CATOOSA, Okla. (CNN/KOTV) -- An Oklahoma couple wanted to make a splash at their wedding. They got married Saturday right in the mouth of a giant blue whale.
Not something you see every day, the blue whale of Catoosa. Blaine Davis says, "My dad built this thing back between 70 and 72. It was a swimming hole at that time, very popular."
It's no longer used for swimming. Now it's just a landmark stop along Oklahoma's Route 66 and a wedding destination? Davis says, "It's different... only four people can say they've been married at the whale."
If history counts for anything, it might actually be the perfect place to take the plunge. Davis says, "My folks were married 50 plus years."
Davis' father built the blue whale out love for his bride, Zelta some 42 years ago. Davis says, "They worked things together and this is one of the deals that they did hand in hand, so maybe there's something magical about that."
Matt and Jennifer Chambers found it to be magical, too. The bride hooked her groom Saturday right in the mouth of the blue whale.
Davis says, "Not many people can say they've done this. All of them that I know of, it's lasted."
A fairy tale ending, and a whale of a tale it is.
