We think it's the first time it's ever been done. On Sunday, August 21 a couple pledged their eternal love for one another on the deck of the windmill. The audience was seated at the base of the windmill. The procession made it's way up the steps to the main entrance. The party then disappeared into the building and resurfaced on the deck.

The weather cooperated wonderfully including a gentle wind coming from the west which oriented the sales of the windmill almost perfectly. When I arrived at the museum in the morning the wind was clearly out of the north. I was told that the groom had sincerely asked God to provide a west wind to move the sales to the appropriate position.

The reception was held on picnic tables in the MHV "food court."
