George W. and Laura Bush
How They Met: George Bush and Laura Welch lived in the same town, Midland, Texas, growing up, and even attended the same junior high one year. The Bushes moved away, however, and the pair only really connected at a barbeque in 1977 when they were introduced by mutual friends. They had both moved to Houston after high school and were even living in the same building. Laura described their lives as "parallel." The two married three months later.
The Wedding: Nov. 5, 1977, Glass Chapel of the First United Methodist Church in Midland. The pair's wedding took place in the church where Laura had been baptized, and was small, simple and intimate. The couple was the last of their friends to marry, and so chose an understated style for their wedding.
The Honeymoon: Cozumel, Mexico
