Quincy chapel turns into drive-thru of love
QUINCY, Mass. -- Forget the fast food, a local wedding chapel is turning their business into a drive-thru of love.
Jerry Pratt and Kate Sousa wanted to get hitched in Las Vegas, but their family couldn't go, so they brought a little bit of Vegas to New England.
“Probably I do two or three drive-thru's a week,” said Michelle Lydon, owner.
They chose the Lydon Chapel in Quincy to perform their drive-thru wedding.
“Not a first marriage for either of us, so the idea is fantastic. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s fun -- it’s different,” said Kate Sousa, bride.
It sure was different. The couple rolled up in a convertible, and Chapel owner and Justice of Peace Michelle Lydon performed the ceremony.
And after the vows and a quick exchange of rings - it's done!
It was a drive this couple will never forget.
“It’s a nice day and we got a nice car to drive in…and a beautiful wife,” said Jerry Pratt, groom.
Besides weddings, the chapel also does funerals, which caught the eyes of some reality show producers, so they filmed a pilot there last year and now they are trying to sell that pilot to the networks, so stay tuned.
