LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A lot of wedding weekends begin with a bridal luncheon, maybe a trip to the spa, but one Little Rock couple wanted to do something a little different.
The beautiful path to marriage is getting more and more elaborate these days, but before Patricia Minor walks down the aisle, she and her groom-to-be wanted to spend time with their wedding party.
But the group went for something a little unconventional. The group decided to give back to their community by volunteering their time at the Arkansas Food Bank.
"I thought this would be a great opportunity for us to have some bonding time and some fun times," Minor said.
The groom, Will Ewings, and all of his groomsmen are either retired or active duty military. The man were wearing their favorite team's jersey as they stacked cans of food and helped in any way they could. Minor said service is nothing new to them.
"These men have spent their whole life practically serving their country and today they were willing to come out and give their time," she said.
The couple said that helping in the fight against hunger would be the perfect way to showcase their love while giving love back to others.
"We have embarked on not just a relationship, but whatever spiritual guidance that we are given," Minor said. "We want to be a ministry, so this is definitely a start."
Minor said the couple hopes to build on that foundation.
"We're a team, so we constantly have to build that team," she said. "I think this will give us quality time together and get some gratification behind it."
The wedding is at Noah's Event Venue.
