It was the first-ever wedding today at the SPAM Museum in Austin, where a couple from Liverpool, England tied the knot surrounded by memorabilia featuring the iconic product. Hormel Foods Brand Manager Jaynee Sherman says Mark Benson officially added “I Love SPAM” to his name last year and when his girlfriend, Anne Mousley, asked if the SPAM Museum would consider hosting a wedding, “it was like a no-brainer. Why wouldn’t we?” As a gift to the bride and groom, Hormel is sending them to Hawaii in just a few days for — you guessed it — the annual SPAM Jam Festival.
And could there be more weddings at the Spam Museum in the future? Sherman says, “It is very possible, with the love of SPAM around the world, that we could get more requests for having a wedding here at the SPAM Museum. This is a very unique situation and we will take the requests in as they come and we will see how that works out for everyone involved.”
