A slow jam in a traffic jam is how a newlywed couple in Ohio dealt with a wedding day setback on Saturday, WLWT reports. Jeff and Rebecca Payne were headed from their ceremony to their reception in Dayton when they got stuck in traffic on US Route 35 after a multicar crash, the Dayton Daily News reports. After an hour or so of waiting, someone in a nearby car recommended the Paynes celebrate their first dance right in the middle of the highway, and so they did, to Alison Krauss' "When You Say Nothing at All," with their videographer capturing the whole thing on video. People notes that while their guests waited at the reception, the Internet celebrated with them, using the #RescueThePaynes hashtag on social media. The Daily News adds there were no serious injuries as a result of the accident that caused the snarl. (A paramedic bride helped at the scene of an accident.)
