Well it was bound to happen…and a Wal-Mart in York, Nebraska was the first to host one.
Crystal Newsome and Vick Vickrey where the first couple to get married at a Wal-Mart this past Saturday.
“We had our first kiss at Walmart,” Crystal recalled.
Robert has been with Walmart for 12 years and is the grocery department manager. With five years behind her at the company, Crystal is the deli manager. Friendship blossomed into romance about two years ago.
Robert has three grown children and four grandchildren. Crystal has four children. Her oldest son, 6-year-old Keagan, walked her down the “aisle,” a white runner. The entire blended family was part of the wedding while Walmart employees gathered with more friends to hear Crystal and Robert exchange their vows.
“We put an invitation up near the time clock for a while,” Crystal said.
She laughed at her co-workers’ reactions: “Are you kidding? Why would you want to be here on your day off?”
“We both work here, we met here, it all started here, why not?” Robert said of his Walmart wedding.
