Feb. 2 is going to be quite memorable for Shawna Cook and her family.
Not only is her favorite team, the Seattle Seahawks, playing in the Super Bowl, Cook will be tying the knot to her fiancee just minutes after kickoff.
When Cook realized the conflict, she emailed her husband-to-be because she couldn't handle the look on his face if she told him in person.
Cook told King 5 News that her friends were shocked and her cousins requested a big screen television at the wedding. She assured them that there'll be a 60-inch TV for them to watch the game. The game starts at 3:30 p.m. PT and the ceremony is at 4 p.m.
Of the 70 family members and friends who are invited to the wedding, only one cancelled upon learning of the Super Bowl conflict.
"We are commemorating the most awesome event in our life with the most awesome event in Seattle life," Cook said. "As soon as the ceremony is over, it is going to be Seahawks central for the next hour and a half."
It is also worth noting that her fiance happens to be a 49ers fan, so there would've been a similar situation even if the Seahawks had lost the NFC championship game.
