‘Goonies’ House To Host Group Wedding Ceremony

ASTORIA, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Heeeeey youuuuu guuuuuys! If you are a “never say die” fan of the 1985 teen flick, The Goonies, you can do the truffle shuffle all the way to the altar.

Why Knot, a wedding business specializing in non-traditional weddings, is offering fans of the cult classic the opportunity to get married at the original Goonies house in Astoria, Oregon, on June 4 at 7 p.m.

The mass wedding ceremony will be one of several activities taking place during the Goonies 20th Anniversary Celebration hosted by the Astoria Chamber of Commerce.

Cheryl Johnson, the co-owner of Why Knot and a certified ceremony officiator, says she decided to hold the Goonies service after seeing a documentary on the film – although she has yet to see the original flick.

She figures about 150 tourists a week come to sneak a peek at the Victorian house where characters Mikey and Brand Walsh lived.

Johnson says the wedding won’t cost a bag of Spanish doubloons either: For $150, couples get a complete ceremony including photos, flowers, two champagne flutes, and even a Goonies-themed cake.
