CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — One Broward County couple decided to tie the knot where they first met: Whole Foods Market.

Seventy-five year-old Jack Frankel 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.

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.
