CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A sweet story took place high above the Chicago skyline Tuesday. Two professional chimney sweeps renewed their vows at one of Chicago's most scenic locations – the Willis Tower.

David and Dee Stoll were married up on the Sears Tower Sky Deck, in 1978. They decided to recreate their entire wedding ceremony on Tuesday, 35 years later.

The sweeps were dressed in traditional chimney cleaning attire like they were at their wedding, complete with tops hats, tails and an honor guard of sweeps.

The main reason why they decided to get married on Oct. 8, 1978 was to raise awareness about chimney sweep safety. They hope their renewal of vows will bring the issue to the forefront of the public's minds once again.
