  • 1. The Not-So-Best Man

    From Redditor u/__groundhogday__:

    The best man scr*wed the groom's mother between the meal and the dancing. The groom finds out and punches the best man, breaking his hand. The best man drives away and gets stopped by the police for drunk driving.

    Being a wedding photographer is awesome.

  • 2. The Dumpster Fire Wedding (Literally)

    From Redditor u/SnooHobbies7109:

    I was actually the bartender but it was a hoot. 1st, wedding was outside and it stormed violently. Groom was hammered pre wedding. Hit on all the bartenders. Then the DJ got hammered, made lewd comments to women in the microphone. Then basically everyone was hammered, knocked over the wedding cake which also happened to be a table with many candles, so the place caught on fire. Good times. Often wonder how that marriage worked out.

  • 3. The Hooters Wedding

    From Redditor u/Svetlana_of_Athens:

    A wedding on the beach behind Hooters. The officiant stood next to a trash bin. As if it was planned, the trash collector pulled up during the vows. Did he wait to change the bag? Absolutely not. Children at the wedding swarmed the couple like the flies around the trash can just after the kiss, stepping all over her dress. She bent over to adjust her sandal and a pack of Marlboro reds fell out of the bust along with her right br**st.

    It felt like we were rubber necking instead witnessing a marriage.

  • 4. The Shotgun Wedding (Literally)

    From Redditor u/permafacepalm:

    They met and married within months. He was 40's, she was upper 20;s or low 30's. I was shocked she was getting married, shocked this was the guy, and shocked that I was invited. Felt like I had to go. He had like 3 pre-teens that did whatever they wanted and lived in the backwoods. Wedding was at his cabin/property, potluck style. Wedding was just them standing in the yard. No seating, no grouping of friends or families or sides of an aisle, just hang out and watch them do their thing. No photographer. When they kissed, everyone pulled out guns and shot them off. I hadn't noticed the guns or seen that anyone was carrying, so it was a shock. Then the "happy couple" rode off on an ATV into the woods for a victory lap. They came back and we all ate swamp people food and everyone was sloshed. I left early with a friend and on the drive home we were like "So... what the f*ck was that?" They obviously divorced shortly after.

  • 5. The French Exit

    From Redditor u/Dusty_Old_Bones:

    I was at one a few years ago where an American gal was marrying her French fiancé. The guy’s mom gave a toast, in French of course, which detailed how disappointed she was and how this event marked her ‘losing’ her son forever. The bride wasn’t quite fluent enough to pick up every detail, but she got the gist just fine.

    Later French Mom told her son he was getting too fat and slapped the beer out of his hand, where it splattered all over both of them, and she ran off crying and locked herself in her hotel room. The maid of honor took it upon herself to spend the rest of the evening trying to console French Mom and get her to come back to the reception, which she never did.

    When we saw her at breakfast the next morning French Mom was flitting about, seemingly happy and like nothing had happened the night before.

  • 6. The Groom Chose The Shooting Range Over The Wedding

    From Redditor u/Catsandsnacks22:

    I once worked a wedding where come time for the first dance no one could find the groom. Turns out, he went to the resort’s shooting barn to shoot clay pigeons. Upon learning this news, the bride reacted by cursing up a storm on the dance floor.
