WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts couple were married at the same Dunkin' Donuts where their young love splintered nearly 30 years ago.

Valerie Sneade and Jason Roy were joined by family, friends and customers buying coffee and pastries at a Dunkin' Donuts in Worcester.

The two parted ways in 1992 not long after a conversation at the same shop about their future. Roy joined the Navy and had kids. Sneade moved to Florida and became a singer and actress.

Both had first marriages and later divorced. They reconnected in Worcester in February 2018 when Roy sat in the front row at Sneade's Valentine's Day-themed musical revue.
