RADCLIFF, KY—Baptist couple Ken and Elizabeth Baker had a beautiful wedding ceremony over the weekend, complete with the cutting of the cake, moving speeches and toasts, and the couple's first awkward sway on the dance floor.
As a romantic song began to play, the couple timidly approached one another on the dance floor and proceeded to awkwardly sway through the song as emotional friends and family members looked on.
The newly married Bakers stood two feet apart and extended their arms to one another, swaying out of time with the music as they gazed lovingly into one another's eyes, "leaving plenty of room for Jesus" throughout the song.
"It was a beautiful scene," the new Mrs. Baker's mom said later. "The way they tilted back and forth with no discernible sense of rhythm, just like junior highers—it brought me back to my own passionate first sway on my wedding day."
"Their total lack of ability to dance just showed their purity," said their pastor. "In a culture when everybody dances with everybody, it's refreshing to see these traditionalists save their first sway for their wedding day."
The wedding wasn't all sunshine and roses, however—the family's estranged Presbyterian uncle showed up and began causing a scene when he realized the champagne was just Martinelli's sparkling cider.
