A drive-in espresso place might be innovative enough, but Al Holm has added a new dimension to his drive-in coffee shop. You see, Al is a minister and he also serves up drive through weddings. His coffee shop is called "Sacred Grounds." There is no waiting period in Idaho, the location of the shop, so Holm, who is a retired police chaplain, can give you wedded bliss along with your coffee. The service lasts just five minutes and the couple can have as much religion as they want. Wherever you are wed it takes only a moment to get married. It takes a lifetime to know what marriage means.
