EDC is for lovers.

While most people consider Marshmello's big reveal as Tiesto or the pyrotechnics breaking on the bassPOD stage as the most memorable moments of this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival, dozens of couples will remember it as the place they got married or renewed their vows. 

EDC 2016 featured two chapels with officiants running Vegas-style ceremonies with an EDM twist, complete with photographer and a golf cart offering "JUST MARRIED" rides. Couples had to register ahead of time to get married, as well as pay to get a license—a small price for every raver’s dream wedding. The festival also offered commitment and best friend ceremonies at a nearby arch for those that hadn't planned ahead, or just decided to declare their love spur of the moment.

Myspace visited the chapels to chat with 7 over the moon couples about their nuptials.

Jessie & Brian (Engaged)


Jessie and Brian were officiating the weddings at EDC all weekend. When they wrapped the final wedding around 3:30am on Monday morning Brian asked Jessie to marry him. She said yes with both her tears and the giant kiss she gave Brian. I interviewed a still shaking and crying Jessie as well as a smiling Brian.

How did you guys meet?

Jessie: A few years back I was hired at a chapel that he managed and I became his personal assistant. We left there and officially started dating 15 months ago because at the chapel we weren’t able to date. We started working at the same restaurant for a while, but now we’re doing our own thing.

How did you get involved doing weddings at EDC?

Brian: I was just thinking about how I wanted to make it special and I wanted to make it a big deal. And what better place? In front of a hundred thousand people?

Do you usually go to music festivals outside of working them?

Brian: I don’t usually have the time. But I would love to and I love EDC. I’ve actually had a little bit of breaks this year where I’ve been able to walk around a bit and it’s been amazing.

Jessie: Last year was my official first one. But this year we’re going to stay here for a little bit now and actually enjoy it. So it’s going to be great.
