Getting married, for the most part, entails a handful of traditions. Back in the day it was tradition for the groom to see his bride for the first time on their wedding day when she came walking down the aisle where she would meet him right at the altar.
These days, modern brides and grooms have come up with their own unique way of capturing the groom’s first look at his bride on the day of the wedding. Most of them sneak off with their photographer just to make sure that the groom’s first reactions are caught by the camera and turned into a keepsake the couple can keep for a really long time after.
Brianne Dennis, however, had something better- and funnier- in mind. When her groom, David Hoffman, turned around to finally take a look at his bride, he saw something he’d never expected to see on his wedding day.
Instead of his bride-to-be wearing a really classy and stylish wedding gown, he saw a bearded man wearing a white strapless gown with a veil attached. Imagine his laughter when he saw his very own best man in a wedding gown!
David shared in an interview:
“Right in that moment I was anxious. I was trying to calm my nerves because I was about to see my bride for the first time. I was expecting to see Brianne and I turned around to see Timmy in a wedding dress. He was pale and hairy and we love each other very much but not in that way. I was falling down laughing.”
It turned out that his bride-to-be decided on a few shenanigans on their wedding day. Initially, she was really against the idea, even after Timmy Horton, David’s best man, offered to do a few wedding jokes he’d seen online. A few days before the wedding, however, she gave in and changed her mind.
She said in the same interview:
“I really wanted a serious ceremony at first. I didn’t want any of their shenanigans on the day, but a few months down the road I changed my mind.”
The moment was truly hilarious. David couldn’t stop laughing while his best friend continued to play the part. They even got a really nice photo acting out as bride and groom!
After seeing the photos of the memorable yet funny event which was captured by their photographer, the bride didn’t feel any regret doing the prank. In fact, she was really happy that they did it as it was so hilarious. Their wedding photographer also happened to be a close friend of the couple.
