As our guests settled into their seats, we lined up outside with our wedding party. We’re big alternative music fans, so we chose to enter to “Little Secrets” by Passion Pit, one of our favorite bands.

The music started, and our DJ began to announce our wedding party. First, my brother J entered and Tebowed.
Next up was my brother C. There’s no photographic evidence of it, but he did the Heisman. Then my brother A pulled a Discount Double-Check.
P was too cool to dance.
C did a little C-walk while flashing the crowd with a strobe light on his iPhone.
L danced her way in…
…as did my sister M.
Mr. T’s brother B did the Usain Bolt.
Finally, it was our turn. We waved…
…did a fancy dip…
…and walked toward our seats hand-in-hand.
