DOTD: Blue Band Bride Surprises Husband With ‘Floating Lions’ Routine At Wedding Reception

Weddings are adorable in general, but Penn State weddings are on another level.

Adam and Kelly Dennis had a Penn State wedding on Sunday that would make any Stater swoon. You know the kind, a beautiful ceremony in Happy Valley with a blue-and-white theme and plenty of alumni friends and family. The Dennis’ had one thing, though, that perhaps no Penn State wedding has had before (but is arguably one of the most spirited additions ever): a “Floating Lions” pre-game performance.

Kelly, a former Blue Band Majorette, surprised her new husband Adam, a Blue Band Trumpeter, with a special performance of the band’s famous pre-game show with a number of her fellow Touch of Blue alumni. The reception was surely hype — the performance was the same one that welcomes the football team onto the field on Saturdays.

Check it out for yourself:

According to College Marching Bands, Mr. and Mrs. Dennis met as members of the Blue Band in 2007. Better yet, the couple’s love of the blue and white and even the Blue Band extends through to family members. Both Adam and Kelly have siblings that marched in Blue Band and Kelly’s sister also married a fellow Blue Bander.
