PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

One couple is getting married in true Portland style, on a patch of the iconic PDX carpet.

The couple, Wes and Mary, have a roll of the carpet, which they plan to stand on during the ceremony. 

The carpet has special meaning to them. They are both busy travelers and their first date was at PDX, where they had dinner. 

"She actually missed her flight during dinner, so that made it extra memorable," said Wes. "I think we knew right after that date. That's why the airport plays such a big part of it. Who has their first date at the airport?"

Wes even proposed to Mary on the famous carpet. 

Carpet Mill Outlet, the distributor of the old PDX carpet, said that they gave this patch a good deep cleaning before handing it over to the couple and they also gave Wes and Mary a framed piece to hang up in their home.
