Woman marries building
In a last-ditch attempt to save its life, a romantic woman decides to tie the knot with a local building...
There's something oh so romantic in the Seattle air, isn't there? Just ask Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Or how about Babylonia Aivaz, who recently donned a puffy white dress and walked down the aisle to marry her one true love: a 107-year-old Seattle building. Yeah, we know what you're thinking - that sounds like one heck of an age gap.
The community rights activist called the event a 'gay wedding', acting upon her strong feelings for the cement block when it was slated to be demolished and turned into flats. 'I’m doing this to show the building how much I love it, how much I love community space and how much I love this neighborhood,' Aivaz said.
The wedding ceremony began with a good ol' sing-song, with 16 guests joining in to sing 'Lean on Me', before the nuptials commenced to the backing supplied by a ukulele. Daw, how romantic.
Strong-willed Aivaz has also hit back at incredulous on-lookers: 'Yes, I’m in love with a 107 year old building! Yes, ITS A GAY MARRIAGE!' Aivaz could not be contacted to confirm whether this means the building is female or she is, in fact, a building.
But despite the obvious passion behind the relationship, demolition men remain undeterred. The schedule for the building's demise remains. What are they, made of stone?
