As Shalee’s bridal party made their entrance in the gold lot, John Denver’s sweet and wholesome voice began crooning “Almost heaven, West Virginia.”
In fact, everything from the wedding party’s attire to the flowers, cake and decorations boasted their Mountaineer pride. The couple even said their “I do’s” under an arch decorated with blue-and-gold ribbons.
Although it rained on and off throughout the crisp, windy day, the skies were clear while Scott Shumiloff and Shalee Nash tied the knot before the homecoming game between WVU and Kansas.
About 100 guests witnessed the matrimony at 9 a.m. on Oct. 4. The wedding was followed by a tailgate full of chicken wings, chicken, sweet and sour kielbasa, beer and cookies.
Shortly before the game ended, Scott and Shalee were picked up from the stadium in a limo, which took them to their hotel in Bridgeport.
