Dancing with the cars: Newlyweds slow dance on highway after traffic jam keeps them from reception
Two newlyweds will never forget their first dance since it happened in the middle of a massive traffic jam in Ohio over the weekend.
Traffic came to a standstill after an accident on Route 35 in Dayton Saturday night at the exact time Jeff and Rebecca Payne were to be making their grand entrance at their wedding reception.
Cars were stuck for an hour and a motorist noticed the couple and suggested they dance in the standstill traffic.
The photographers and videographer Levi Curby were able to capture the priceless moment the couple will cherish forever.

Curby told Inside Edition that the couple were just a half-a-mile away from the exit that they needed to get off of when they got stuck in the traffic.
"I think there were some tears at first but no meltdowns," he told Inside Edition. "They were two sports, they handled the whole thing so well. They did great. The dance turned it into a party."
Curby said that everyone on the road was cheering the couple on and giving well wishes.
The couple danced to Alison Krauss' "When You Say Nothing At All," as strangers watched from their vehicles and used the hashtag #RescuethePaynes on social media to help the newlyweds reach their destination.
When the Paynes' finally made it to their reception, they were greeted with roaring cheers and showered with love.
Curby said it was "the most exciting wedding" he had to cover.
