Well, the bride-to-be was hired to be a lucky lady for a nice groom to be at a bachelor party.
Put two and two together, and that is how one wedding was canceled, and I had a free Saturday night for the first time in months. And no, neither party in question knew anything about what the either was doing and was pure coincidence that she got the job to cheat on her ex-to-be."

"I worked a wedding as a planner's assistant when I was about 18. I did whatever I was asked, but for the most part, it was final touches on setup, organizing the bridal party, cueing music and stuff.
Anyway, one wedding starts off normal enough, it's enormous and being held in a university chapel, with a reception to follow outdoors next to a historic building on campus. The bride and groom each have 14 people in their bridal parties so already wrangling everyone is an issue. The day before the wedding we show up for rehearsal and set up what we can. It's a gorgeous June day; everything is fine, we manage to get everyone up and down the aisle in order, all good.
The day of the wedding, however - horrifying thunderstorms. Before the wedding even starts the tent that had been set up the day before flooded. The whole place turned into a mudslide. The ceremony is gorgeous; then everyone makes their way in torrential rain to the mud-filled tent, where the water and mud are easily ankle deep everywhere, sinking to calf deep depending upon where you step. The bride's dress is ruined, everyone is damp and covered with mud, the bride's mom looks like the matchmaker from Mulan. SOMEHOW, the band is still there and willing to play, and the only dry place is the dance floor, so everyone is there, and it's 900 degrees to go along with the torrential rain. The bride changes dresses and asserts that her cowboy boots are 'made for this' so the wedding goes on, everyone gets hammered, they all seem to somehow be having a good time.
Meanwhile, the rain is steadily picking up, an epic storm is brewing, and the planner that I worked for was like, 'Okay time to peace out.' We pile into her car. Everything is wet and terrible, and I'm just thinking about getting home and showering and never seeing those lunatics without a rain contingency again. Less than a mile from the wedding site, three separate funnel clouds form, touching the ground to become three (admittedly not massive, but still terrifying) tornados.
That pretty much ended any and all festivities.
Luckily, I'm pretty sure the bride and groom were just happy to be married to each other but man, did the weather have it out for them."

"I was a banquet manager at a country club almost 20 years ago. The bride and groom have cut the cake and are on the dance floor for their first dance when the bride's grandfather falls dead out of his chair. CPR and paramedics to follow but no use. THE DJ TO THE RESCUE! He takes the mic, shows us what the difference is between a DJ and an MC. While paramedics are loading granddad on the gurney, the DJ gathers the wedding party and leads them in a group prayer.
Also, my bartender was freaking out because he thought he might have over-served the grandad."

"A couple of years ago, I was shooting a small wedding of maybe 40 people or so. Let's call the groom Jeff.
So, I had photographed Jeff and his family before. I did a family photo session for them maybe six months earlier and knew he was an out there person who didn't put any effort into planning events and just waited until the last minute to do things.
My interactions were with Jeff exclusively in the past, so it didn't surprise me when he called me to shoot his wedding two months before the date. What did surprise me was how different his fiance, let's call her Mary, looked when we sat down to go over details of the wedding. She didn't look anything like I remembered. With good reason. It was a different woman. The woman I photographed during his family photos? Let's call her Nicole (It's relevant at the end of the story).
No big deal. Stuff happens. Roll with the punches right?
Well, it turns out, this wedding came about as haphazardly as you would expect and I'm not exaggerating when I say it had four of the most cringe-worthy wedding moments I've ever seen.
