Not to feel like I fell out of the storyline of “27 Dresses,” but I love weddings. I love the open bar. I love the endless supply of cake. And I love the feeling of love all around me. Not only is it a great time to mentally decide that you will NOT being using the same color scheme as the bride, but you get to put away the games, the fights, and the “what ifs” and just accept the magic of two people becoming one.
But the best part of a wedding, however, is the bride’s entrance. In a total Katherine Heigl move. I’m, of course, talking about the groom’s reaction to watching his almost-wife walking down an aisle to him, and to their future. In one of the most sob-worthy videos of all time this groom loses it when he sees his bride. Brace yourselves, because it’s quite possibly the most pure, romantic thing you will ever see.
It’s fine, I just have something in my eye. And yes, by that I mean I’m crying like a literal infant. In an interview with the Huffington Post, the groom, Conner Courtney, explained why he reacted like that in the sweetest way.
I had to turn my back and breathe or I was going to lose it once the music started. I told Hannah’s brother [who was officiating the wedding] to tell me when she was there so I could turn around. The moment I saw her was like seeing my entire life right in front of me. I’m usually good with handling my emotions, but after seeing her and her smile, it was tears of pure happiness and a radiance of love. I wanted to express that to her, and that’s how it came out.
If you thought that was the most adorable thing in the world, just imagine how the bride felt. The lady of the hour, Hannah, went on to say that while she thought her groom might shed a few tears, she had no idea his reaction would be so powerful.
All I could do was smile the biggest smile and cry the happiest tears. The look on Conner’s face made my heart feel like it was going to burst because I felt so full of love. But when I look back at that day now, I really am not surprised by his reaction because he shows me that much love every day.
As you if you didn’t feel single enough already..
