After Ross Aronson proposed to Jacqueline Troutman during a carefully orchestrated stroll around Whole Foods — complete with samples of Jacqueline's favorite foods, because that's love right there — the bride-to-be joked about getting married in the grocery store.
As it happened, the idea wasn't just ha-ha funny, but delightful. So, on the one-year anniversary of their February 24 engagement, the couple got married at Whole Foods in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where they'd recently moved from New York, according to Today.com.
The store gave them the feels because they'd spent lots of time walking to and from it, and shopping at it, as their relationship bloomed in New York.
Although they hit the freezer aisle with spoons (as one does) after exchanging rings, the actual ceremony took place in the shop's floral department with guests and shoppers bearing witness. A reception for guests followed in the grocery store's cafe.
In addition to bouquets from the store, Jacqueline, who works in marketing, authored nearly 80 food and relationship puns such as "cantaloupe anymore" and "rib-eye do," which appeared on signs positioned throughout the store. What a "radishing" bride! (Sorry!)
Ross, who attends UNC’s orthodontics graduate school but enjoys cooking, according to NewsObserver.com, pitched in too: Apart from store-made cake, the groom catered a family meal FIX REP served later that day at the couple's home. He used groceries from Whole Foods. It was a "dairy-tale wedding," indeed!
