Field of Dreams movie site now a wedding venue

Posted: Updated:

The Field of Dreams hosts its first wedding tonight.

Managers of the iconic attraction say they decided it was time to move in a new direction -- after getting so many requests. 

Every bride dreams of their wedding day but this one is a true home run.

The Chicago newlyweds decided to exchange their vows at the field of dreams in Dyersville. 

"He proposed to me here when we first came here and we first drove up, it just felt right and magical.  There's nothing like it around.  It's different and unique,"  said Sarah Kennie.

It's the first time the popular tourist attraction has hosted such an event.

"We decided to finally host formal weddings here for the first time because we had such a calling.  We turned away probably 5 or 6 brides in the last two years letting them know we never close the field and we wanted to keep it private, but we felt the demand was too strong," said manager Denise Stillman.

It was not a traditional wedding. The bride and grooms vows played on the theme of the movie.

"I can't image my life without you by my side. Is this Heaven or Iowa you ask? It sure looks and feels like both," said Sarah during her vows.

The bride was also escorted down the aisle by ghost players all coming out of the corn fields just like in the movie.

Those interested in using the Field of Dreams for their wedding ceremony, should know they can only use the attraction at night on Fridays and Saturdays. Managers say they have already booked weddings for future dates.
