Portland's Aviation Gin Offers Unique Leap Year Wedding PackageSource: Google Street View

For those lovebirds looking for a truly unique wedding experience, Aviation Gin in Portland is rolling out the welcome mat, complete with gin and vows. Celebrating Leap Year in an unconventional manner, the distillery is offering a quirky and budget-friendly wedding package for the extra day we get on February 29. For a modest $290, couples can tie the knot amid the scent of juniper berries and curious onlookers.

Aviation Gin has stirred up quite the buzz with this promotion. According to KOIN, the package includes a ceremony right outside Ryan Reynolds' office (though the actor himself won't be present), five mini cocktails, sheet cake, and a tour of the distillery. The only prerequisites? Be at least 21 years of age, have a marriage license, and, perhaps challenging for some, remain sober when saying "I do."

Why choose Aviation's distillery as your wedding venue? "Because you love love and gin and why not? What else are you doing on Leap Year?!" Aviation Gin quipped, suggesting that the unique date lends itself to out-of-the-box celebrations. As reported by Gin Raiders, the distillery emphasized the rarity of February 29 and their excitement to pair the special day with moments of love, bolstered, of course, by the company's signature spirit.

While lovebirds enjoy their special day, they'll be conducting their nuptials right in the thick of the distillery's operations, amidst, "the intoxicating aroma of botanicals and... complete strangers," says Aviation Gin. But far from a traditional private affair, these weddings will double as public performances. As the ceremonies unfold, attendees will be joining a tour whose typical focus on crafting gin will be pleasantly disrupted by impromptu matrimony. Whether or not the presence of an officiant, "who's as thrilled about gin as they are about love," facilitates a smooth sequence of events is yet to be seen, as per Gin Raiders.

Interested couples can find more information about this Leap Year wedding offer and sign up for their chance to marry in a gin distillery via the Aviation Gin website. It's not every day one gets the opportunity to celebrate their union with a splash of gin and a room full of strangers, but for those who've fancied such a scenario, February 29 at Aviation Gin promises to deliver just that.
