And here’s what it looks like today. Spiffier. I like the old building better. I mean, if you’re going to get married in Las Vegas, don’t you want it to be midnight and in a Whitman’s Candy Sampler box? I know if I was getting married in Las Vegas that’s how I’d want it.

I dunno. I may take out the car. I’ve taken it out and put it back in already because it just didn’t look right without the car. But I like the idea of an empty street.

  1. I like the older building a lot better too. It looks like something out of a David Lynch movie!

    And your description of a Whitman’s Sampler box was perfect…

  2. Oh, goodie, a comment on the wedding chapel. The old building is just such an unbeatable classic. There aren’t many buildings that make you wonder at every foot that ever stepped over its threshhold. This is one of them.

  3. Keep the car. It makes the irreality feel pretty real.

    The scene reminds me of my old haunts in Lakewood, only the Cupid sign was a Malley’s Chocolates and there was musicians swapshop (might now be a headshop) across the road. It’s a great stretch of street to walk.

    Very nice. Thank you.

  4. Love this pic! Got married here 35 years ago. We have a picure with our 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo out front all decked out!!
