If tying the knot atop of an aircraft doesn't take the cake for unique weddings, how about six feet under? A young Michigan couple held their entire wedding ceremony, including dancing, at a funeral home in St. Joseph Township.
I've heard of having some rigid wedding attendees, but this Michigan couple took their nuptials to a deeper level when they said "I Do" at the Starks and Menchinger Family Funeral Home in St. Joseph Township.
An Associated Press report explains:
Their reception, including dinner and dancing, also was held at the funeral home.
This room is usually filled with sadness and contemplation, but today it is filled with joy and celebration," the Rev. Greg Prather said at the start of Saturday's ceremony.
The couple, Jason and Rachel Storm, didn't seem to mind their date with the dead at all, with the groom, who is the home's director, comparing the funeral home experience to that of a church saying "I look at it as, if you go to a church and get married, how many caskets do you think have been rolled down that aisle?" A viable argument when one looks at it from such a simplistic perspective.
Still the 24-year-old couple had no issues with the number deceased that shared in the ceremony, although it was reported that family members initially refused to accept the invitation.
Well wishes to the newlyweds and lets hope their marriage serves as a model union in terms of happiness and years.
