Couple Married on the Ice Before Caps Game

Posted September 22, 2014

Sunday’s preseason game against Buffalo went down as a meaningless 1-0 win for the Caps, but it was an unforgettable day for Joe Kurnos and Dera Atwell, who got married at center ice before the game.

Kurnos is the assistant PA announcer for the Caps. That meant Wes Johnson was there, pumping up the crowd in his Wild-Wes sorta way. It was the first on-ice marriage at Verizon Center, we’re told. Here’s to the newlyweds.

Here are a couple of photos, taken by Jarrod Wronski of Metro DC DJs. Check out far more photos on his site.
