Wedding Day rolling

Auburn University is asking Auburn fans for their best memories of rolling the Toomer’s Oaks. Kristi and Dennis Barker have a good one.

“… husband and wife. You may now roll the oaks.”

Someone handed the newlywed Auburn grads a roll—”use it wisely”—as they their way to the AU Hotel & Conference Center for their wedding reception in 1994. So they crossed the street to tie an extra knot with toilet paper at one of the Toomer’s Oaks, which in the caption for the photo capturing the moment published in the 1996 edition of “Auburn: A Pictorial History of the Loveliest Village” was referred to simply as “a tree at the Main Gate on Toomer’s Corner.”
