You’ve heard a lot on PSFK about pop-up shops, but this month, the 303 GRAND event space and rotating store front in Brooklyn will be sponsoring the first ever pop-up wedding chapel. The concept was the brain-child of 303 co-founder Ruth Heronemus, who upon a visit to a New York court house discovered that those wishing to have a quick, no-mess wedding often had to wait on epic Kafka-esque lines along with those paying delinquent fines (or much worse). It was then that Heronemus had the idea to create an event where couples could have a  small and unique wedding for an affordable price, without sacrificing any of the spontaneity of elopement.

So for the entire month of June 303 GRAND will be transformed into wedding central, with three weeks of events leading up to the opening of an actual chapel where couples will be able to get married. Partnering with the space is  Brooklyn Bride, The Wedding Library and matrimonial behemoth Martha Stewart Weddings. In addition, they are also giving away a dream pop-up wedding personally styled by the Martha Stewart Weddings team, complete with a honeymoon vacation to one of the couples. This will be followed up by a handful of weddings through the 28th of June at 303GRAND. Be sure to check back at the 303 GRAND and Brooklyn Chapel websites frequently for updates!
