As a newlywed couple in Arizona took their first steps down the aisle, it was an extraordinary event. Brenda, 72, and Dennis Delgado, 78, exchanged vows on November 19 at Fry’s Food and Drug in Casa Grande, Arizona.

Their wedding at the grocery store held special significance for them. Not only did they first meet in the condiment aisle, but Dennis also proposed to Brenda there nine months later.

In August 2021, Brenda and Dennis crossed paths for the first time. Brenda was browsing the condiment aisle, contemplating a jar of Miracle Whip, when Dennis approached her with a pandemic-appropriate pickup line.

“Do you know the best thing about wearing a mask?” he asked.

Brenda chuckled at his witty remark, and the two engaged in a conversation that lasted thirty minutes. They discovered that they both attended the same church and found solace and support in their faith.

Before their serendipitous encounter, both Brenda and Dennis were grappling with grief. Brenda had recently lost her husband of 30 years to prostate cancer, while Dennis had lost his wife of 45 years just over a year before meeting Brenda.

Their shared experiences of loss and sadness brought them together, providing solace and understanding during a difficult time. Over the next three months, their connection deepened, and they both felt ready to embrace a new chapter in their lives.

As their relationship blossomed, Brenda jokingly predicted that Dennis would propose to her on one knee. True to her prediction, Dennis did just that, dropping down on one knee in aisle eight, where they had first met nine months earlier.

After their engagement, the couple began planning their wedding, which turned out to be a unique and memorable affair. Brenda walked down the condiment aisle, adorned with special floral arrangements crafted by the grocery store staff, as “The Wedding March” played over the intercom.

While Brenda may consider their wedding unconventional, to others, it was a beautiful celebration of love and resilience. She acknowledges her own quirky nature, jokingly attributing the idea of getting married in a grocery store to herself.
