These Two Brides Did a Tandem 253-Pound Barbell Deadlift to Celebrate Their Wedding People celebrate wedding
ceremonies in many ways. Some light a candle together, others
pour sand in a jar, some even plant trees. Zeena Hernandez and Lisa Yang
wanted to do something unique
at their October wedding in Brooklyn. After their vows, the brides deadlifted
a 253-pound barbell together. And yes, they did so while wearing their gorgeous wedding dresses and veils. "It was meant to not only be
a symbol of unity but also a
statement," Hernandez told Insider. "Individually we are strong, capable women—but together, we are stronger."
