Vols fans host 'tailgate wedding' before season opener

Posted: Updated:
KNOXVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The University of Tennessee Volunteers dominated Utah State in their opening game Sunday, but for one couple, the biggest victory happened before the game even started.

Ashley Armes and Daniel Dickson were married in the middle of the tailgate section at the Neyland Stadium parking lot.

Instead of a dress, the bride wore a white UT jersey underneath her orange checkerboard overalls. The groom wore an orange T-shirt, blue jeans and a ball cap.

Armes said the concept of a "tailgate wedding" started as a joke, but they liked the idea so much, they ran with it.

The newlyweds plan to spend their honeymoon in Florida.
