Kicker: Grocery store nuptials


WORLD Radio - Kicker: Grocery store nuptials

An Illinois couple recently tied the knot in their favorite grocery store


NICK EICHER, HOST: Well, everyone loves a wedding and a memorable location just adds to the moment.

For one couple in Illinois? Something completely different.

Here’s bride Jessica Bojanowsky on NBC News:

BOJANOWSKY: We love Aldi! Aldi is a big part of our relationship together…

Yes, Aldi, the grocery store. The happy couple tied the knot last week.

The reception featured Aldi food and drink. The wedding cake was even topped with a miniature shopping cart.

Groom Michael Hurd got weepy, and it wasn’t because he was standing near the onions:

HURD: Once I saw her walking down with her father, that's when it really got me teary eyed.

The couple won a contest sponsored by the store. They beat out hundreds of other couples for the all expenses paid wedding, plus free groceries for a year.

HURD: Can't be happier. (cheers)

It’s The World and Everything in It.
