Wedding Whoops {Link Up} & A Giveaway !

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

I am linking these stories up with Jenna's over at Recently Roached. Go over and check out the other brides' Wedding Whoops! too. 

Our wedding on July 16, 2011

Our wedding day went very smooth actually. The only thing is that a thunderstorm decided to blaze through at the beginning of the reception and lasted about 30 minutes. Our police escorts were on motorcycles  in front of our car and we were right behind them while lightning was striking the roads ahead of us. I was so nervous that one of the escorts would be struck by lightning, but they were thankfully okay.  We thought the rain would keep the guests from coming to the reception, but we were wrong. It was a packed house and even more people showed up to the reception. A few family members and friends face planted into some puddles in the parking lot, and thankfully they were okay too. Due to the torrential down pour, Joel and I were not able to get a picture in the Rolls Royce together, but I didn't even realize it till we were on the honeymoon.

Everyone kept telling us that rain means good luck on our wedding day, so we weren't a bit upset about it. It was actually a very cool moment to see how the party continued even though there was a thunderstorm outside.

Since there was no big "whoops" I decided to do the some funny moments with captions! Hope you enjoy!

I don't have a picture of it, but as soon as my Dad reached the altar, Joel extended his hand to take mine, and my Dad said "No, not yet." The funny part is, is that we stood there for a good 8-10 seconds waiting for the music to end so that my Dad could "hand me over" and Joel sat there thinking the whole time that he wasn't handing me over because my Dad wasn't ready. In reality, we just were waiting for the music to stop, so many got a kick out of this moment and the joke is that my Dad wasn't ready to hand me over yet. And the best part is.. After he gave Joel my hand, my Dad turned around and tripped over my dress as he found his way to the pew. I totally missed this, but hearing about it after was just hilarious.

Anyway, on to the pictures!

Whoops! I forgot my "dance" moves!

Whoops! The Groom has a new headdress!
Whoops- Aunt Mae is undressing my Groomsmen and wearing their vests!

And she successfully got the Groom's vest too!

Whoops! Someone gave the Groom a microphone!

And, the best for last! Someone gave the Groom handcuffs to pull from out of my dress! You can see by every one's faces that this was certainly one of the funniest/most shocking moments!
