I'm lovin' it !

BISMARCK, North Dakota. -- It was a Valentine's Day love story. But newlyweds Lori and Craig Sager didn't get married under a big, red heart.

They tied the knot under the golden arches.

The Sagers got hitched Wednesday at a McDonald's in Bismarck.

It seemed like just the right place. They had been meeting there for lunch every Tuesday for more than a year.

Craig Sager said that, at first, he suggested McDonald's as a joke when they were planning their wedding. But Lori liked the idea.

The new bride said you can always get married in a church so they decided to do something different.

McDonald's gave away free coffee and juice, and the couple got a $20 Arch Card from McDonald's for a wedding gift.

"I thought it was a cool idea,"said Dana Bryan, a McDonald's manager who OK'd the couple's request to marry there.

Coffee drinker Don Fryer, 70, of Bismarck, a morning McDonald's regular for years, had a good seat and view for the nuptials. He was quite sure he'd never seen a wedding there before. "It might liven the place up a bit."

Customers got to chew their fast food to the classical strains of Pachelbel's Canon in D coming out Sager's sound system. And they got some religion.
