Apologies for that headline everyone but that's to be expected when a man proposes to a woman in a Whole Foods. Vladimir Romannikov met Monica Dehombre while they were shopping at a branch in Coral Gables, Florida one year ago. He first saw her by the fridge, reading kombucha labels, and proceeded to follow her around the store until getting to the checkout line in aisle two (all of which the couple gamely reenacts for channel seven news).

"So you shop all organic, huh?" was his opening line. Besides further proof that local newscaster voices should always narrate these kinds of situations ("That was it. The MOTHER of all pick-up lines."), the line worked for whatever reason and a year later, he had the grocery store personel chuck rose petals around that fateful aisle two and play John Legend over the loud-speaker. Final—perfect—detail: The pretense for interrupting their dinner date plans to make a Whole Foods run was because he had a craving for Yucca cheese rolls, the couple's favorite. Check out the segment below.
