Playing

A Tennessee homeless couple celebrated their love by tying the knot at the laundromat where they regularly wash their clothes. 

Cheryl Smith and James Knight have been dating on and off for 11 years, and have had their ups and downs, they say, but what has remained through it all is their love.

“I thought I would never meet the right person, and apparently I did,” Knight told WTVF

Smith works at Soap Opry Coin Laundry in Nashville, but the pair are still without a place to live. Even through hardship, they wanted to affirm their love for another.

“Next thing I know he's on his knees asking me to marry him,” Smith said. 

Smith said she had no question. Of course, she said yes.

On their wedding day, friends gathered to watch the ceremony. The clothes they wore for the ceremony were donated. There was pizza and cake. And of course there was a bouquet toss.

“The way I feel, this is God's purpose of getting us together, like, I told him we might be down for now but God will bring us up,” Smith said. “It's like a dream come true.”
