NORMAN, Okla. - Football season is just around the corner, but one couple’s Sooner spirit was in full swing on their wedding day.
On Nov. 16, 2013, the University of Oklahoma beat Iowa State in Norman, and it happened to be the day Sam Cox met Caddie after the game.
Four years later, the pair decided to tie the knot in a gorgeous ceremony in Norman.
However, they had a special surprise in store for their guests.
“My twin brother and I were his best men, and we had no idea that was going to be the wedding cake,” said James Cox.
The couple decided to honor their favorite team with a sweet replica of OU's Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium as the groom's cake.
“It's got a photo of them on one side and the score of the game that Sam had attended that day,” Cox said.
Frosted Arts Bakery and Studio in Dallas made the 200-pound cake.
“It took a few days to plan, and we worked on it a solid week,” said Bronwen Weber, executive pastry chef.
Once it came time for the wedding, the chefs had to move the cake from Dallas to Norman in the back of van. However, that wasn't the hardest part.
“It barely fit down the hallway. That's the hardest part about doing a cake like this. We had to have them measure the hallway and measure all the doorways to make sure the thing would fit,” Weber said.
The four-feet-by-five-feet cake was a sweet treat for the wedding guests.
“When we get in the reception, which is actually on the third floor of the Union ballroom, we see this cake and it's a perfect rendition of Memorial Stadium,” Cox said.
As for the newlyweds, they're on their way to Thailand for their honeymoon.
