You want to get married. . .where?
I’ve seen it all, folks! Weddings up in the air, under water, in strange and exotic locations. It seems, these days, folks are trying to outdo one another when it comes to location. I remember a wedding that I catered years ago–the ceremony took place in a small chapel, but the reception was to take place in the bride’s backyard. I arrived at her house early to begin the process of putting together the cake and prepping the foods. I ended up decorating the backyard/deck instead of going to the ceremony. What a blast! By the time the wedding party arrived, I had that place looking like a true reception area! (FYI, this was the bride’s second wedding. Her FIRST took place on a driveway with a train going by in the background!)
I try to keep locales in mind when I’m writing my novels. For example, in WHITE AS SNOW (part of the ALLEGHENY HOPES collection), the heroine falls in love with a Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback! They get married on the fifty-yard-line. (Sorry folks, I couldn’t resist! It was just TOO perfect!) To learn more about their love story, check out ALLEGHENY HOPES. OR, if you’re an e-reader, take note of the fact that WHITE AS SNOW is now available for the first time ever in kindle format! Woo-hoo! It’s also available in other e-formats, as well, so check it out!
In the meantime, what’s the most unusual locale you’ve witnessed for a wedding? Let’s swap stories!
