(WUSA9) -- The government shutdown didn't stop one couple from getting married.
Mike Cassesso and his fiance MiaLien Le were told by the National Park Service to cancel a planned exchange of vows on the steps of the Jefferson Memorial Saturday.
Instead, the couple was married Thursday night by Stephen Colbert.
The wedding, which aired on Thursday's "Colbert Report" included appearances from Smokey the Bear, Mandy Patinkin and Audra McDonald.
