Couple Renews Their Vows On Dugout At Safeco Field

SportsKen Griffey Sr.

The dream of getting married in a "palace" came true for one Seattle couple 20 years ago Sunday.

Emily Bishton and Conrad Uno married atop the Mariners dugout in The Kingdome, in front of two witnesses, a Justice of the Peace and one video camera. Their idea of a palace included Ken Griffey, Junior and Jay Buhner taking batting practice.

And now, June 21st, 2009, they marked their 20th wedding anniversary, by renewing their vows in front of more friends and more cameras, once again atop the Mariners dugout, this time at Safeco Field.

The ceremony included a little "dirt" collected from various M's games and locations throughout their marriage.

Bishton says, "It's been really, really fun to be a part of so many great games and so many great experiences at The Kingdome and at Safeco Field. We're really, really happy to be fans of the team, and fans of each other." Uno adds, "We're teammates"

One hundred guests had a front row seat for Sunday's pre-game ceremony.
