Wind Farms: Could They Be The Next Big Wedding Venue?/RNN
Love is in the air – and in the wind. One Energy hosted the wedding ceremony Saturday, June 2 for local couple Erin Kashawlic and Chris Roekle at the North Findlay Wind Campus. Tying the knot under wind turbines made for a unique, unprecedented setting that Erin and Chris knew their friends and family would always remember. “Having our wedding under wind turbines brought that wowfactor to our friends and family. We picked these turbines because Findlay is our home and we wanted to share more insight into our lives since most of our family doesn’t live around here,” said Erin. A first-of-its-kind Wind Campus® wedding venue, the wow factor was definitely there. But what makes these turbines so special for sharing that personal insight is Erin’s role in the development and construction of the Wind Campus® in 2015. Chris remarked on their big day being special already, but “what makes it even more special is that Erin has had a big part in growing the company that put up the turbines and even was a part of laying the foundation for these turbines specifically.”
As a Technical Manager for One Energy, Erin sees these turbines every day. Holding the wedding under them allowed her, Chris, and their families to see wind energy from a different angle. “They all think it’s the coolest thing ever,” said Chris of his family’s reaction to the Green Campus℠ venue. “And they were really excited to take tours of a turbine beforehand.” In addition to turbine tours, guests also enjoyed yard games surrounded by wind-themed decorations like oversized pinwheels. One Energy was delighted to host the newlyweds and show their families around. “Our Wind Campus® is enjoyed every day by our employees, customers, and guests,” said Angela DeBoskey, Head of Storytelling for One Energy. “Erin and Chris exchanging vows just a couple hundred feet from the spinning turbines, surrounded by family and friends, was a perfect backdrop to a beautiful day.” For more information about the North Findlay Wind Campus and the wind turbines, visit www.oneenergy.com.
