A Walk Down the Aisle

A Walk Down the Aisle: Notes on a Modern Wedding is an exploration of the American wedding ritual told from the perspective of a bride who has no practical need for the ceremony. She and her fiancé have been living together for years; their finances are intermingled; their parents approve. At the turn of the 21st century in America, what’s to be gained from a wedding? And why do senseless traditions–some ancient, some fake-ancient–exert their pull even on those who consider themselves to be, if not counter-cultural, then at least culture-questioning?
