Dirty Dancing the Movie-Wedding Inspiration

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Patrick Swazye this week. I think I can speak for a lot of girls my age that when Dirty Dancing hit the movie screens, I fell head over heals for Johnny Castle, played by Swazye. I wanted to by Baby, played by Jennifer Grey and romp in the Catskill mountains all summer. I couldn't imagine anything more romantic then dancing on a log and practicing lifts in the lake. Swoon. So I started thinking of what a wedding between Johnny and Baby might be like. Not a wedding in the swanky dining room of the Catskill resort but a wedding in the workers quarters where all the action took place.

In the movie, Baby helps a friend carry watermelon to a party. This is where she discovers Johnny and the secret world of "dirty dancing". It's only appropriate that they would have a refreshing watermelon drink at their wedding while taking fun pictures with all of their fellow dancers. It doesn't hurt to dream. I won't even start with the movie Grease and my infatuation with John Travolta.
