Love blooms in Wal-Mart aisle

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - Attention Wal-Mart shoppers, wedding in lawn and garden.
Employees Chet Eldridge and Danna Hornback tied the knot Thursday amid the retailer's flowers, shrubs and lawn chairs.
Eldridge, 51, an automotive manager, and Hornback, 45, an arts and crafts associate, met during the store's employee orientation. She agreed to their first date in the furniture section. After the couple became engaged, a manager suggested they exchange vows at the store.
"We met here; he asked me out here. Why not?" Hornback said.
The only unexpected turn occurred when the familiar "Attention Wal-Mart shoppers" announcement over the public address system broke into the ceremony.
After the couple was pronounced husband and wife, the cheers could be heard in customer service on the other side of the store.
Springfield is about 40 miles west of Columbus.
