Locations are never booked ahead of time, planning is minimal and fingers are crossed that you and your partner don’t get asked to leave before you are pronounced husband and wife, or wife and wife.

PopWed Co., which started last January, procures the wedding license, chooses a creative location, takes the photographs and performs the ceremony.

The unusual venues are what make it fun, PopWed’s Maggie Winters tells NPR’s Linda Wertheimer. Some couples may not want to throw a big party. “They still want to commemorate the day in a really special way, but dial it back,” says Winters, so it’s just the two of them focusing on the moment instead of stressing out about a party.
