Recently Sebastian the Ibis crashed a Miami Hurricane fan’s wedding with running back Duke Johnson for a spectacular moment. This time, however, the swaggy mascot was tasked with walking a bride down the aisle during the most important steps of her life. The result was an amazing moment for newlyweds Patrick and Jennifer Sullivan.
Jennifer had been dreading her big moment without her late father, but Sebastian was there to save the day, in a customized jersey for pops no less. The Miami Hurricanes posted the below video to Facebook, which she provided the following comment on:
When my dad passed away, I dreaded walking down the aisle without him and wasn’t sure how I’d make it through the moment. And yet it ended up being one of the most amazing/memorable moments of the day. I just want to thank all of the amazing people in the athletic department (along with Harry Rothwell of allCanes.com who customized the jersey to include my dad’s nickname on the back) who helped to make this happen. Without you, my day might have been just a little less beautiful. We’re all so lucky to be fans of such a great program, led by the most compassionate of people. Now let’s get these W’s. GO CANES!
Patrick also chimed in on the uniquely awesome occasion:
That’s my beautiful wife Jennifer Urs Sullivan whose Father passed away, so in his place she was walked down the aisle by the next best thing-Sebastian
Take it away, Sebastian …
