Lot of couples get married where they met, and for Sharon and Bill, that spot was the Eastern Hills Mall!

Here is their story, from the Eastern Hills Mall Facebook page:

“It all started over a bowl of LaRosa’s Macaroni & Cheese.”

Bill Gethoefer & Sharon Parucki’s love story begins right here at the Eastern Hills Mall & has continued to prosper! Sharon has worked at Vitamin World for 15 years. Bill has been with us for 4 years, working as a mall security officer. You could say it was “love at first bite.”

One day, Bill was raving about LaRosa’s Macaroni & Cheese & asked Sharon if she had ever tried it. She hadn’t. The next night, Sharon was working at Vitamin World & Bill, being the charming man that he is, made sure to bring her a bowl. From that day on, Bill & Sharon have been known by mall employees & staff as a delightful couple.

Just last week, Bill got down on one knee right in the middle of Vitamin World! As a crowd of curious shoppers peered in through the storefront, SHE SAID YES! He slipped the beautiful Kay Jewelers engagement ring on her finger & surprised her with matching diamond earrings. (Way to go Bill!)

Seeing them together, it is apparent that they are crazy about each other. We wish you two the best of luck! Congratulations!

Like this status to congratulate Bill & Sharon on their engagement!

Here are some of the pictures from the couple's wedding at the mall, courtesy of Eastern Hills' social media accounts. I heard from a source at the mall that the couple wanted to get married at the beach, but since the mall was bringing in sand for their "Summer In February" event (where they were building an indoor beach), why not have the wedding there?

Congratulations to them both -- I wish you a long happy life together!
