Yesterday a Virginia couple, Kelly Respess and Paul Kercheval, tied the knot in Grand Army Plaza—but instead of hopping into a horse-drawn carriage afterwards, they decided to draw attention to the cruelty of the carriage industry. The message on the back of their 1936 Ford Phaeton (a vehicle similar to the "horseless carriages" being proposed as replacements) read, "Just Hitched—But Not to a Carriage."

Peta notes that the newlyweds also handed out informational leaflets to guests and passerby; the site also has more photos, including the My Little Pony-esque wedding cake toppers!
