Sometimes You Just Have to Roll With the Punches

Something goes wrong at every wedding. Sometimes it’s something small, like an inopportune sneeze in the middle of the vows. Sometimes it’s something huge, like the caterer or the florist disappearing at the last minute. And sometimes it’s a photo op gone really, really wrong!

In the middle of this photoshoot, taken by Jeff Hayford and posted on, the bridal party had gone out on a small pier for a formal shot, when the pier collapsed.

Nobody was hurt, but that’s one unforgettable wedding album this couple has. Go check out the photos. They’re priceless. If nothing else, they’ll certainly put any wedding day disaster you’ve been fearing into perspective!

  1. I can’t say anything that bad happened to me! But it could have – there was a dock and we took pictures on it. However, there would have been some bad mojo there since the Beard helped rebuild the dock a few years prior!

    Hey Christa! Good to see you!

    Also, I’m glad you didn’t wind up in the drink in your wedding gown on accident. The good news is that this wedding party seemed to take the mishap in stride.

    Somehow, our first dance song went missing (we had my honorary brother organising the music, not a professional) A groomsman was able to download it on his iPhone and after a delay we were able to go ahead with our waltz. Then, in about the second verse, the groomsman received a text message – a booty call! We froze, realised what it was, and burst out laughing. That photo is one of the best of the whole day!

    Katie, that’s hilarious! Now that’s how to respond to a sudden mix up.

    There were more than a couple mishaps at my wedding. I remember coming to the realization that I could either be grumpy and ruin the fun for myself or I could “roll with the punches.” I highly recommend letting go and letting the humor of the situation take control!

  6. I love that the bride is holding an Old Milwaukee in the penultimate photo!

    Yeah, I kind of love that, too, Class Factotum.
