Leslie and Robert’s wedding twenty-five years ago was a big party in the parking lot of the Midway Drive-In Theater – they rapped their wedding vows like the Beastie Boys while guests sat on the hoods of their cars eating popcorn.

Even with such an out-of-the-ordinary wedding, Leslie was horrified when her husband told her that he wanted to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows at Home Depot, which now sits where the old drive-in used to be.

She gave in after Robert convinced her that the celebration would be as unique as the first one. He contacted Assistant Store Manager Joe Schnatterer who thought it was a great idea and rallied store associates to help. The store supplied flowers and invited shoppers to attend. In the Garden Center, bagpipes and drums (directed by the couple’s son, the director of bands at a local high school) cued the start of the processional…the preacher spoke of everlasting love…and the guests watched it all play out while eating popcorn and cheering.
