Plymouth natives get Valentine’s Day wedding at Empire State Building in N.Y.

Two Plymouth natives made up one of three lucky couples who had a Valentine’s Day wedding at New York’s Empire State Building after winning a contest on the famous skyscraper’s Facebook page.

Plymouth resident John Kelly and his fiancee Kari Morey, of Yorktown, Va., won their wedding by submitting a video telling their love story. In it, Morey talked about how the couple has known each other for 36 years after growing up together in Plymouth. The two had been friends in elementary school, but there was never any spark. He was the “scrawny boy next door” and she was the “goodie-goodie,” Morey said.

The two went their separate ways, with Kelly joining the Army and getting married and Morey getting married and becoming a nurse. After 23 years, the two reconnected over Facebook. He asked her to a Wounded Warriors event on Veteran’s Day, and the rest was history, she said.

“Since the moment it started,” Morey said in the video, “I knew he was the man for me.”

The couple’s wedding featured a fall-themed ceremony and winter-themed reception. Mr. and Mrs. Kelly posed for photos on the 86th-floor observation deck after the ceremonies.
