Wedding Bells

Why? Why is this a top news story? It has made the national press big time--I have been hearing about it all day.

  • Admittedly 'off-beat' couple gets married at Taco Bell
  • By Mary Ann Ford and Sharon K. Wolfe, The Pantagraph
  • NORMAL -- Paul and Caragh Brooks wanted an off-beat wedding and they got one Friday evening — at Taco Bell.
  • Caragh Brooks, dressed in a $15, hot pink dress, said her vows with Paul Brooks, who wore a lavender shirt and purple and magenta tie in honor of Taco Bell’s colors, in the dining area of the fast-food eatery at 1527 E. College Ave., Normal.
  • The entire wedding cost about $200.
  • “It’s appropriate,” the groom said of the Taco Bell choice. “It’s an off-beat relationship and we figured that would be off-beat.”
So, yes, I have heard the story about the couple who got married at the Normal Taco Bell. So stop asking!
