A modified version of the original installation/event. In the installation are displayed the artifacts of a wedding. The videotape is the performance of a series of rituals and readings as several bridesmaids prepare the bride (Lewis) for a wedding without a bridegroom: a marriage to television. A live action camera incorporates the presence of gallery viewers as "guests to the wedding".
