Bride & Groom Reenact Dirty Dancing Finale — & Kill It

Who can forget that iconic scene in Dirty Dancing when Johnny Castle lifts Frances "Baby" Houseman in the air? Ohh, those muscular arms of steel.... While you may have had the "time of your life" just watching it, one couple took their passion for the film quite a bit further.
Terra and Drake Otto decided to reenact the last scene as a part of their wedding reception entertainment — including Johnny's empowering speech before he whisks Baby away on the dance floor. The couple documented the entire experience, starting with rehearsals in the studio (complete with a Penny Johnson-like instructor) and culminating with a dynamic performance at their reception.
While we were beyond impressed that the Ottos did not miss one head shake, pelvic thrust, or spin, we were blown away when Drake Otto lifted his wife in the air, looking as effortless as Swayze and Grey did back in the day. Looks like nobody puts Baby — or a bride — in the corner. Check out the video below for some major inspiration — even if you're not getting hitched. (Buzzfeed)
