NEW HAVEN – They called it a vow renewal ceremony after 31 years of marriage, but when John and Brenda Adkins re-tied the knot over the weekend, it felt like their first real wedding.

At their original ceremony in 1992, both were fresh off drug addiction and married in borrowed clothes, with used earrings as rings and leftover cake from a friend’s wedding on their plates, they said.

“It wasn’t easy getting to where we are. We’ve had so many obstacles, ”said bride Brenda Adkins. “It feels like our first wedding because now we’re able to do what we wanted to do the first time.”
