Now This is an Alternative Wedding!

With all the debate in feminist circles about what kind of wedding a feminist should have (if any), it’s too easy to forget the reason that people have weddings: they love each other, they’re happy and they want to share their joy with others. I was reminded of this when I ran across Jill and Kevin’s Wedding Dance on You Tube.

There have been over 32 million views of this video and there will probably be many more since Beliefnet chose Jill and Kevin and their dance as one of the Most Inspiring nominees of 2009. And to top it all off, Jill and Kevin have dedicated their website to collecting donations to fight domestic violence.

I applaud Jill and Kevin (their last names are never given) for sharing their joy with the world. May they be happy forever!
