I Do: Star Trek Style

2 min read

The Tech Museum of Innovation, located in the Silicon Valley, is offering a Star Trek wedding for one lucky couple.

Last autumn, a lucky couple won a Star Trek-themed wedding at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, and now the same opportunity to win a wedding package is being offered to those on the West Coast.

According to a press release from The Tech, the Tech Museum is hosting a contest to select a lucky couple to get married, or to renew their vows, on the U.S.S. Enterprise bridge from the original series in Star Trek: The Exhibition.

Couples across the galaxy are eligible to win the ultimate wedding package, which includes exclusive use to the bridge during the ceremony; a private museum room for a reception; two-night’s stay at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, and a two-tier, Star Trek-themed wedding cake from Bijan Bakery & Café.

To enter, couples simply submit a photo along with a few short paragraphs on why they should be picked to say “I do” or renew their vows on the bridge. Deadline for entries is February 3rd, with the winning couple receiving the highest tally of worldwide votes cast on the Tech’s Facebook page from February 4th – 10th.

The winning couple will be announced just before Valentine’s Day, with the ceremony to take place in March or early April.

“We’ve seen many a Star Trek character fall in love and get married on the series,” said Peter Friess, president of The Tech Museum. “But how many couples actually have the chance to get married in real life, on one of the most iconic, science fiction set pieces ever? This will be a unique ceremony that they’ll remember forever. And it will surely be one of the most unusual events ever at the museum.”
