Get married at Santa Maria Costco

December 31, 2014

CostcoThe Santa Maria Costco is a one-stop-shop for lovers this holiday season. In addition to offering deals on all kinds of gifts and groceries, it is now providing what some consider a romantic location for a wedding. [KEYT]

Robert and Meredith Bonilla met in the frozen food aisle of Costco about a year ago. Last week, they married in the same section of the store.

Two rows of poinsettias morphed the frozen food aisle into the wedding aisle, which the coupled walked down to greet each other. They then stood on wooden pallets, took their vows and kissed.

A large crowd surrounded the newlyweds, many of whom held up cell phone cameras.

The ceremony concluded with relaxation in one of Costco’s double recliner chairs.

    It is insignificant whether they met at Trader Joes or a Macdonald’s Resturant, they are fortunate to met/find the love of their life natural and real!
    I believe and have faith that this is a marriage of natural attraction without regard to association or connections for wealth or power with a unreserved willingness to enter the knot for an eternal loving relationship itself alone.
    They are lucky to have found each other (at Costco) and they realize this.

    With over 50% of marriages ending in divorce, it was probably the most cost effective means to an end.

    Funny, and tasteless. What if they met at the home town buffet or the post office? I wonder if he sells cars for a living. “And remember our first date, we ate chicken nuggets at mcdonalds, we should have our reception there!”

      Is it any more tasteless than spending $100K on a showpiece wedding designed to impress friends and family rather than focusing upon the actual relationship?

      OK, the Chicken Nuggets at McDonald’s are surprisingly good. Sure, I don’t want to know what’s really in them, or how they’re made (who wants to see how the sausage is made, as the saying goes), but they are VERY tasty and VERY cheap (20 piece for $5.°°)

      Don’t be knockin’ Mickey-D’s, hater.
