CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — One Broward County couple decided to tie the knot where they first met: Whole Foods Market.
Jack Frankel, 75, and 67-year-old Fina Nikolos met in May at the supermarket store in Coral Springs.
It had been raining when Frankel noticed a beautiful woman pass him. Nikolos offered to walk him to his car with an umbrella. He later thanked her by taking her out to lunch.
On Saturday the two returned to where their love began for a small wedding ceremony in the store's cafe.
To Frankel, the most irresistible thing about his bride is her eyes.
“She looks at me with those Spanish eyes and I melt,” he said.
About 40 people attended the ceremony as store employees and customers watched and smiled. The couple held each other close during the ceremony, sharing a few tears.
The two exchanged emotional vows. Nikolos was too overcome to finish hers aloud.
According to the Sun Sentinel, this was the first time customers tied the knot in a Whole Foods Market in Florida, though employees have been married there.
After the ceremony, the happy, loving couple had their first dance. Deciding on the song was an easy feat for Frankel. He chose “Spanish Eyes.”
