MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - The bride wore white - and stainless steel.

Ben and Courtney Sikkenga were married Saturday at a western Michigan ice rink where they first met in seventh grade.

Ben is a 23-year-old lifelong hockey player. Twenty-four-year-old Courtney is his biggest fan. The Muskegon Chronicle says groomsmen and bridesmaids got dressed in locker rooms at Lakeshore Sports Centre before skating on the ice.

Guests had the option of sitting in chairs on the ice or on benches behind the protective glass.

The newlyweds left the rink by walking under raised hockey sticks.
