Couple's arranged marriage turned into 19-year 'love story'

KARE Classic: Weinlick Wedding at Mall of America, June 1998

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota couple who began their life together through an arranged marriage nearly 20 years ago are about to renew their vows.

For David and Elizabeth Weinlick, Friday's ceremony will happen at the Mall of America. It's the same place where David's friends chose Elizabeth to be his bride in a spectacle that drew national headlines.

The occasion will also be tinged with sadness. David Weinlick has been diagnosed with terminal colon cancer. The couple have four children. They say they're out to make the best of their remaining time.

The Weinlicks say their wedding was a spectacle, but their marriage has been "our great love story."
