    I think its about time we had a thread dedicated to wedding photos that involve the Model S.

    My former renter/now friend got married this weekend on Saltspring Island, BC -- otherwise known for being the home of @vger. My car was used as the transportation for the bride and groom around the island on the big day. The attached photo was snapped which I feel holds a shot at being one of the more unique Model S wedding photos we're likely to see.

    Aside: though it is a small island, I ended up racking up a pile of miles over the 36 hours we were there because my B&B was exactly on the opposite end of the island as compared to the wedding location. I took advantage of a 48Amp charger during the rehearsal dinner to top up, and this ended up being critical with all the driving I did the next day. And I got a nice top up at 110Volt at the B&B -- 10 hours of trickle charge is worthwhile. Lesson -- never turn down the chance to top up while you're away from home and far from superchargers. You won't be sorry.

    Thought for a second you married your car.

    Congrats to your friend!

    I suspect the overlap between people who have access to a Model S, and those that want wedding pictures with it, is pretty small. If there's more than a handful I'd be surprised.

    That said, congrats to your friends.

    Yes, I was attempting to be ironic. I think the photo is not only going to be one of the more unique such shots, but perhaps one of the only such shots!

    Glad to contribute to this thread.

    The groom joined the German Tesla forum to ask for a white Model S. It was meant as a surprise for his bride, and I can tell you that plan worked well! She nearly forgot her bridal bouquet when we picked her up.

    I'm getting married in August. I'm sure we'll get a picture with the car.

    Looks good!
    I believe someone in my area was getting married and was asking for a model s owner who would be willing to drive them (groom/bride) to and from different locations
    Don't remember if they found anyone to do it

    Congratulations!

    Is it just me, or did anyone else have a strong visceral negative reaction to how close the shovel and pitchfork are to the Model S?

    Hey, what about events that aren't weddings? We are both past that marriage thing. Although congrats to the newlyweds! This is at the Castillo di Amerosa medieval annual event in Calistoga, Ca. Tesla MS provided by T3, an exclusively Tesla limo service based in Napa, Ca. I didn't dare drive my own MS to a wine drinking event!

    On the parking lot, there was also a Leaf, an iMiev and my Ampera.

    Congratulations to the happy couple.

    Was anyone else's first thought, "I hope those roses have had the thorns removed?"

    On closer inspection, I think they may not be roses after all, but that was the first thing that popped into my head.

    You should not think so negative...

    Well, I checked a lot of things on the car, but not the type of the flowers.

    Sorry for the lack of a Tesla in the photos, but we couldn't take the traditional accouterments out in the gravel parking lot. However, as we drove 5300 miles (round trip) in the S85 for our wedding...

    Beautiful flowers, but I am also worried about any thorns on them!

    Wow! Big congratulations to both of you! (Well, all four of you, of course, but I only "know" two of you!)

    Girlfriend and I are always talking about Model S for our wedding. Not sure if we will own one by then, or hire one for the bridal car! Maybe a Model X with all 7 seats for the bridesmaids!
