Football Wedding Held At Louisville Tailgate Is Spirited And Sweet (VIDEO)

For sports fans, the number one rule of fall weddings is that they must not coincide with the all-important college football games.

But two University of Louisville fans, Vonnie Evans and Jeff Miller, found a way to get married on a Saturday in September without violating this rule -- by tying the knot at a tailgate.

The couple held the wedding outside Papa John's Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky on Sept. 21. They had a Louisville-themed cake and road off on a motorized cooler instead of a more traditional getaway car

"Actually, [this] was my idea," Evans told local news station WLKY. "I said, 'Honey, let's get married while we're tailgating. And he was like, 'That's cool!'"
