When a coach is as revered by fans as Nick Saban is at Alabama, he is going to receive quite a few wedding invites from strangers, but one lucky alumnus actually managed to get a response from the coach and his wife, Terry, albeit with regrets.

Casey Marriott decided to invite several A-listers to her wedding as a joke, including the Sabans, Peyton Manning, Justin Timberlake, and Mickey Mouse, but she was surprised to hear back from the coach and his wife, according to Yellow Hammer News.

 "I got his RSVP last week, and then I got an envelope in the mail from the Alabama Football Department. Freaking out, I opened it and was shocked!"

Inside the envelope was a signed photo of Terry and Nick Saban, with Mrs. Saban wishing the pair the best.

Marriott's fiancé Brandon is a Tennessee fan and had asked Casey to invite Butch Jones as well, but the diehard Crimson Tide fan found there was just not enough space for the Vols coach on the invite list.
