Wedding gets blessing from Occupy Portland

A wedding party gets blessing from Occupy Portland during the march to celebrate Occupy Portland's 1-year anniversary
You never know what will happen when you take to the streets with Occupy! During the march to celebrate Occupy Portland's 1-year anniversary on Oct. 6, we passed by a wedding party posing for photos in front of the Benson Hotel in downtown Portland. The bride and groom cheered and waved as Occupy and anti-war activists marched by. To the surprise of many, the bride and groom spontaneously walked towards the street to join Occupy activists. They smiled and then kissed as Occupy activists cheered on. This was a wedding they will never forget, with the blessings of Occupy Portland. Welcome to the paradigm shift!
