SOMERSET, Ky. (LEX 18) – A Pulaski County couple took their UK fandom to a whole new level this weekend during their wedding ceremony.
Devan and Randall Smith were married Saturday at the First Baptist Church in Somerset. When they discovered that UK would face Wofford in the Sweet Sixteen during their ceremony, they knew they would have to give their family the opportunity to cheer on the cats while they stood at the altar, by turning the game on television screens in the sanctuary.
“It was a mixture of everything. I think some kind of picked their head up a little bit during the ceremony, but I think overall, most of them were watching us,” Randall told LEX 18.
The couple is on their honeymoon in Gatlinburg but say they will be back in time to watch the cats play Friday night.
