You may have heard about a little something going on today that’s getting a lot of attention - the solar eclipse. The rare cosmic event has folks from across the country traveling to be in the path of totality to take it in, but some plan to celebrate it in an even bigger way. Couples are having destination weddings today, not on some tropical beach, but in the middle of the U.S. so they can say “I do” during the once-in-a-lifetime moment.

Cities that are on the eclipse’s path of totality, including Russellville, Arkansas and Tiffin, Ohio, have seen a spike in wedding registrations for today. Tiffin is hosting Elope at the Eclipse, a free mass wedding, and they report that 150 couples from various places in the U.S. have registered to take part. Russellville is also holding a free mass wedding today, with the celestial ceremony concluding just before the totality.

Other brides and grooms will be heading to various locations along the path of totality, including Micah Simoneaux and Kathryn Jordan, who are getting married today in Texas. Timing is their priority, they want to finish their vows and ceremony right before darkness falls during the eclipse. “It’s something that we’re always going to be able to reflect on,” Jordan says. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime event for most people, and you’re my once-in-a-lifetime person.”
