A couple who met at an IKEA store nearly 10 years ago returned to the store for their wedding!

Shirley Stewart spotted Berkeley Rashid Smith at an IKEA store in New Jersey.

The couple had the wedding in the IKEA photo department where they first met.

IKEA spokeswoman Olivia Johnson attended the wedding and said that, while there have been weddings at IKEA store all over the world, this was the first to be held at the Elizabeth, New Jersey location. She said the staff was “so excited” about the request to have their wedding there.

“We were here for you when you met,” Johnson told Stewart and Smith. “So we wanted to be here for you when you exchanged your vows.”
