CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- A couple of customers who first met in May at a Florida Whole Foods Market say they got married in the store's cafe.

Jack Frankel, 75, and Fina Nikolos, 67, took their vows Saturday at the Coral Springs store as about 40 invited attendees plus employees and shoppers looked on, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

The couple met when Frankel was waiting for the rain to stop after shopping and Nikolos approached him with an umbrella and offered to walk him to his car. He thanked her by taking her out to lunch.

"We're doing great, as you see from the tears flowing from my eyes. Love, that's all it is. It's love," said Frankel after the ceremony.

"Very good, very happy. A little nervous," Nikolos said of their wedding.

Although employees have in the past married at a Whole Foods Market in Florida, it was the first time for customers, said Jonny Rose, marketing specialist for the store.

Rose welcomed the couple to return to the store to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.
