No standard wedding for warehouse pair

The wedding altar was made of pallets stacked together, covered in white construction paper and packaging tape. To cap it all, the crooning of the wedding singer was accompanied by the steady beeping of a forklift.

Such was the wedding of Elizabeth Livingston and Luis Rosas, both employees of Alco Industries, in the company’s warehouse in Cranbury last week.

The couple had planned to get married next year in a church, but when Luis, a National Guardsman, was ordered to leave for an 18-month tour of Iraq, the couple decided to get married in a civil ceremony at city hall. But, according to the local Star-Ledger newspaper, their co-workers thought they deserved a more memorable celebration.

So, Alco employees got busy turning the shipping bay of the warehouse into an impromptu wedding hall. Singer Kenny Simmons, formerly with The Commodores, also came free – he happens to be the warehouse’s shipping manager.

"Every girl wants to have the dream wedding," Elizabeth said. "This is as good as any dream wedding, because this has actually happened."
