The Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science and Art, 1901 Mulberry St., Scranton, is holding a contest for an all-inclusive pop-up wedding.
For “Everhart in Love,” the museum has partnered with people and groups from across the community for the endeavor, which will see the winning couple marry there on Saturday, Feb. 29, at 5 p.m. The package includes not only the venue but also the attire, decor, photographer, food, officiant and favors and accommodates the winning couple and 33 guests.
Those interested in winning must already be engaged; have to like the social media pages of the businesses involved; must be able to get a marriage license by Saturday, Feb. 15; must sign contract to marry on that date and time; and cannot have standing contracts with other vendors. The couple must also be “willing to wear and rock selected styles chosen by the design team” and be “looking for a unique black tie wedding experience.”
Applicants must send a picture of themselves and their love story to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions sent through social media will not be accepted. The winner will be announced Monday, February 3.
