Couple Weds on Football Field to Save Money


It was one long walk down the aisle for a suburban New York bride -- 50 yards long, in fact.

Hundreds of relatives, friends and students cheered as Rahsaan Potillo and Bethany Selino said their vows Friday in the center of the football field at White Plains High School. White Plains Mayor Joseph Delfino officiated.
The bride and groom say they were looking for an inexpensive but memorable venue for their wedding, and they settled on the gridiron because football and the school are important parts of their lives.
He was a standout football player there, graduating in 1998. He now teaches and is an assistant football coach in the school district.
She is a certified social worker and works as a middle school teacher's assistant in the district.
