The beginning of April marked the blast-off for our wedding season; we had 1-4 weddings every single weekend. I had a ball! Cake every weekend! Tears during every ceremony! Dancing every reception!
Without further ado, here are my Wedding Season Awards for Spring 2010:
Most Shameful Moment
A Momzilla walked in while I was decorating a table. She didn't see me, so I crawled under the table and hid. And my sister had to deal with her.
Everlasting shame. I have no excuse.
When a Momzilla told us, "I've been so mean to you and you made everything perfect for my daughter's wedding day. Not one thing went wrong."
I then had an unchristian moment and wanted to throw out my ugly finger.
But I didn't. I smiled and replied, "Every Mom gets stressed."
Most Terrifying Moment
When I got a panicked call from my bride telling me she was going into emergency surgery 2 days before her wedding.
With some strong meds and a little champagne, she was feeling great on her wedding day.
Most Ridiculous Request
I got a panicked call at midnight from a groom that requested I forge a permit for something he forgot. He even went a step further and said, "I know you can do this! I have faith in you!"
Never, for one minute, think your faith will inspire any criminal activity on my part.
During one particular wedding, we were being treated horribly by the clients and guests. I was frazzled beyond belief. So I did the professional thing and spazzed out on my sister. "I am not respected!" "No one loves me!" "Why did we start this business?!" "What is my purpose in life?!"
I then apologized. Then ate cake. And we hugged it out.
I overheard the father-of-the bride, who recently had a stroke, tell someone that walking his daughter down the aisle was what got him through the painful months of therapy. I've never seen such a proud Daddy as he walked his daughter down the aisle.
Oh, those daddies and their daughters get me every time!
The end. I'm going to the spa. I might not come back.
