5 Funny Things That Happened During & After Our Wedding Ceremony


On this upcoming Monday, the Hubby Coach and I will be celebrating our 2nd Wedding Anniversary!  I am super excited because I think I am more in love with him now than ever before.

We were married on June 9th, 2012 in the Great Lakes Garden in Niagara Falls State Park (Niagara Falls, NY.) I thought to commemorate the date; I would share a few funny things that happened on our special day.

Here are 5 funny things that happened during and after our wedding ceremony….

  1. Our brother-in-love who married us made me say my vows twice. I don’t know why, but he did!
  2. I actually forgot to put Oji’s ring on his finger and had to be prompted to.
  3. My veil got stuck to the cobblestones of the garden where our ceremony was held. I had to give it a slight tug as I was walking down the aisle.
  4. I had so much going on under my dress that I didn’t know I had lost one of my thigh highs while we were taking our photos. My girls ended up giving them to Oji on the down low.
  5. On the receiving line, I did say (into the camera) “I’se married now!” The famous line from the movie The Color Purple.
