Thanks to a record number of requests from betrothed Tiger fans since January 10, Auburn University is now officially offering the use of Samford Hall for weddings.
Apparently there’s nothing like a national championship to make you want to tie the knot.
The only reason the lawn has been previously unavailable as matrimonial setting (which these folks were probably wondering about six months ago)? There wasn’t a group to actually coordinate the events.
Enter the crack team at the Auburn University Hotel. For $1,000-$2,5000 (some of which will apparently be going to scholarship funds), War Eagle love birds get chairs, music, flowers, light drinks, and the lawn. (If you’re short a ring bearer, one of the campus’ semi-tame squirrels will be provided — providing Onterio McCalebb isn’t your best man. They hate that dude.) And, if you get married at noon, you get to walk down the aisle to the Auburn fight song.
Except, of course, on game days. Unless you want it as a funeral venue as well. Capish?
