Nebraska Couple Chooses Cemetery As Wedding Venue

Nebraska Couple Chooses Cemetery As Wedding Venue

A Nebraska couple has chosen an unusual venue for their wedding. 

Janyl Jumadinova and Oliver Bonham-Carter exchanged vows Saturday in Forest Lawn Cemetery. The ceremony took place in a 101-year-old chapel designed by an Omaha architect who helped design Joslyn Castle and the Joslyn Art Museum. 

The bride is from Kyrgyzstan and holds a firm belief in spirits. Some of the groom's ancestors are buried in the cemetery. 

The couple married earlier this year in a small ceremony in Pennsylvania. They wanted to hold another ceremony so friends and family could bear witness.  

Relatives of the couple traveled over 6,000 miles to attend.
