Couple commemorates their love with Costco engagement photos
Americans are known for their love of buying in bulk. So it should come as no surprise that one couple went to the source when celebrating their love. Reddit user Kartarsh and her fiancé are the couple behind the Costco engagement photos that are grabbing tons of attention online.
“I thought it would be funny to have pictures of us doing really mundane things, and then decided it would be better to romanticize those mundane things,” the bride-to-be wrote in response to a comment asking if there was a sentimental reason for choosing the bulk store. The couples’ unique photo shoot and love for the retail giant are going viral. Themed-engagement photos are crazy popular, but most don’t perfectly capture what life after the big day really involves. “It’s a more accurate depiction of life after marriage than frolicking through a field,” one Redditor wrote. “Source: am married and go to Costco for fun. Ikea if we’re feeling frisky.”
And who says romance can’t be found in the routine? Isn’t that, after all, how marriages stay successful for so long. Life doesn’t typically include nonstop honeymoon-worthy vacations so you better be able to find joy in the butter aisle – at least some times. “Oddly my husband and I fell in love at a Costco. We had been friends for years. One day we needed groceries for a BBQ so off we went to Costco,” one Redditor wrote in the captions of Kartarsh’s photos. “I guess we both just had so much fun and it was like…if I can have this much fun with a man just getting groceries then this is the life I want. He must have felt the same.” She added that the happy couple has been married for 21 years.
“We just both really like Costco,” Kartarsh wrote about her engagement photos. Girl, I feel you. My fiancé loves Costco. He’s at the one closest to us right now as I write this. And what isn’t there to love?
