    Unusual Wedding Locations

    Did you get married somewhere other than the traditional Church location?

    Beach?
    Garden?
    Mountain top?
    By a lake?


    Pics would be nice, too!

    So was it romantic or creepy? And did they dress accordingly?

    Got married in a church, but got engaged on a sail boat during a regatta with my proposal lettered onto the sail, a spinnaker. I worked foredeck (in front of the mast) and my wife was in charge of trimming head sails (jib, genoa, spinnaker). All the crew and many of the spectator boats knew it was coming, but my wife to be had no idea. We put the sail with the proposal on it up, and she was so intent on flying the sail correctly, that she never read it. When she finally did, she fell down on the deck. We went into the marina with the sail flying. The boat owner and crew even turned the sail around so that it could be read as we headed in. Originally we had it flying so that only the people on the boat could see the sail. Do not have any pictures of it to post on this computer.

    They didn't dress weird. It was weird enough already. I suppose it was a rather romantic event, even if it was strange.

    The Lakeview Banquet and Event Center
    Laingsburg, Michigan

    Out in the middle of no where, had it not been raining that day it would have been held outdoors under the big willow tree. It's over looking a lake.

    Oh, and apparently Al Capone liked to hang out there back in the day.

    A good friend of mine had his wedding on a chartered tour boat, it was really cool and unusual. I've got a wedding in a park this coming Saturday, so that's a little different. Myself, I had a plain church and reception hall wedding, but it was a great time. We did get engaged at the Crayola factory though...

    Mt wife's dad has a big house on the water. We had every thing right in the back yard over looking the ocean. We had the band and dance floor and bar at he back of the house. All the tables were set along the water. The caterer used the kitchen of the house to prepare the food. We got permittion to use a parking lot down the road for parking and had shuttle busses take people to the cars, or hotel rooms. It was a nice set up.

    I guess it's not all that unusual, but we got married at the same place the Grizwold's did, oh yeah and Kelli Rippa too.

    My sister just got proposed to in an unusual place. She was at the doctor's office with her boyfriend. They were there to do the sonogram on THEIR new baby. He proposed to her there.
