Aubrey and Joshua Thompson knew of each other because they both attended the same church in Columbus, but they credit their official introduction as happening in an unusual place: In the peanut butter aisle at Kroger. The pair headed down an aisle of a different sort after Joshua popped the question by spelling out "Marry Me?" in lights in a barn. "It was extremely romantic and blissful," says Aubrey.

Their wedding featured a foot washing ceremony using a bowl that had belonged to Aubrey's great-great-grandmother. Aubrey and Joshua incorporated other personal touches into the ceremony, including a pin from Joshua's great-great-great-grandmother, a signature berry-flavored drink and a canvas that guests painted on in lieu of a traditional guest book.

"The most memorable moments of the weekend were experiencing the love and support from our family and friends," Aubrey says, "and celebrating the beautiful gift of marriage!"
