Photos: Seattle Woman Marries a Warehouse

This is a story of doomed love.  On Sunday, Seattle woman Babylonia Aivaz wed a warehouse in the Capitol Hill neighborhood as a show of anti-gentrification.  Aivaz is an Occupy Seattle protester who fell in love with the community space which is now being bulldozed to make way for a new apartment complex.  The eclectic ceremony was held outdoors in the rain, as the warehouse was fenced off.  Children blew bubbles while a “minister” led the exchange of vows and the crowd began singing “Lean on Me.”  See photos of the event below with more on Flickr and full coverage on Capitol Hill Seattle.
