Last Saturday, George Couture married his sweetheart Alley Jablonski at Fenway Park. They were supposed to be married during the afternoon. The problem was the Red Sox moved their game against the Oakland A’s to an afternoon start to accommodate fans who wanted to see the Boston Bruins play the Vancouver Canucks that night. So instead of making George and Alley scramble to another site, the Red Sox allowed them to move their wedding until after the game.
Also coming to the rescue was NESN Red Sox in-game reporter Heidi Watney. Little did I know she can preside over weddings and could marry George and Alley as you can see from this video.
I’m amazed that not only can Heidi report and eat food at the same time, she’s also an ordained minister. Holy frijoles.
UPDATE: One note, George and Alley were officially married by a priest that morning so Heidi presided for show.
