Paul and Caragh Brooks, who according to Paul, "have the same brain, just in two bodies," met each other on an Internet dating website. Caragh lived in Australia before deciding to move to the U.S. to be with Paul. The couple, who pride themselves on being a bit wacky, were engaged on New Year's Eve, and decided to marry at one of their favorite places: Taco Bell.
According to MSNBC: "Employees displayed hot sauce packets labeled with the words "Will you marry me?" They decorated the restaurant with streamers and balloons. The bride wore a $15 hot pink dress and the entire wedding cost about $200."
Paul's mother, Kathy, was quoted as saying, "This is the way to go—there's no stress," and she is totally right. It would be easy to mock this wedding, but seriously? These people are kind of awesome. Instead of pouring thousands and thousands of dollars into a cookie cutter wedding, these two decided to have fun and celebrate the weirdness that drew them together in the first place. So good luck to you, Paul and Caragh. Way to think outside the bun!
