Bride explains how she got married at Taylor Swift's Glendale concert

Rene Hurtado has posted a series of videos explaining how she got married during Taylor Swift's recent concert in Glendale.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — One Taylor Swift fan decided to make her concertgoing experience extra special during the pop star's stop in Glendale over the weekend.

Rene Hurtado, who describes herself as a "hardcore Swiftie," posted a series of TikTok videos this week explaining how she and her husband Max got married during Swift's concert at State Farm Stadium. 

Pictures show the couple dressed in formal wear and reciting their vows on the stadium's floor during the concert.

Hurtado said she attended Swift's first Glendale concert on Friday night and jotted down the musician's set list so she could determine the best time for her to get married the following night. 

Because the concert's audio production was quite loud, Hurtado said she tried to find a quieter song that could serve as the backdrop for her and Max's wedding. The bride said she also wanted to avoid getting married during one of Swift's break-up songs.

"It's really hard to get married during a concert; go figure," Hurtado joked in one of her videos.

Hurtado's friend from Texas flew to Arizona and officiated the couple's concert wedding.

Hurtado said security personnel was aware of the wedding beforehand and staff later gave the bride one of the musician's guitar picks as a souvenir. 

The newlywed said she's planning to still have a formal wedding ceremony at a later date.
