This Bride Walked Down The (Costco Frozen Food) Aisle

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

A couple said "I do" in the romantic escape that is the frozen food aisle of their local Costco. Robert and Meredith Bonilla had a meet-cute at a Santa Maria Costco about a year ago, KEYT reports. They were both shopping when they locked eyes, and the rest is history.

When they made the decision to tie the knot, they decided to take it back to the spot where it all began. Costco granted the couple permission and last week, Meredith walked down the aisle to meet Robert, who waited for his blushing bride atop a stack of wooden pallets.

The wedding was followed by cheese sampling from the deli and lounging in one of Costco's reasonably priced recliners.

In this mad, mad world, aren't we all just looking for a microwave to melt the frozen breakfast burrito that is our hearts? Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Bonilla.
