NY Drive-Thru Is Slow Because Someone Is Getting Married?
Originally, Selena Stallmer and Brian Dinsmore had a big wedding planned for June, with the pandemic still around and protocols in place they decided to postpone their upcoming nuptials.
“So, we were pretty bummed that we weren’t getting married this year,” Stallmer said.
Stallmer was scrolling Facebook when she saw a post from News10 ABC about a Dunkin' Donut “Marriage is On the Menu” contest in New York for a free wedding giveaway.
“I was like, Oh my god, we should do it,” said Stallmer.
However, Stahllmer's fiancee Brian wasn’t sure what to think about exchanging vows at a Dunkin' Drive-Thru.
“Initially, it was a shocker to me,” said Dinsmore. “And I’m like, you know, this is different, especially with the year we’ve had with Corona and all that.”
But after thinking about it for awhile the couple decided to enter the contest on Instagram.
“I’ve gotten to the point where just by my voice and my order, they know who I am,” said Dinsmore. “A couple of times, they’ve predicted it, and I’ve been like, oh, you know me!”
Shotly thereafter Dunkin’ contacted them as winners of the New York contest and they were all in.
So, with a bouquet of donuts and a munchkin for a boutonniere, they exchanged their vows...AT THE DRIVE-THRU.
Dunkin' also awarded the newlyweds with a $500 cash prize, a photography session, and a basket of Dunkin’ merchandise.
There was no mention of other wedding gifts from those in-line, horn honking, or where the reception would be held...but I understand Subway has a huge parking lot.
