upcoming “twice upon a time” wedding. It was also obvious that the two sisters were given the exact same engagement ring by their fiances. The most important thing to them was being married to another set of twins, and what was even more special is their grooms shared the same dream.
The foursome got married in a double fairytale ceremony that was a lifelong dream come true for all of them. To top things off the ceremony was officiated by identical twin ministers. The magical wedding included Brittany and Briana wearing identical dresses and veils, while the grooms sported matching identical tuxedos. There’s no doubt that they all looked smashing!
A Day Of Love
Just by looking at all the beautiful wedding photos, it’s so clear that it was a magical day that was filled with so much love and warmth. Of course, it would not come as a surprise that everything would be very mich identical in all aspects. Not only did they have identical ministers who officiated their ceremony but all of their identical twin guests were asked to wear the same outfits as well. Perhaps this was a bit too extreme?
Of course, the whole day was filled with huge amounts of love, but, it was also filled with many cameras connected to the media. Why? Well, bot sets of twins initially agreed to have TLC film their gorgeous wedding day. The Sayler twins all agreed that their wedding is made into a TV special called, “Our Twinsane Wedding.” It gives viewers the opportunity to get a good insight into the couples’ relationship and all the chaos leading up to the wedding. But that wasn’t it…
All Under The Same Roof
During the time that they were all planning their wedding, they also needed to discuss where they were going to live. After many discussions, both sets of twins came to an exciting agreement that they would all be living together under the same roof. The foursome opted for a home in Virginia but are planning on purchasing a property on the east coast, something that can double as a small hotel as well as a wedding & event venue.
A Complete Whirlwind
Briana stated, “I would say that our first few months of marriage have been a whirlwind of fun and getting used to being married and the four of us living together, that dynamic.” Brittany laughed and then continued to say, “With all four living together under one roof, there’s a lot of double dates,” Brittany laughed, detailing that the married couples, of course, have each gone on dates as individual couples too.
Although the newlyweds are beyond excited about their futures together, what they have in mind may raise many eyebrows. Since day 1 they all did everything together, so why exactly would their couples’ plans shock people so much? Well, part of their future goals of course includes children, but the big question is “how will they raise their kids?”
As expected, especially when the quartet is out in public, they are often bombarded with tons of questions or even worse people impolitely stare at them. Since appearing on their own TV show, they have of course become quite famous, but that hasn’t stopped people from asking odd questions such as, “Are we seeing double”, “Do you ever confused with who is who”, or one of the best is, “Do you switch partners romantically?”
What’s Coming Next?
Briana married Jeremy, while Brittany tied the knot with Josh – all four of them that the chances of marrying an identical twin were very rare. However, Brittany explains the joy she felt when she was not able to marry the man of her dreams but to stand by her best friend while she married the man of her dreams as well. They all planned on raising a family together, no matter how much of a whirlwind it might be, all four of them are determined to make it work!
Both couples have mentioned that they plan to have many kids. But, they intend of raising their families together – as one big, happy family. The newlyweds and their offspring will all be living under one roof, but that’s not all…They hope their children will feel more like siblings than cousins as they technically share DNA, which would make them genetic siblings. Now if that’s not crazy, take a look at this…
The couples excitedly took to Instagram to share their amazing news! Both Briana and Brittany are pregnant! They shared this picture, with the caption, “Guess what!!?? BOTH couples are pregnant! They continued to say that not only will their babies be cousins but full genetic siblings as well.
At the beginning of September, the Salyers Twins posted on Instagram after that had all just enjoyed a picnic together that both Briana and Brittany had the exact same cravings. Isn’t that slightly weird? Well according to them, it’s completely normal. And what were their cravings? They were gum, starbursts, and oddly enough pickles. But as most people know, pregnancy craving can come in all different shapes and flavors.
Time Shall Tell
Now, of course, this story may not be exactly what every person dreams of but that’s ok…each to their own, right? We all have different life goals! And for the Salyers’ this is obviously what keeps them all happy. Regardless, their children will definitely have tons of fun growing up together in the same household. And who knows, maybe there’ll be a few sets of identical twins born along the way…
