PALATKA, Fla., May 2 (UPI) -- A pair of Florida mud-bogging enthusiasts married at the same mud pit where the groom proposed a year ago.

Kodie Umphenour, 24, and Carina Pasco, 31, were wed Saturday at the Hog Waller Mud Bog & ATV mud pit in Putnam County in a ceremony described on the invitations as "Our Big Ol' Muddy Redneck Wedding," The St. Augustine Record reported Wednesday.

The wedding was preceded by several minutes of mud tossing among guests and independent visitors to the mud pit. ATV riders were asked to silence their engines during the ceremony.

The wedding blended the families of Umphenour, who has two children, and Pasco, who has four.

Umphenour said the wedding doubled as a honeymoon.

"I've got to get back to work Monday," he said. "This is our honeymoon."
