No. 9: Connecticut

Weddings in Connecticut cost $35,197. Here, newlywed Kris Thompson jumps into the arms of her husband Rob after knocking down bowling pins during their bowling-alley wedding reception at Blue Fox Rock'n Bowl in Simsbury. The two called their reception "The Thompson Tournament of Love." The groom wore a bowling-themed tuxedo shirt and the bride wore a tierra, and white heels with her bowling shirt.Tia Ann Chapman/The Hartford Courant
