Local man builds "Tiny Wedding Chapel" in time for Valentine's Day

(Sheridan, Wyo.) — We've heard of tiny houses. Is the "Tiny Wedding Chapel" the next thing? Sheridan resident Anthony Bemetz, who goes by Pastor Tony and is ordained by the Universal Life Church Ministries, has built his own "Tiny Wedding Chapel" in Sheridan just in time to perform Valentine's Day ceremonies. "There are lots of people these days who are going for small weddings," Bemetz said. "Some people — they don't want a big to-do, and others, they kind of want a Las Vegas style wedding, quick in and quick out," Bemetz said. "Some just want a small ceremony, a couple of witnesses, not a huge thing." So Bemetz, who says he has married many Sheridan couples over the years, including most recently a pair of high school sweethearts reunited after decades apart, decided to turn an 8"x12" space between Bowman and Holloway on 11th Street into a tiny chapel. "People were asking, 'Should we do it at your house? Should we do it at our house?' So I thought of this," Bemetz said. Bemetz said he will tailor a ceremony to the couples' taste, and can do religious and non-religious services seven days a week. "I leave it up to the couple, really," he said.
