Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson's motorized stagecoach for their wedding 1979.

 People magazine gave it a lot of coverage

Jim Nabors, who sang "Our Love Is Here to Stay" during the ceremony, offered "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" at the reception. Bert Convy piped in with "Just the Way You Are."

 By 5:30 it was time for the next scene. Burt and Loni boarded a chopper, took off for a friend's 125-foot yacht, The Golden Eagle (anchored off the Florida Keys), then set sail for a 10-day honeymoon cruise around the Bahamas.

A custom-built motorized stagecoach, built in 1979 on an International Harvester Scout frame with a 345 V8 engine and four-wheel drive, seats up to 10 people. This stagecoach was used for Burt Reynolds' wedding to Loni Anderson. The interior was custom-designed by Dolly Parton. It is marked "The Burt Reynolds Horse Ranch" and has the "BR" monogram in multiple places.,,20098964,00.html
