Here’s some good news for Corvette enthusiasts still reeling after last week’s shocking sinkhole collapse inside the National Corvette Museum.
You might call this one a match made in Corvette heaven.
Since Paul and Vance Thompson met in the first place because of their love of Corvettes, it was only fitting that they sealed the deal with a Corvette-themed wedding on Saturday.
As the sound of bells filled the air, the couple emerged from the Bridal Path Chapel in Donelson, Tennessee, just outside Nashville not too far from Bowling Green.
Outside the lovely white chapel, the newlyweds posed for photos next to their own Corvettes – a crystal red C6 coupe that appeared to be “kissing” another crystal red C6 convertible.
Seven other Corvettes belonging to family and friends were also parked outside the chapel where the Clarksville, Tennessee couple said their vows.
Vance, 50, pointed out that she has loved Corvettes since she was a child and was glad to see so many ‘Vettes were able to make it for the wedding. She also was happy to see so many of her friends from the Corvette club in Clarksville also were there, cars or not.
“I thought there might be snow or ice or be too cold for the dresses,” she said. “But it all worked out.”
