So the story goes that she was coordinating a ceremony and something inadvertently got switched up and the parents sat down on opposite sides from their bride/groom child. Traditionally, Brides stand on the left with the Groom on the right. Typically, each person's parents will then sit directly behind them as well. In this case, the parents mixed things up and sat on the wrong sides of the aisle.
After this "oops!" moment, she realized how amazing this actually is, and I agree!

It would work for pictures as well! The photographer would be able to get a shot of your parents watching you while you say your vows. You're smiling, and they'd be in the picture, witnessing it.
I just love re-inventing traditions! Would you mix things up at your wedding like this?
