Drive-through weddings reach Florida

I enjoy that game Florida or Germany*? It's so true - if there's a really weird news story it almost certainly comes from one of the two.

This one comes from Florida:

A store north of Tampa is offering weddings from a drive-through window. Couples who pull up with a marriage license, a witness over the age of 18 and $20 can tie the knot without turning off their car engine.

The store's owner, Rev. Sharon Burnett, 58, says the behind-the-wheel weddings are "no different than standing at the courthouse." Burnett, a notary public and minister, opened her Mother Earth Goddess metaphysical store in a former dry-cleaning business in early July. At first she did not know what to do with the sliding glass doors where customers used to pick up their clothes; then she thought of the wedding drive-through.

She has yet to officiate any in-vehicle vows.

It's especially funny that she didn't set out to do weddings, she just decided that she might as well use her drive-up window. I hope nobody really wants to get married in their car! It seems kind of lonely to me.

Have a great weekend! Don't forget to come back on Monday for a week-long spooky wedding special!


*Apparently this is an Adam Carolla/Jimmy Kimmel thing? I had no idea.

  1. Actually, there have always been drive-thru weddings in Florida... there used to be a drive-thru chapel called "Vows" in Sunrise, Florida, the town next to Weston, Florida, where I lived for ten years. It was pretty tacky, LOL.
