LONGMONT, Colo. -- It was a surprise wedding day for two volunteers who have been helping families clean up from Colorado's devastating floods.

And out of all the places to get hitched, they tied the knot in a Home Depot parking lot.

Vanessa Valentine and Ryan Creel are volunteers for Team Rubicon, a disaster recovery organization for veterans who have returned from overseas. The couple has been dating for nearly four years.

The idea of a wedding started as a joke, but quickly turned into reality when they decided to throw a surprise ceremony outside of a shed near the store.
