LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — A bride and groom dressed as clowns for their marriage ceremony, which took place in Pennsylvania at what organizers call the only annual Clown Festival in the world.

The Centre Daily Times reports that Billy Tedeski and Patty Kulwicki were married Friday at Clown Fest 2013, which was held in Lancaster.

Tedeski, who has performed as a clown for 41 years, wore a fake nose, black lipstick, and full clown regalia. Kulwicki wore a flaming red wig and a red dot on her nose, a lace headband the lone accessory to her embroidered gown. The couple is from Pittsburgh.

Tedeski says the couple performs clown routines as a team and that they mesh wonderfully.

The reverend at the ceremony was also dressed in clown garb, as were guests.
