Community Wedding Held In Rio's Jacarezinho Favela

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - JANUARY 17: Young family members wait to enter a communal marriage ceremony in the Jacarezinho pacified community, or shantytown, on January 17, 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 'favela' was previously controlled by drug traffickers and is now occupied by the city's Police Pacification Unit (UPP). The UPP hosted the communal wedding for 18 couples to mark the first anniversary of the UPP occupation of the community. In Brazil, weddings are costly and couples sometimes join communal weddings to save costs. The UPP are patrolling some of Rio's favelas amid the city's efforts to improve security ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
