Churches and wedding venues have been booked for months by brides and grooms who want to be married on July 7, 2007, which is 7-07-07.
Organizers at the Belle Chapel in Snohomish, an 1885 Victorian wedding chapel, have an idea for couples who couldn’t book a location for that date.
At the stroke of midnight on 7-07-07, marriage ceremonies will be performed every 15 minutes until 7 a.m. on 7-07-07.
Couples will receive a complimentary champagne toast at the reception, a commemorative Belle Chapel certificate of marriage and a formal photo.
Packages start at $577.
