Wedding entrance a hit

The footage of a bride and groom dancing down the aisle of Christ Lutheran Church, St. Paul, Minn., in June was among the most viewed videos on YouTube in 2009 (September 2009, "Wedding procession on YouTube").

Jill Peterson and Kevin Heinz became instant celebrities after posting footage of their wedding party's march down the aisle to Chris Brown's "Forever."

The church's office was swamped with calls and e-mails. Matthew Maas, pastoral intern, told The Lutheran: "People are responding because the spiritual and physical are compatible. Watching the video pulls both of these together."

This was the first time YouTube ranked its most-watched videos.
