Clifton, New Jersey -Two high-school sweethearts in New Jersey returned to the high school hallway where they first met nearly three decades ago, for their wedding over the weekend.

Chris Gash and Jenn Sudol, who first met when they were freshmen at Clifton High School in 1989, were married at their old high school on Saturday.

The ceremony was small, with just family members, and officiated by Clifton mayor James Anzaldi, who says he came out of retirement for this ceremony after he stopped officiating at weddings a few years ago.

Gash’s daughter Lucy said the wedding reminded her of romantic comedy movies she loves to watch. - AP
