WICHITA — Medical assistant Jada Miller and machinist Shane Starlin got a lot more than they bargained for when they bought a car and truck from Suzuki of Wichita at the end of January.
That’s when they met salesman Randolph Warren, who noted that they were buying cars together but had different last names and didn’t appear to be married.
“Well, because he won’t ask me,” is how Warren reports Miller responded.
“And she hits him upside the head,” Warren says. “I said, ‘Man, there’s no time like the present.’ So he started doing the Michael Jackson backup boogie. He said, ‘Well, I don’t know a preacher,’ and I said, ‘Well, I’m one.’ He said, ‘Well, we don’t have a church.’
“Why don’t you do it here?” Warren asked.
They didn’t immediately take him up on it, but when they returned to have a tire replaced, Warren brought it up again.
“We didn’t think he was serious,” Miller says.
He was, though, so on Saturday, the couple married at the Suzuki dealership at 11610 E. Kellogg.
“We stop everything for love,” Warren says.
