Most brides dream of making long-lasting wedding memories.
At the time of this post, Jill and Kevin's video of their less-than-traditional march down the aisle generated over 32 million YouTube hits. While they ran into some copyright infringement over the use of Chris Brown's bubble gum pop tune, Forever, the couple focused on the bright side and used the publicity to solicit donations to their favorite charity.
According to their website...
Jill and Kevin met when Kevin's childhood friend, Jeff, married Jill's college friend, Ann, in 2005. They were both in the wedding party. Jill could not resist Kevin’s wit and charm. Kevin could not resist Jill's intellect, nor her remarkable dance moves.
We have been through a lot in life, but have come through each experience stronger and more in love with each other. Our experience since we posted the video has been incredible. We would never have expected this response to our wedding entrance in a million years.----------
We hope to direct this positivity to a good cause. Due to the circumstances surrounding the song in our wedding video, we have chosen the Sheila Wellstone Institute.
Sheila Wellstone was an advocate, organizer, and national champion in the effort to end domestic violence in our communities.
We are so grateful for all the love, kind words, and joy that have been shared with us from around the world. It has moved us deeply and filled our hearts.
Never stop dancing.
With so much love,
Jill and Kevin
And the evidence.
"A Little Crazy" Wedding Entrance
Unless you're making an "insanely awesome" audition tape for a bridal reality television series, the old-fashioned wedding entrance may be a better choice.
"Traditional" Wedding Entrance
Winner: Traditional. At least you'll still have your pride if the reality tv gig falls through.
