COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

Many who walk through downtown Coeur d'Alene may just see an empty building at 314 North 4th Street, but Dave and Vesta Sterenchock see their future. 

Over the last few months the couple has been transforming the vacant building into The Heart Of It All, a wedding chapel of the unconventional sort.

"I knew I wanted to do alternative weddings, gay weddings, handfasting, basically people who didn't fit into the mainstream wedding box," says Vesta.

Dave laughs and says themes are in their ballpark too, he's been waiting to dress up and officiate a wedding as Darth Vader.

"We can give you the wedding of your dreams, no matter how big or elaborate," says Vesta.

The reason this couple is so passionate about non-traditional weddings is because that's how they tied the knot after meeting in spiritual chat room online.

"We wanted to go with an earthy, really mystical kind of wedding," says Vesta showing off pictures of a wedding she described as Celtic.

The chapel is still bare and the couple has been working well into the night to make sure that the venue is ready for a late spring opening in May.
