The annual spring NCAA basketball tournament has long been known for its ability to turn ordinary sports fans into crazed fanatics. Even the President of the United States fills out a bracket, for goodness sake. But one couple took March Madness to a whole new level with their blue and white Kentucky Wildcats theme wedding.

When Tiffanie Zweydorff and Jeromy Wise of Louisville, KY started making wedding plans, they decided to show their team spirit. Their March nuptials were decorated entirely in Kentucky Wildcats colors, because as the groom said, “Everyone here is huge Kentucky fans, so we figured we'd do something different – not do the same old, same old, have something fun and interesting”. Different, indeed. Not since the famous Baltimore Colts wedding in the movie “Diner” has sports played such a central role in a wedding.

Choosing the colors for the Kentucky Wildcat theme wedding was easy: blue and white. But Zweydorff and Wise did not stop with blue and white flowers and tablecloths. The groom was attired in a white suit with a Kentucky blue shirt while his groomsmen wore blue Kentucky jerseys, complete with the official Nike “swoosh”. And on the bridesmaids? Elegant white sweatshirts with the Wildcats logo, to complement the Kentucky theme details on the bridal gown. The wedding officiant in a black and white stripe referee uniform rounded out the ceremony attire.

The March Madness wedding overlooked no Wildcats themed detail, right down to the basketball on the wedding cake and the Kentucky blue flower on the ring bearer's pillow. Zweydorff and Wise's wedding definitely achieved the goal of showing both their devotion to one another and their favorite college basketball team. With their dream wedding behind them, the newlyweds plan to go on a honeymoon to Las Vegas...but only after the end of the NCAA tournament, of course.
