HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania woman who recently got married at a mall said she is happy with her wedding venue, which some people have made fun of online.

Thomas and Lasheba Cunningham of Harrisburg got married at the Harrisburg East Mall on Saturday after their original venue fell through two weeks prior, WHTM-TV, Harrisburg, Pa., reported.

Lasheba said she called the mall manager and he set everything up.

"He said 'It sounds like a great idea, let me run it past the general manager, but I'm excited -- it sounds good,'" she said. "We had it between the food court and the movie theater but it was beautiful. They put seating out for us and they hired a pianist for us and he played really good music."

Lasheba said she doesn't care that some people have made fun her and her husband on Facebook.

"I just want them to know that the place wasn't important," Lasheba said. "It was the fact that I married him and I could have married him anywhere."

"I got who I want, I love her, she loves me," Thomas said. "I'm happy, it doesn't even matter."
