We have all heard stories about how the government shutdown has affected people in many different ways. But how about the shutdown forcing a couple to change their wedding plans. It's true!

Genevieve Jeuck and Michael Sallemi had been planning to get married along the rim of the Grand Canyon but when the government shutdown closed the park they were forced, according to CNNMoney, to make a last minute switch.

Jeuck and Sallemi plan to reroute their eight guests to a new location two hours away in Sedona. While the new site is free, they don't know if they will be able to recoup their $250 permit fee and the hundreds of dollars in hotel deposits everyone attending the wedding has made.

Getting married on the rim of the Grand Canyon. I suppose that's an appropriate place to "Take the plunge". Then again, maybe not.
