N E W   Y O R K, May 17, 2002 -- It all began — sort of — with a joke, when Sandy Bass signed her high school graduation picture to Junius Chambers, signing it "Your future wife." But many a truth is said in jest, and today is proof of that, as Sandy and "JJ" finally walked down the aisle in Times Square.

The experts at Bride's magazine helped Good Morning America bring all of the details together for a one-of-kind wedding in New York City's Times Square. Here is how it all came together:
