Couples celebrated Valentine's Day by getting married in a unique way Tuesday, forgoing big and flashy for small and intimate at Uptown Coffeehouse in downtown Howell.

Newlyweds Jimmie and Jessica Sizemore of Fenton were beaming and teary-eyed as they said their vows in front of the coffeehouse's fireplace, which was decorated with balloons, candles and rose petals.

They were one of 26 couples married at the coffee shop on Tuesday.

"We’ve been talking about it for a while and we finally just decided that it’s time. …It was Valentine’s Day and we figured, why not?," said Jessica Sizemore, whose maiden name is Cirefice.

She said the intimate, cute coffeehouse setting suited them well.
