A couple who wanted an extra sweet ceremony decided to get married inside a newly opened doughnut shop, and that’s not even the most important detail.
The Colorado couple's nuptials took place promptly at 1:14 p.m. on Jan. 1, 2014. That’s right: 1/1/14 at 1:14.
The pair, Chris and Chanti Hayes, said they knew they wanted to be married inside Denver's Voodoo Doughnut shop as soon as it opened, they told NBC affiliate KUSA-TV in Denver.
The Hayes were the first to tie the knot in the Denver shop, but the franchise is no stranger to weddings. Voodoo Doughnut, which offers out-of-the-norm treats with names like "Maple Blazer Blunt" and "Memphis Mafia," also functions as a wedding chapel.
Next to flavors of doughnuts and funky-flavored ales on Voodoo’s website, married-couples-to-be can browse numerous nuptial offerings.
Odd news of the day
Couples can spend anywhere from $25 to $6,600 depending on which ceremonial package they choose -- and how many doughnuts they want filling the tables.
Voodoo Doughnut CEO Robin Ludwig told KUSA his Portland, Ore., shop has long-offered wedding ceremonies as part of its distinctive menu, and he hopes the new Denver location will grow to keep just as many matrimonial memories inside.
