Some newlywed couples go to their weddings draped in gold jewelry, others draped in golden pythons.
On Friday, Jilin hosted an unusual sort of wedding ceremony. When it came time for the bride and groom to exchange gifts on stage, they reach not for knee-high stacks of cash, but for two giant serpents, wrapping the snakes around their partners body, before embracing uncomfortably in what looks to be the start of a very unique marriage.
According to NetEase, the couple are volunteers at a local animal protection center. In retrospect, maybe exchanging lovebirds would have been more appropriate?
