I officiated my sister in law's wedding for free, although she insisted on buying something for me.  LOTR dwarf minis.  Her aunt was the videographer, who somehow switched the camera off just before the ceremony.  The venue was one of those Mormon church basketball courts.  All in all, much cheaper than my own wedding.

Wat. Are Mormon churches so known for their basketball courts that this is a ubiquitous thing I've just never heard of?

this person needs to join f13

i have questions

The closest I can get her to real internets is facebook. One of the best parts of doing the Colorado show is we get to have dinner with her every week, and hear crazy stories or her exploits. And see pictures like one of her from the 80's looking very punk and drunk, squooshed between Hulk Hogan and Iron Shiek.

And yeah, the license was from El Paso county Colorado, cheap and easy to get one there spur of the moment. You don't even need an officiate.

Yes.  And most of the Mormon churches I've been in have the exact same internal layout, too.

I've photographed three weddings in the past where I actually charged for it. Only asked $500 - $700 because I know I'm not a whole lot better than a complete amateur and I was trying to get established. I'd already done a couple for free for friends and family, so I had some experience.

One of the three didn't pay me. Not because of the photo quality - we never even reached the point of them seeing the photos, they just couldn't afford to pay me. The other two clearly wanted to negotiate the price lower (average rate around here for wedding photos is $1500 - $2500).

I also did engagement photos for a couple once. Three days of shooting, a week of editing, and the Bride liked absolutely none of it. Fuck her, I still use several of them in my portfolio because they were damn good shots. In total for all of that, I got lunch and a beer.

Fuck Wedding Photography.

It's not really a "basketball court." It is a general meeting area, usually with a stage for shows and such, that is used for all sorts of things, including having retractable basketball hoops. Often times they are even carpeted (or at least were way back in the day) which led to some fun rug burns.  Wardball (as B-ball at these places is known) is some of the most vicious, elbow throwing, white-boy basketball on the planet.

If it helps, I have been on the inside of a mormon church several times as a youth, and all I ever saw was the basketball court.  Is it possible that all this time, mormon churches really are just made up wholly out of basketball courts?

Basketball courts and full immersion baptismal fonts pretty much.

Just because we are on the topic, big day down at BYU today as they sold caffeinated soda on campus for the first time since the 50s.

Man Utah outside of Salt Lake is mega messed up.

(Not that Salt Lake isn't weird, but it is waaaaaay closer to normal than the rest of the state)

The thing with churches and basketball courts has to do with obtaining bank loans.  Reasoning is that if the church fails to make the loan, the bank can re-sell the church as a school or rec center.

LOL if you think the LDS church has to take out loans to build wardhouses.

Hell, lets be honest, they probably make the local businesses apologize for giving them money.

Sorry, I was talking about my experience with the local churches.  I got nothing for the LDS basketball thing.

Probably why you don't see Catholics holding mass in a basketball court, either.

We actually did that at my high school, since the school didn't have a church on premises big enough to hold the entire student body.   awesome, for real
