A couple of weeks ago we were commissioned by The New York Times to document a winter wedding we will never forget.
Dorothy and Charlie, both of whom are in their 80s, fell in love after losing both their spouses. The two had met through their involvement with the Winter Carnival in St. Paul, a two-week festival celebrating winter. Dorothy had been queen when she was in her 20s and Charlie, a king when he was younger. The two remained involved in the royal festivities for the last 50 years. When Charlie and Dorothy started talking about getting married, fellow kings and queens mentioned getting married at the carnival itself.
And so it was. A beautiful winter wedding for a king and queen. Hundreds of carnival goers and decades of Winter Carnival royalty witnessed their wedding right in the middle of the park.
