Orchard Park, NY (WBEN) - The image went viral during the game, of what might have been the best tailgate ever. 

Gerald and Kaitlyn Holmes tied the knot in the parking lot before Sunday's Home opener with a wedding that had everything Bills-themed down to the master of ceremonies.

"Gerald had a very nice Bills suit-coat on with some bright pants," Kaitlyn said. "I had a skirt with Bills fabric and a red, white, and blue veil of course."

The couple walked down an aisle that looked like the playing field, and the officiate was dressed like... and NFL official. 

"We knew it was a situation where we wanted to get married sooner rather than later" Gerald said. 

Call it a shotgun-formation wedding. 

"My beautiful wife and her beautiful imagination thought up this gem of an idea. Everything took of from there."

The ceremony ended with a Bills-themed cake, and quite the reception... a stadium packed full of fans watching a 21-12 win over the Jets.
