A very ferry wedding! Kentucky couple holds wedding ceremony on the M/V Wenatchee

SEATTLE - A couple from Kentucky tied the knot this weekend while riding a ferry between Seattle and Bainbridge Island.

The Washington State Department of Transportation says Lara and Matt Wilder got married aboard the Wenatchee ferry on June 11.

Lara first visited Seattle in 2007 and fell in love with the ferries. She loved the experience so much that she brought her then-boyfriend Matt to visit the Emerald City. Since then, the couple says they have regularly visited the Pacific Northwest.

Lara and Matt say they knew they wanted a unique wedding and decided getting hitched on the ferries they love so much was the perfect venue.


The couple wed in front of about 30 friends and family who traveled from Kentucky and South Carolina.

The newlyweds are now on their honeymoon in Alaska and say they plan on many more visits to Seattle.
