For the first time in its history, Bonney Field hosted a wedding right before tonight's Sacramento Republic FC match against the Seattle Sounders FC.
Republic superfans Heather Sims and Melvin Stewart started dating five years ago. Their relationship blossomed as their dedication to the Sacramento Republic FC grew and became members of the Tower Bridge Brigade cheering section. Stewart proposed to Sims last August at a Republic FC home game.
Almost a year later, surrounded by family, friends, and the Battalion, the two shared their vows and tired the knot.
