As Washington and San Francisco were playing an 18-inning game on Saturday, two people who had a Giants-themed wedding put their reception on hold until the finish.

Die-hard fans Chasen and Courtney wouldn’t cut their cake, decorated with San Francisco’s logo and personalized jerseys, until the game, which lasted six hours and 23 minutes, ended.

At least the wait for the delicious dessert was worth it as the Giants ended up winning 2-1 thanks to Brandon Belt’s home run in the top of the 18th.
