Utah Family's Big Day: 4 Brides, 4 Grooms, 1 Wedding Reception

The mother of the four siblings who shared a wedding ceremony recently wishes her children would coordinate the births of their children as well.

The quadruple nuptials originally started as Meagan Fortney's brainchild. The 19-year-old Utah woman started thinking back in January that she and her two sisters — 23-year-old Grace and Jessica — should combine their weddings into one ceremony.

At the last minute, they decided to try and get their brother, 21-year-old Marcus, to join in.

"Yeah, we kind of just jumped in there," Marcus Fortney said in an interview on the "Today" show this week, "but we’re all happy about it."

The Fortney wedding extravaganza married off four of the family's six children in separate services under the umbrella of one ceremony, and then also included a joint reception.

"It was a wonderful opportunity to attend each one of the children’s weddings, and the siblings were able to attend each other’s wedding as well," dad Kevin Fortney told Today.com. "And so to sit and watch each one of your children be married and then to have their brothers and sisters there, it was a great experience."

Though planning the four siblings' joint wedding was stressful, it was well worth it.

"You first think, 'Man, that’s great,' and then the wave comes and it blows you over and you’re being tossed around in the sand," Kevin Fortney said. "And you stand up at the end and you realize you’re just grateful to have your dignity because your suit is still on."
"That’s sort of what it felt like. You just go, 'Oh my gosh,' and you just get through it."
