MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Oct. 21 (UPI) -- A West Virginia couple expressed their love for each other and Target by recreating their wedding photos in the store for their one-year anniversary.
Photographer Callie Lindsey snapped the unique photos of bride and groom Lauren and Corey Rexroad after Lauren said the Target store was the only thing missing from their wedding shoot a year prior.
"Newlyweds Corey and Lauren took a walk down the home goods aisle of Target, fed each other popcorn and Icees in the cafe, and snuggled on the display couch in aisle C13," Lindsey said.
Rexroad told ABC News there's "not a lot to do" in Morgantown and she spent a lot of time at Target with her husband throughout their first year of marriage.
"There's a big hill and on top of that hill is Target. We are there all the time, especially being newlyweds and decorating our first home," she said.
Rexroad and Lindsey contacted the local Target location who were happy to accommodate the two-hour photo session.
Rexroad's husband was initially taken aback by the idea but she said he eventually found it "hilarious" as did she.
"It was hysterical," she said. "We got out of the car and as soon as I stepped out of the car I could feel eyes everywhere. People were like peeking out of their windows."
The photos went viral after Lindsey posted them on social media, even being shared by Target's official Twitter page.
"I was very surprised when Target reached out via Instagram and asked to share one of the photos," she told UPI. "I don't have a Twitter account, so when a friend sent me the link it was pretty exciting. But after a few minutes, it was back to work as usual for the day."
While both Lindsey and the Rexroads thoroughly enjoyed the in-store photoshoot, she doesn't expect to do another.
"While it was a fun shoot to be a part of and I loved working with Corey and Lauren, I don't think any of us plan on doing a shoot in a store again in the future!" Lindsey said.
