Livonia Subway gives special wedding gift to the couple who met there
Julie Bushart and Zack Williams tied the knot on Friday. It was a wedding planned like many, with a ceremony in a church and a reception to follow – after a visit to a sandwich shop in Livonia.
Before the reception, Bushart and Williams had to make a special stop. They couldn’t let their wedding day pass without stopping at the place where they met: a metro in Livonia.
Before the wedding, the couple reached out to the folks at Subway, recounting how and where they met. The story of the bride and groom caught the attention of the company. Subway reached out to the couple to help them commemorate the day, Subway-style.
After the ceremony, the couple headed to the subway at 30979 Five Mile Road, where they first met. They hopped into a subway wrapped convertible for a few photos before heading to a reception. The newlyweds posed for photos in the convertible before heading to their reception.
As a free late-night snack at the reception, Subway is expected to deliver the couple’s favorite Subway sandwiches: an Italian BMT and American ham and cheese, along with Subway cookies. They will serve about 200 guests, according to a spokesperson for Subway.
Mom knows better
You could say that the couple’s reunion followed the advice of “mom knows best”.
It was Bushart’s mother who first spotted Williams, according to the couple’s marriage profile on theknot.com and a press release from Subway.
It was December 8, 2017, and Bushart took the day off to do birthday shopping with her mom. They stopped at Subway (a favorite) for lunch.
“We walked in and was standing in front of us this handsome dude ** mom is starting to nudge me uncontrollably as I try not to start laughing **,” Bushart wrote. “My mother said to me: ‘You give her your number!’ Anyone who knows me knows I’m MUCH too shy for that. So I said, ‘YOU, go give him my number.’ “
Bushart’s mother chased Zack into the parking lot to give him Julie’s phone number.
“He called me half an hour later and the rest is history. Talk about the ultimate mum-wing! Our first date was two days later.”
The couple could not be reached for comment because, well, you can imagine they’ve been busy this week with the wedding and everything.
