A wedding chapel comes to your doorstep


Do you crave an offbeat, kitschy marriage ceremony but don’t want to travel for a Las Vegas wedding? In that case, why not have the wedding chapel come to you? 

According to a news in the Los Angeles Times, the Reverend Darrell Best has a 1940s-era firetruck that has been converted into a chapel so he can go on the road to marry engaged couples.

Earlier this year, Best appeared on Country Music Television’s Trick My Truck program and mechanics added stained glass windows, a pipe organ, an altar and two pews, the Times reports.

“It fits me, the bride, the groom, the best man and the maid of honor,” Best told the news provider. “It gets a little crowded, but it works.”

And what can couples expect to pay when they say their “I dos” as part of this unusual type of reverse destination weeding ?

Best says he charges $2 per mile plus $200 to drive his truck to couples across the country from Chicago, Illinois, where he resides.
