Usually used a PR stunt or performance opportunity for dance troops, flash mobs have apparently now been adopted by the wedding community. Last week at the Prudential Center in Boston, Jon and Caroline Kleiman, accompanied by 60 guests, a choir, and anyone shopping at the mall that day, tied the knot in a public flash mob ceremony. What started out as some spirited singing of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” turned into a choreographed dance, and then with the unfurling of a white carpet aisle, suddenly unassuming shoppers were part of a wedding!
This brings whole new meaning to a cost-effective wedding—just pick a mall, public building, or street and voila!, you’ve got yourself a free wedding venue! What do you think about this nontraditional knot tying? And were any of you fellow Bostonians out there lucky enough to be shopping around the Pru for this flash mob?
