Mascot Officiates Wedding Held on Football Field Ahead of Indianapolis Colts' Game
Joseph Swaim, 48, and Jennifer Hardey, 39, tied the knot in front of 63,000 people at Lucas Oil Stadium Thursday night.
An Indiana couple proclaimed their love for football — and each other — when they were married on the field ahead of Thursday's Indianapolis Colts game.
Joseph Swaim, 48, and Jennifer Hardey, 39, tied the knot in front of 63,000 people at Lucas Oil Stadium before the Colts took on the Denver Broncos.
The Colts' mascot, Blue — with the help of cue cards read aloud by an announcer — officiated the ceremony.
“It’s still kind of sinking in,” Swaim, who has held season tickets for more than a dozen years, told The Indianapolis Star ahead of the ceremony. “Standing in this stadium right now, I still can’t believe it.”
Hardey’s dad, who is also a die-hard Colts fan, escorted her down the aisle.
Following the ceremony, the team gifted the newlyweds an all-expenses-paid honeymoon to the upcoming Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn.
