Who doesn’t love Target? I sure do! But this recently married couple who lives in Miami, Florida love Target so much that they had their wedding pictures shot at their local store. “We’re basically each others first boyfriend and first girlfriend,” the bride told ABC News, who added it was her idea to shoot their wedding photos inside Target.
Michael Delvalle, 27, and Isabella Sablan, 27, wanted their first photos as husband and wife to be at Target.
Sablan told ABC News that her and Delvalle have been together for nearly eight years, having met at age 19 while working at Hollister. While dating, they took trips to Target so often, they felt it was only right to include it in their big day.
“The basis of our relationship is built on Target. We probably go two to three times a week. We like long walks at Target instead of on the beach,” the bride said.
Rich, a full-time wedding photographer, was delighted to take on the challenge and thought “it was an awesome idea,” he told ABC News. Rich said he “played off the energies” of the newlyweds.
“When we needed something to do on a slow Thursday night, Target was always there with open doors. Even if we didn’t need anything, Target always knew what was best for us and it never failed to send us home without some sort of delicious treat, household good, or one of those beautiful red tag clearance items that now consume our entire home décor,” the groom said.
Before heading to Target to get their wedding pictures shot — the couple said “I Do” in front of 8 loved ones at Miami Beach Botanical Gardens on January 26th.
“When it came time to decide on a location to shoot our engagement photos, we knew it had to be somewhere with deep personal meaning- somewhere that contributed to the development of our relationship- so naturally our first inclination was the enthralling aisles of our favorite emporium,” Delvalle said.
“If you ask any of our friends, none of them would be surprised that we chose to do this at Target- THAT’s how obsessed we are,” Delvalle said.
The couple love Target so much they created a game. Any time they spot a stray cup, they take a picture of it and uploaded it to an Instagram page they created called Cups of Target.
