slides: Party Report: Portland’s Clown Wedding of the Century

Newlyweds Dingo and Olive at the Clown Wedding of the Century

Not every wedding reception includes a six-foot cockroach. But this was not your average wedding reception.

In what was being billed as “Potland’s Clown Wedding of the Century,” popular local children entertainers Olive Rootbeer and Dingo Dizmal got married on Saturday, December 13. After an afternoon ceremony held at the Clinton Street Theater, a bike parade—led by Dingo’s trademark colorful tall bike—wound its way through Southeast Portland to the Oaks Park Dance pavilion, where the newly hitched couple celebrated with their families and, according to the invitation, “several denizens of the Milky Way galaxy.”

Invited guests were instructed to dress in costume, and any possible description of the festivities sounds similar to the popular Stefon bit from Saturday Night Live. Olive and Dingo’s reception hadeverything: a best (wo)man dressed as the Tooth Fairy; the before-mentioned six-foot cockroach; clowns in full make-up pelting the couple with toast; a little girl serenading the couple with a rendition of “Let it Go”; music provided by the Sandy High School jazz band; spotted costumes include Gareth from ‘Labyrinth’, Jake the Dog from Adventure Time, two women dressed as Slinky toys; and the newly-minted bride receiving a heartfelt speech from her father, dressed in a complete full sad-clown outfit.  

The biggest challenge of attending the event was trying to decide on a wedding fit. What do you get for two clowns that have everything? After all, seeing how Olive and Dingo looked at each other throughout the evening, it’s pretty clear that is exactly what they have.
