Considered to be the wedding capital of the Pacific Northwest, Coeur d' Alene already has several business in the wedding industry. But, lately this industry has been a big news making topic locally. Recently Idaho began allowing same sex marriage, making the landmark Hitching Post wedding chapel to refuse marrying non traditional couples. Something that has brought about lawsuits, protests, etc...
But soon, Coeur d' Alene area couples will have a new wedding chapel option with the opening of a new business called, The Heart of it All in Downtown Coeur d' Alene.
The Heart of it All is currently under construction as it will take over what was a vacant storefront. The chapel will occupy what was last HippieKat, a vintage clothing store at 314 N. 4th St. only blocks away from Coeur d' Alene Lake.
An official opening is expected soon , perhaps during the month of April. The Heart of it All will be a " judgment free wedding chapel " that will marry both traditional and same sex couples. This new business is being started by local residents Dave & Vesta Sterenchock.
The Heart of it All will be able to do all weddings from full weddings to quick, more Las Vegas style weddings, both indoors and outdoors.
While work is already happening at 314 N. 4th , some more work and items are needed for The Heart of it All to officially open their doors. Because of this the business has launched a fund raising web site gofundme.com . To donate, and get more information on what they are purposing to do at The Heart of it All, check out their page at-
