More than coffee wafted through the air Friday at Starbucks. Love was also brewing.
Victoria couple Glenn and Chalice Miller met last July at the Navarro Street Starbucks location. So when the two decided to tie the knot about four months ago, they figured what better place to get married than the place they first bonded over lattes?
"It came up in casual conversation. We thought we met there so why not? And we just decided to go with it," the new wife said.
In front of a small crowd of immediate family, friends and, of course, baristas, the two exchanged vows and then toasted their union with his usual latte and her favorite nonfat caramel macchiato.
"Yes, some of our family and friends were shocked when they learned what we planned to do," she laughed. "Some thought it was romantic but others were like, 'Are you kidding me?' But we wanted something different and small, and this just worked for us."
It was a Starbucks barista who actually helped the 42-year-old Coast Guard member and 39-year-old registered nurse meet. After chatting with each one about the other one, the barista finally got the two regular customers to meet in person.
"We knew right from the start. We knew this was it," the new Mrs. Miller said. "We started talking and the next thing you knew, we were deciding on wedding dates."
After the ceremony, the happy coffee lovers headed to San Antonio for their honeymoon.
