Renberg and Brittany Horton are not just co-workers, but they are funeral directors.

"When we met two years ago, I knew she was the one right away," said Renberg, "In our profession we celebrate a life, so why not celebrate our beginning of our life together."

"No one has ever been married at Woodlawn," said newlywed Brittany Renberg, "so once they had the paperwork we signed it and we were on board from the get go."
