All future proposals will kale in comparison to this one.

One year ago, a Florida man (no, not that one) was shopping in a Miami Whole Foods when he spotted the woman who would turn out to be his future fiancée. Vladimir Romannikov was grabbing for a Kombucha, when he noticed something else — or someone else, rather — who he wanted to grab: a young woman named Monica Dehombre.

He decided to [celery] stalk her for a bit before he made his move.

“I see Monica and I’m like walking around the store. I’m trying to follow her a little, trying to start a conversation but she’s really serious about her shopping,” said Romannikov.

When the they reached the checkout — cash register two, to be precise — he popped the question. “So you shop all organic huh?” Guys, take notes!

From there the two began a lovely romance, and when Vladimir decided to propose a year after their organic meeting he knew the upscale market would be the perfect place. So he lured Monica to Whole Foods under the guise that he had a craving for yucca cheese rolls, the couple’s favorite snack, and then in front of a store full of yuppie shoppers bent down on one knee and popped a different question at cash register two.

The Era of Public Proposals Needs to End

“Who knew you could find Prince Charming while shopping for Kombucha?” Monica said. Who knew indeed!

She added: “Shop at Whole Foods, find love.” OK, this is starting to sound like paid content. But hey, we’re just happy it wasn’t a flash mob.

Just remember: All’s fair trade in love and war.
