A Virginia couple was married Tuesday aboard the “Love Float” of the Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif.

Gerald Sapienza and Nicole Angelillo, of Chesapeake, Va., tied the knot during the flower-bedecked parade, which is a New Year’s Day tradition.

Sapienza and Angelillo, former high school classmates, won the parade wedding in a nationwide contest sponsored by Farmers Insurance. They beat out three other couples and won a trip to Pasadena, a wedding gown and tuxedo, and wedding rings.

They also won tickets to the Rose Bowl football game.
