The Great Taco Bell Wedding of 2009 – A True Recession Special

Why wouldnt you want to get married here???

Why wouldn't you want to get married here??? - It almost looks like a church from the right angle anyway, right?

He proposed on New Year’s Eve and, because they like to spend time at the local Taco Bell, they decided to wed there.

“I would never have expected in my life in working here there would be a wedding,” restaurant manager Carl Hamlow said.

When the going gets tough…we all gotta get a little creative…

But this couple from Normal, Illinois (go figure) has taken creativity (and bizarreness) to a place man never imagined possible!!!

Paul and Caragh Brooks made history Friday afternoon by exchanging their vows inside of a Taco Bell

I kid you not…

I guess the most shocking detail of this creepy little story about a man from Illinois and his Australian-born wife is the entire wedding cost them a mere $200!!!

With the average cost of a wedding in the United States coming in just under $29,000 – The Brooks are modern day economic geniuses in the minds of us here at And This Is My America!

Sure, people were eating Gorditas and Nacho Supremes right next to them as they experienced perhaps one of the most romantic moments in their probably mostly uneventful lives…

And sure, they probably took a clique photo with the whole staff that will hang under the Employee of the Month plaque on the wall right above the gumball machine in between the mens and ladies room…

But hey, I can guarantee you all that the reception party (at a local crystal meth spot) will have all the crack cocaine and malt liquor their little hearts can desire!

So to Paul and Caragh, I wish you guys the best of luck and I hope you have a wonderful time honeymooning at some rundown motel in the local strip mall that’s adjacent to the Taco Bell!!!

***As a shockingly cute side note, Paul and Caragh already had the same last name…now is that not fate or what…

  1. And Illinois still doesn’t recognize same sex marriage because it ‘mocks the sanctity of the union between a man and a woman’ …. more entries for the WTF file, I see….
