A couple tied the knot over the weekend at the very same place they met over two years ago: at a Britney Spears concert in Las Vegas.

Woody Arenas, 38, and David Krawsek, 33, met in the pit of the Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood back in December 2013 during the opening night of Spears' "Piece of Me" show, Mashable reports. They returned on Friday to the same venue and had Roland August, a minister dressed as Elvis Presley (who you may have seen before in this Katy Perry video, "Waking Up in Vegas," at the 1:11-minute mark) marry them near the entrance of Axis Theater. While concert-goers passed by, they said their vows to each other. Krawsek's vows were especially adorable: "I promise to catch spiders in the house, kiss you when you’re upset, touch your butt and buy you pizza."

The best part was that Spears, being the awesome megastar she is, decided to surprise the couple by appearing in a video recording that played by the concession stand congratulating them. She said, "Hi, David and Woody. I’m so excited to have you back at my show where the two of you met on the first night on opening night in 2013. I’m honored to be a part of your love story. Congratulations and all the best for an amazing life together."

Spears even took it up a notch and signed their marriage certificate and snapped a photo with Arenas and Krawsek when they did a meet-and-greet with her backstage.
