American Olympic figure skater Sasha Cohen got married this weekend — and the ceremony included traditional hora dancing set to less-than-traditional music.

The 2006 Olympic silver medalist wed hedge fund manager Tom May on Saturday in Cape Cod. In a video shared to Instagram by Cohen’s sister, Natasha, partygoers can be seen raising the couple on chairs into the air as is traditionally done at Jewish weddings.

But the couple made an unusual song choice, opting for “Locked Out of Heaven” by pop singer Bruno Mars, rather than a klezmer tune.

Cohen’s sister also shared a photo of the 31-year-old figure skater and her mother, Galina, a Jewish immigrant from Ukraine.
