When Ozzfest 2010 was announced, Barnes was looking at meet-and-greet packages and came across the wedding ceremony. They were was already engaged and decided it would be the ideal spot for a wedding. The couple said they want their first dance to be the Osbourne song "Dreamer."

"We wanted to give it a break for a couple of years," Sharon Osbourne, Osbourne's wife and manager said in a telephone interview last week.Sharon Osbourne said the wedding package was inspired by Big Dave, Ozzfest emcee. He became ordained as a minister for his brother's wedding and the idea of marrying people at Ozzfest came up.

Wearing a blazer with a seal reading "Church of the Eternal Uprising" and his image on the back, Big Dave gave tours for VIP guests backstage at the festival before his officiating duties."Every year we get crazy requests from people...We wanted to do it for the fans," he said backstage before the wedding.

Donning a hooded black cloak, Big Dave brought Barnes, dressed in a white button-down shirt with a tie and a hat, and Knorr, dressed in a long black tank dress onto the second stage after Drowning Pool and before Black Label Society closed the stage out for the day.

After they said their vows, the wedding party drank champagne and the crowd cheered and threw up metal horns in approval. They left in a golf cart that was decorated with "Just Married" signs and strings of cans of an energy drink..

The cart took Barnes and Knorr off to their first activity as a married couple -- having wedding cake with Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne".

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww, this is so sweet. Congrats to the happy couple!
I wonder if anyone has ever gotten married at Wacken or at any metal Festival too? ^_^ Let me know!
