Camo-wearing bowhunters marry in tree
ANAMOSA, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa couple whose passion for bowhunting encouraged Cupid's arrow to strike, wore camouflage to blend in with the wooded backdrop at their treetop wedding.
Forty-two year-old Kim Silver dressed in a silk gown made by camouflage specialists Mossy Oak, and her 61-year-old groom, Marvin Hunter, was dressed in camo shirt and pants at the recent nuptials.
They said their vows atop a tree stand hunting platform at the Anamosa Bowhunters Archery Club in the state's northeast. The bride and groom occasionally punctuated the ceremony by firing arrows at targets.
Hunter said the couple had always joked about getting married on a tree stand. Silver said the pair hunt together so much that the camo wedding "just seemed like the right thing to do."
