\MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. -- There were no cold feet for a Michigan couple who got married in the shoe aisle of a central Michigan department store.

Drew Ellis and Lisa Satayut exchanged vows Saturday at the TJ Maxx in Mt. Pleasant, about 70 miles northwest of Flint.

A widened aisle, vine covered arch, and white chairs with red bows highlighted the traditional ceremony that included string music, display-dodging cameramen -- and curious shoppers who stopped bargain hunting long enough to watch.

The Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant says Satayut dreamed of marrying Ellis, a sports writer for the newspaper, in the store's size 8 shoe aisle.

Satayut, a self-proclaimed "Maxxinista," chose to wed in the discount retailer because she considers it her 'happy place.'

The bride wore a strapless white chiffon gown, with long black gloves and bright green gladiator-style sandals.

No honeymoon is planned.
