Couple weds in Taco Bell

An Illinois couple who said they enjoyed hanging out at Taco Bell decided to marry there.

It's appropriate. It's an off-beat relationship and we figured that would be off-beat, said Paul Brooks, 30, a professional videographer from Normal, Ill.

Friday night, Brooks wed Caragh Brooks, 21, an Australian artist and writer he met through an Internet dating service more than a year ago, The Pantagraph in Bloomington, Ill., reported Sunday.

The couple shared the same last name before marriage but are not related.

The bride dressed in a $15 hot pink dress while the groom wore a lavender shirt and purple and magenta tie in honor of Taco Bell's colors. The entire wedding cost no more than $200, The Pantagraph reported.

This is the way to go -- there's no stress, the groom's mother, Kathy Brooks, said shortly before the ceremony.
