Married in a Basement Chapel

There’s lots of hustle and bustle around the holidays, and it’s no exception at what may be the quickest and cheapest place to wed in the county – Santa Clara County’s tiny basement wedding chapel. It’s only $80, or $90 if you need a county-supplied witness. More than 2,600 couples tied the knot there last year: young proffessionals on lunch break, old lovers, starry-eyed lovers who met the week before, even gang members and couples about to have a baby.

“People really take this seriously,” one of the county workers said. “I find that romantic.” Read all about the colorful couples who’ve married in this small room off the cafeteria.
