As thousands of foodies lined the streets to get their hands on the iconic treats, a young 19-year-old Brooke, caught the attention of Blake, then 20.

Fast forward a few years, and Krispy Kreme’s two biggest fans got married in an intimate ceremony at Adelaide Botanic Gardens, as their guests were gifted a box of original glazed doughnuts.

‘Who would have thought out of billions of people in the world, two people would meet at a doughnut shop,’ Blake, a car sales executive, told Daily Mail Australia.

As their romantic story goes, Blake met Brooke in a glaze-y twist of fate when the pair were among the fans lining up ahead of the opening of the West Croydon store.

‘I went down to Krispy Kreme that night not looking for anything except some delicious doughnuts, until I saw Brooke just waiting in line in front of me. She had bright red hair, and I thought she was gorgeous, something about her just caught my eyes,’ Blake said.

‘Her brother actually offered us his motorbike magazine to read so I glanced over and saw her.

‘We sort of connected eyes a bit. It started to rain so we had to move under cover. We separated but I couldn’t get her out of my head, I knew I had to talk to her.’

After exchanging a few looks, Blake said he stumbled across a picture of Brooke on the store’s official Facebook page so he decided to send her a message.

But unfortunately his message went into her ‘spam folder’.

Feeling nervous, Blake said he mustered up the courage to speak to her.

‘I knew I had to talk to her. About two hours later, I finally had the guts to go up and talk to her. I said “I sent you a message on Facebook”, but she told me she never got it,’ he said.

‘We ended up talking for the next nine and a half hours, getting to know one another. We enjoyed each other’s company, and we connected so well.’

By December 2015, Blake decided to put a ring on it. 

‘I wanted to get Krispy Kreme involved in the engagement so I got four heart-shaped doughnuts with “will you marry me?” on them,’ he said.

‘Brooke had no idea. I fabricated a story about meeting a colleague at his home for dinner so they wanted us to bring dessert. I suggested picking up Krispy Kreme on the way to their place. I was stressing but everything went to plan.

‘We arrived and they had closed off the store. There was rose petals and candles lit on a table in the middle of the store. And that’s how we got engaged.

‘I secretly had our engagement party organised at my brother’s house. The plan worked out so well. It was a unique experience and I’ll keep using that word throughout our love story because that’s how we met.’

And their dream wedding became a reality over the weekend, as local businesses and their Krispy Kreme store rallied behind the couple to bring special day forward.

‘We knew one day we’d get married and to have Krispy Kreme involved made it a little bit more special,’ Brooke told Daily Mail Australia.

‘Our wedding cost around $16,000, which included the wedding dress, food, venue as well as the different elements Krispy Kreme provided.

‘It’s ticked off different things to make our day more memorable. We’re just excited the day has finally come. I’m glad I got to finally walk down the aisle.

Blake said: ‘Krispy Kreme took on our wedding like it was their own. 

‘They have been fantastic throughout the seven-month planning process. Moving forward, we will always have that place we call home.

‘We love Krispy Kreme. If anyone wants a doughnut, we always love to go there. We just hope Krispy Kreme will be involved for the rest of our lives.

‘It’s just incredible to be able to celebrate our day at the place we first met. But if it wasn’t for Brooke’s brother, I wouldn’t have noticed her.

‘Going to Krispy Kreme that night, was the best decision I ever made. Everything happens for a reason.’
