My sister Samantha was recently married to her long time friend Will. I snapped some photos at the rehearsal dinner and the wedding, while the hired photographers did the heavy lifting. The wedding was very untraditional, family from both sides mingled during the ceremony, people were assigned to sit next to people they would not have sit next to normally, and the bride and groom were together all day. The feeling was like "Traditions are meant to be broken." I agree, tradition is a thing of the past, go on your own path.
