In a backyard wedding at Shannon Royer's house, Royer, left, places a ring on the hand of Bill McTaggart as the two get married after a longtime friendship. McTaggart wore a Santa suit when Kansas University played in the Tangerine Bowl in December, hoping to attract television cameras so he could hold up a sign asking Royer to marry him. The cameras ignored McTaggart, but Royer found out about the plan, and Monday, the two tied the knot. Royer and McTaggart are both from Lawrence. At right is McTaggart's mother, Geneva McTaggart, Baldwin.
