Couple Gets Married In Costco Frozen Food Section

While a Costco club membership has to be renewed every year, a couple of Costco fans in California decided to use the warehouse store as the backdrop for a ceremony involving a much longer commitment.

KEYT-TV reports on the recent Costco nuptials of a couple in Santa Maria, CA.

The newlyweds apparently met in the store’s frozen food section a year earlier and decided that this would be the best place to say “I do” to each other in front of their friends and families.

And so they got permission from the store to hold the ceremony, complete with wood pallet altar, in the Costco after the building had closed for the day.

After the ceremony, the couple chilled out in a double recliner from the Costco furniture section. No word on whether or not the reception food was made up of free samples.

This is just the latest story about couples saying their vows in a beloved retail location.

There was the couple that got hitched at a New Jersey IKEA, the North Carolina nuptials in the Walmart layaway section, the $200 wedding in an Illinois Taco Bell, the wedding in an Oklahoma Starbucks, and the couple who wed at a KFC two decades after the bride’s parents married at McDonald’s.
