SANTA MARIA, Calif. - The holiday season came with one special gift for a Santa Maria couple. They were given permission to get married inside their local Costco.
The wedding took place last week as family and friends came into the store after it closed to celebrate the marriage of Robert Bonilla and his bride Meredith.
They met in Costco about a year ago while shopping.
It held such a special place for them, the company approved their wedding ceremony.
The uniquely romantic event took place in the frozen food section, the exact spot where they first laid eyes on each other.
Bonilla stood on wooden pallets and greeted his bride there to take the vows, after she walked down an aisle lined with poinsettias.
Afterwards they kissed, shared time with friends, and found a cushy "double" recliner chair to relax in.Slideshow: Santa Maria Couple Marries at Costco
