In Iconic Photo, Entire Bridal Party Takes A Knee

It’s a photo shoot.

Colin Kaepernick shook up sports and the nation when he decided to take a knee during the national anthem at a pre-season NFL game last year.

And while many pro-athletes have joined Kaepernick in protesting the injustice in America and police brutality regarding people of color, a wedding party decided to dedicate one of the momentous photos from the occasion.

“May be one of my favorite bridal party photos… #jukeboxlovesong2017 #takeaknee,” photographer Carolina Rivera captioned a photo of the wedding party.

The wedding took place on September 30. And according to this announcement posted to Instagram, John and Arielle became man and wife.

Now it appears they will always now be a part of history given their brave photo choice.
