Fighting Corporate Greed and Finding Love: An Occupy Wall Street Wedding

If the Occupy Wall Street protests don't eventually force stricter banking regulations or greater wealth equality, the movement can at least take responsibility for one love connection. Emery Abdel-Latif, 24, and Micha Balon, 19, met at Zuccotti Park in September and tied the knot today in a ceremony officiated by an NYU chaplain. Thanks to MSNBC's Meg Robertson, you can listen to part of the wedding here. Congratulations, Emery and Micha, you now have a pretty cool story to tell when people ask where you first met.

In honor of your special day, here's something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue:

Something old:
Graham Nash and David Crosby.

Something new:

Something borrowed:
Zuccotti Park.

Something blue:
The constant police presence.

They've known each other for just two months, she's only 19, and in the Daily News article about them, he says this is the first time he's been in love. These do not bode well for their future.
