Til Death Do You Part ­– Marry Yourself! is an experiential installation and performance piece which offers individuals the unique opportunity to get married – to themselves! Caricaturing the cliché, quickie Las Vegas wedding ­– complete with chapel, costuming, rings, alternative bouquets, multiple choice vows, and a wedding photo. Host-guides fuss of the participant on their big day as the Encouraging Priestess personally presides over the ceremony.

So what happens when you turn to the mirror and repeat those vows into your eyes? Are the vows for real? It is up to you to decide. Guests and attendees celebrate as you emerge, freshly married and ready to get out there and plan your honeymoon!
