"My mom dancing down the isle (sic) doin what she wants having fun and being her," is how Kendra Garber of Pekin, Illinois, described this YouTube video, which was shot on her mother's wedding day.
Garber somehow managed to leave out the part where the song her mom's dancing to is her own cover of a Buckcherry song inspired by Paris Hilton's sex tape.
Which is just as well, since no mere words could ever do this footage justice.
After YouTube commenters had their familiar way with the video, referring to the bride as "redneck," "white trash," and "EVERYTHING that is wrong with America," the newlywed herself popped in to offer this persuasive counterpoint:
who made the rule on how my wedding should be and just so you know it was my wedding at my house and they were my guests if and when you ever find anyone to marry your narrow minded self you can have your wedding at your location with your guests in your way and guess what I will respect your choice because I live in the USA and that is what we do here. And thank you to all my friends and family (including my son) who fight or have fought for my freedom to do this
Wow I can promise I am not pregnant and I will bet my IQ is higher then yours and guess what I am employed with a great job and in my job I care for all different people with no judgment. WE had a wedding for us the craziness that is in our heads and all our friends and family get it. Have been told it was greatest wedding people have been too. You all just upset that you don’t have creativity or the balls to live your life freely like we do. Thank GOD I live in the USA
See everyone loved it I have total self respect and proud of everything I do with no regrets and thank GOD I can defend this. All those people are my family they grew up with me and raised me. I stand by this and so does my husband friends and family. All I wish is that I can find a wider shot so you all can see all the guests dancing and rocking out like we always do. I am a 43 year old grandma who rocks out and enjoys life. Proud of me and my family so all that are out there ROCK ON
According to a family friend, despite what the video suggests, "most of the guests" were aware of the bride's intentions to forego Wagner in favor of "Crazy Bitch," and "were dancing with her."
And after the ceremony, the couple rode off to the reception flanked by a "parade of Harleys...and black sunglasses."
To which YouTube responded: "What was that about homosexuals destroying the institution of marriage again?"
