As my season gets busier, I’ve neglected putting personal stories in the blogs, but my favorite “mistake” ever happened at this wedding and you all deserve to hear about it. As we were working on details, I noticed there were socks in there with Jeff’s face on them. Alison said there was a gift in there for Jeff, so I assumed this was part of it and she was just trying to surprise him with something hilarious. So, when Jeff was opening his gift, we also gifted him with the socks, he thought it was funny, and put them on. Fast forward 30 minutes when Alison was getting ready, she asked where her socks were…. Umm, Jeff is currently wearing them. I apologized profusely thinking it was a gag groom gift since I have definitely had a bride surprise her groom with something similar before and she was like, “no, this is even better.” So, moral to the story, Jeff spent all day wearing socks with his face on them that were actually meant for Alison.

Also worth noting, someone called the cops on a horse because it was lying down and thought it might be dead. We really don’t know how this story ended (no horses were harmed at this wedding), but we joked all night that the horse got arrested.
