For two Alabama fans on Saturday, why not combine the two into one incredibly special day?

Prior to the Tennessee-Alabama clash, a wedding ceremony took place outside of Bryant-Denny Stadium in the tailgating area. A (presumed) Alabama fan dressed as the Pope performed the duties as the officiant.

For this newlywed couple, the perfect wedding present would likely be a Crimson Tide victory over the Volunteers.
