The newlyweds!

This is the story of a man and a woman who fell in love and had their first date on Valentine's Day.

Exactly ten years later, they got married outdoors -- in February -- on live TV!

Fox 8 News was thrilled to organize the very special Valentine's Day Wedding.

It was the first time the station took on such an event, and no detail was overlooked.

Erica Elwell and Gregory Stallings were selected to be our special bride and groom out of some 300 entries.

Squire's Castle in the Cleveland Metroparks was chosen for the location.  With special effects, uplighting and gorgeous floral accents, the backdrop was magical!

The action began at 6 a.m. -- the couple prepared all morning long and exchanged vows  just before 9 a.m.

FOX 8 streamed the entire ceremony online so our whole audience could be a part of it.

And there was plenty to enjoy.  Stefani Schaefer and Kristi Capel were honorary bridesmaids.  Wayne Dawson officiated the ceremony and Kenny Crumpton gave the toast.

And like any wedding, there had to be a little excitement, too.  Watch what happened when the cake was delivered!

Then, Friday night-- there was a big reception at 700 Beta Banquet and Conference Center in Mayfield Village.
