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 wont 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.
