Couple Weds At Taco Bell

A couple in Illinois ran for the border recently when they mistook Taco Bell for wedding bells. Caragh and Paul Brooks got engaged on New Year’s Eve and because they like Taco Bell so much, they decided to get married there. The bride wore a $15 hot pink dress, employees decorated the restaurant with streamers and balloons, and a friend of the couple was ordained online and administered the vows while wearing a T-shirt. “It’s appropriate,” groom Paul Brooks said. “It’s an offbeat relationship.” The couple met on a dating site when Caragh Brooks was still living in Australia and Paul was in Illinois. Excited that they already shared the same last name (no fees for a name change!!), the couple emailed back and forth and talked on the phone for 9 months before Caragh moved to the states. “We have the same brain, just in two bodies,” Paul Brooks said. (Um, is that like having half a brain each? ). “We think alike in virtually every manner. We have the same interests, viewpoints.” Those same interests include, it seems, Taco Bell and cheap weddings. The entire cost of the ceremony was $200, which begs the question: just how many Double Decker Tacos did guests munch on? []
