DALLAS, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- A couple exchanged vows at the State Fair of Texas in the shadow of mascot Big Tex and a crowd of about 100 friends and fair-goers on hand.
Sara Rice, 34, of Dallas and Luis Martinez, 25, of Mexico City said they skipped the bureaucracy and held their unsanctioned wedding Tuesday evening in the shadow of the 52-foot-tall Big Tex icon, The Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday.
"It's just, like, perfect," Martinez said. "Our personalities and how our love is. We're just crazy and we have a good time."
The ceremony was presided over by the Rev. Pinky Diablo, real name Tom Sale, who was dressed as a miniature version of Big Tex.
"By the power vested in me by Fletcher's Corny Dogs," Sale said at the end of the ceremony, "I pronounce you husband and wife."
