Who says weddings have to be expensive? Some Canadian couples are choosing to tie the knot where they drink (and make) coffee.
In March, a Nova Scotia couple wed where they first met: at a New Mintas Tim Hortons.
And this Saturday, a Winnipeg couple said “I do” where they both work: at the Timmys at 570 Pembina Highway.
Surrounded by friends, family, and surprised customers, Curtis Fazackerley, 27, and Anna Karla Viar, 22, exchanged vows during a short noon-hour ceremony at the store where they work — and first met.

Wedding guests were treated to doughnuts and cake. (Winnipeg Sun)The rings were delivered to the bride and groom in a Timbits box. Dessert was a frosted doughnut cake.
“Curtis and Karla came to us about five days ago and said they wanted to get married in the store,” franchise owner Mavis Mikolajek tells Global News. “I thought, no big deal. The commissioner came and met with us and said it would take about three minutes.”
“Employees got involved and it just got bigger and bigger,” Mikolajek tells the Winnipeg Sun.
Staff even created special edition “Karla and Curtis True Love” doughuts to commemorate the day.
A man who called 911 to complain about his McDonald’s order ended up going to jail.

“I went in to order seven McDoubles and one McChicken and one fry,” Lorenzo Riggins said. But he says that’s not what he walked away with.
“When I got to my truck and I got ready to leave, I looked in my bag and come to find out I had six McDoubles,”  he said.
SO, he went back into the restaurant to get his other McDouble …………….., but didn’t get any satisfaction.
“She was trying to get an attitude with me, and I said I’m going to call the police,” the dissatisfied customer said.
And he did, but that’s when he got double trouble rather than another McDouble.
Riggins was arrested and charged with violation of the emergency 911 telephone service

Sylvester Stallone Slams Bruce Willis as "Greedy and Lazy"
It turns out, not everyone is upset about the recent departure ofBruce Willis from Expendables 3. As news broke that Harrison Ford would be replacing Willis in the upcoming film, Sylvester Stallone took to Twitter to express his excitement about the big change — for a very specific reason.
“WILLIS OUT… HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!” the Rocky actor wrote.
Though the two actors have starred together in the first two films, Stallone’s relationship with Willis, 58, seems to have gone south. “GREEDY AND LAZY …… A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE,” Stallone added. A rep confirmed to HuffPost Entertainment that the tweet was indeed in reference to Willis, but had no further comment.
Willis appeared in the first two Expendables films alongside Stallone, 67, and other stars including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Jet Li and Mickey Rourke. The latest film will feature new faces like Mel Gibson, Kellan Lutz, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes and Milla Jovovich.
Production for Expendables 3 is set to begin this month.
An official says a Lion Air jet carrying 117 people hit a cow while landing and skidded off a runway in eastern Indonesia. No injuries were reported, but the incident forced the cancellation of flights, stranding hundreds of passengers traveling for the Eid holiday.
Transportation Ministry spokesman Bambang Ervan says the incident occurred Tuesday night as the Boeing 737-800 plane was landing at Jalaluddin airport in Gorontalo on Sulawesi island. He says three cows were on the runway, and the plane hit at least one and careened off the runaway before coming to a stop.
The incident is under investigation.

Workers on Tuesday conducted a final inspection of the rundown Cleveland house where three young women were imprisoned and tortured for roughly a decade, in preparation for its demolition.
The razing, scheduled for today, comes less than a week after Ariel Castro was sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus 1,000 years, for holding Michelle Knight, Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry captive in his home on Cleveland’s west side.
Egypt’s ambassador has praised Canada’s “prudent” response to recent events within his country, including its decision to move on after declaring last month’s ouster of Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi a coup.
Canada was one of the few countries in the world to describe Morsi’s ejection on July 3 as a coup, a label that carries strong political connotations as it raises questions about the legitimacy of his removal.
But the Conservative government has also said Morsi was responsible for his own ouster, which came after protests that saw tens of thousands of Egyptians rise up in anger throughout the country.

Police said Tuesday that a naked man who was tackled by restaurant patrons after entering the eatery holding and shaking an infant last week is the baby’s father, appeared to be under the influence of stimulants and suffered a heart attack while he was being handcuffed.
Los Banos resident John Anthony Ruiz, 42, remains in the hospital in critical condition after the Friday morning incident at a restaurant on the 8100 block of Monterey Street. According to police, Ruiz entered the eatery “acting bizarrely and making nonsensical statements” and “holding and shaking the baby.”
“Patrons of the restaurant distracted Ruiz, allowing others to free the baby from his grasp,” states a police release. “Ruiz responded violently and started imagesCAO2M4SJ
advancing toward the baby at which time several patrons tackled Ruiz and held him down until police officers arrived on scene.”
Ruiz resisted arrest even as officers used pepper spray in an unsuccessful attempt to subdue him. After a struggle, officers got handcuffs on Ruiz at which point he “stopped breathing and apparently suffered from cardiac arrest,” according to the report.
Medical personnel who were called to the scene were already waiting outside, and immediately worked on Ruiz and transported him to a hospital. No further information about the suspect is available at this time, said Gilroy police.
