Forever Hold Your Peace, Please
"I had an uncle of a groom stand up after the couple was pronounced and start yelling and waving his finger, ‘How could you marry this woman? Your mother is in heaven crying!’
The bride went into hysterics, the groomsmen were ready to beat him down and I had tell the groom's father (the brother of the badly behaved uncle) that he was not allowed near my couple and he would have to leave. It took me about an hour and half to calm the bride down so she could enjoy the rest of her wedding. The happy part of the story is that while the couple was hiding away in my office, the very handsome groom, dressed in all the regalia of a US Navy officer, knelt at his sobbing bride's feet, held her hands and said, ‘Baby, don't worry. We are married now and there is nothing they can do about it.’ ” - Anne B.
