“It was actually some strangers from Kansas,” the couple’s videographer, Levi Curby, told CNN. “They noticed the wedding dress and asked what (the newlyweds) would be doing if they weren’t stuck in traffic.”The motorists suggested the couple take that first dance then and there.
Others watched from their vehicles while Curby filmed the whole thing, according to “Inside Edition.”
“I think there were some tears at first, but no meltdowns,” Curby told “Inside Edition.” “They were two sports. They handled the whole thing so well. They did great. The dance turned it into a party.”

The couple were finally rescued from their gridlocked reception when a friend of the groom’s father pulled up in the opposite lane, so the Paynes could hop over a guardrail, get into the car and start the rest of their life.
Here’s a video of the rescue:
The Paynes are now reportedly vacationing in an undisclosed location. Hopefully, it has little or no traffic.
