1,201 couples renew marriage vows for world record at Western Michigan University

A staggering 1,201 married couples renewed their vows to break a world record at Western Michigan University.

The event Saturday outside the Kalamazoo school’s Heritage Hall featured 1,201 couples renewing their vows in a ceremony officiated by Mayor Bobby Hopewell, a WMU graduate.

The crowd, which included university President John Dunn and his wife, Linda Dunn, surpassed the previous record of 1,087 couples, which was set in 2009 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

“It was a great day to have so many Broncos together at one time to celebrate their love, celebrate their connection to Western and be together,” Renee Pearl, event organizer and director of engagement for WMU.

A Guinness adjudicator was on hand to supervise the attempt and certify the new record.

“As far as we know, this is one of the first large group world records held in Kalamazoo,”  “Plus it’s a great point of pride for our university to have so many Broncos and fans of Broncos to come out and participate.”
