VIDEO: KCWI Celebrates Valentine’s Day With Live On-Air Wedding

Here’s one Valentine’s Day celebration that went above and beyond: KCWI, the CW affiliate in Des Moines, hosted a live wedding on the morning newscast Thursday.

Kellee Baxter and Shane Rolling from Fort Dodge, Iowa, tied the knot this morning on live television. Thanks to the magic of the green screen, Baxter and Rolling — who were engaged for six years — were able to choose their ideal wedding location (a beach in Hawaii) and musical accompaniment (an Elvis impersonator).

Hosts Jackie Schmillen and Lou Sipolt and meteorologist Jason Parkin were on hand for the ceremony. “This is awesome. This is what Valentine’s Day is all about!” Sipolt said at the conclusion of the ceremony.

Video (beginning at the 1:34:15 mark) and more picutres are after the jump.
