No cold feet as St. Paul wedding party dances its way to the altar

At first, it looks like any other wedding for Jill and Kevin Heinz as the church doors close in St. Paul to begin the ceremony.

Then, the music begins and suddenly the two ushers toss all of the leftover programs in the air, starting what turns out to be a five-minute choreographed dance number filled with spins, shuffles, and even a handstand. All this was topped off with a nicely executed somersault by the groom.

The guests start clapping along to the Chris Brown song “Forever” as members of the wedding party dance their way to the altar.

(What you didn’t see though, is the dancing at the reception, which consisted solely of somber, double-file marching to Felix Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March.”)

    Great way to end the article. Apparently the Bride/Groom and Wedding Party were on the Today show re-enacting the dance.
