I know I should probably be shocked and wringing my hanky into knots over this. It's clearly not what most of us would have in mind as the proper way for beginning the celebration of a sacrament. (N.B., it wasn't a Catholic wedding.)
But: I loved it anyway. I couldn't stop grinning. Married life is a dance, and this just fits. Beautifully. Bless 'em. And bless 'em, especially, for having such great friends to dance with them.
Once you've had a chance to take a look at this, I'd be interested in your response to a few questions:
1) What did you like and not like about this entrance procession?
2) What does a "standard" entrance procession accomplish at a wedding? What did this procession accomplish? In other words: how does a procession (and its style) function best in the liturgy?
3) Do you wish you'd been invited to this wedding or are you glad you weren't? And why?
4) What's the best, what's the worst wedding procession you've been in or experienced?
5) Other comments?
Update: A friend with far more sophistication in contemporary music writes, "The heavily Autotuned recording artist is Chris Brown. The track is from the 2008 repackaged album called "Exclusive: the Forever Edition." (It did not appear on the original "Exclusive" album when it came out in 2007.) "
