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