Will you taco this woman to be your wife?

A quirky couple who met online have tied the knot at a US fast food restaurant. Customers in Taco Bell continued to order food as Paul and Caragh Brooks sat in an orange booth last Friday and exchanged their vows, reported the Associated Press.

"It's appropriate," said the groom. "It's an offbeat relationship."

Several dozen guests looked on as the couple's friend, Ryan Green, read the pair their vows while wearing a T-shirt. He was ordained via the internet.

"This is the way to go - there's no stress," said the groom's mother, Kathy Brooks.

Employees from the Illinois restaurant displayed hot sauce packets inscribed with the words, "Will you marry me?" The eatery was decorated with streamers and balloons.
The bride wore a bright pink dress, and the entire wedding reportedly cost US$200.

Caragh Brooks, 21 and Brooks, 30, met on an Internet dating Web site. They already shared the same last name.

"We have the same brain, just in two bodies," Mr Brooks said.

"We think alike in virtually every manner. We have the same interests, viewpoints."

He proposed on New Year's Eve and, as they both enjoyed spending time at the local Taco Bell, decided to get married there.
