Royal Weddings Now Available
OMAHA, NE - When you hear the term "Royal Wedding", it's likely that you think of a grand affair at Buckingham Palace. Beginning in 2009, the Omaha Royals will offer "Royal Weddings" at Rosenblatt Stadium, presided over by one of their own staff members.
Most fans know Adam Kelly as the on-field emcee during between-innings promotions of Royals home games. He is now officially known as the Most Reverend Adam Pierce Kelly of the Universal Life Church Monastery. While Kelly only needed to complete an online certification process to obtain his new title from the non-denominational church, he is serious about his new role with the team.
"My whole reason for doing this is to create a unique experience for couples who get married, or renew their marriage vows at Rosenblatt Stadium," Kelly said. "I feel it will create lasting memories of their big event and of this world-renowned, historic ballpark."
The Royals ask couples interested in getting married at Rosenblatt - during a game day or non-game day - to write a letter to the team explaining why they should be the first couple to be joined in marriage by the Most Reverend Adam Pierce Kelly. The letter may be emailed to email@example.com, or mailed to: Omaha Royals, 1202 Bert Murphy Ave., Omaha, NE, 68107, Attn: Most Reverend Kelly.
"We are excited to offer a very unique and fun service to our fans," said Rob Crain, Royals Assistant General Manager/Marketing. "We already have a lot of people ask to propose marriage at Rosenblatt and now we are able to actually conduct weddings."
A variety of wedding packages will be available for the 2009 season.
