Newlyweds Isaiah and Taylor Green-Jones celebrated their wedding in Portland. Ore., this summer, but thanks to a video that’s now gone viral of a flash mob they organized for their reception, the internet is also celebrating with them.
Prior to their wedding, Taylor Green-Jones, 35, a cardio dance instructor, worked with a choreographer on developing a routine that the grooms and several of their guests began rehearsing about a month out from the wedding.
In the joyful video that’s become a massive hit on social media, the grooms and their guests are crushing dance moves to Beyoncé’s “Before I Let Go” and Lil Nas X’s mega-hit “Old Town Road,” a song that is particularly impactful to the husbands “because it is sung by an openly gay Black male artist,” they told Good Morning America.
"Everyone was surprised at the wedding. No one knew, so there was a lot of cheering, a lot of yelling. It was great," Isaiah Green-Jones, 29, told GMA.
"Online, there was a lot of support. I think people felt inspired ... because this video showed a little piece of light in the midst of a lot of negative energy out there," he added.
The men say they hope the video depicts "the importance of supporting folks and celebrating love, no matter what that looks like."
