I've Found The Template For My Ninth Wedding

I'm not sure I've ever done a 180 on a video like this in my life. I went from arms-crossed-this-is-stupid mode to smiling-not-too-bad mode. As someone always told me, "Live a little, boy." (Thanks, emailer)

Baptist wedding?

It's always good when a marriage starts off with this kind of exuberant joy. It'll make you grin.

At first I didn't want to take 5 minutes to watch this - but am I glad I did.

It was 5 minutes well-spent. I'll probaly save it for when I need a pick-me-up.

Fun, fun.

good for them. hope it lasts.

Mike said...

Awsome. I want them to choreograph my funeral.

Great find. Sent this to my friends that are getting married next month. Would this be proper for a Catholic wedding?

Cleatus said...

I can't wait to see the reception/dance video. I'm sure the wedding party had to dragged out.

That's fantastic.

I don't know that many folks with that much rhythm. Most of my friends have trouble clapping and tapping in tune

If my wedding was more like that, I wouldn't have recorded over the video.

Those darned Unitarians!

What was that term you used a couple of posts earlier -
"the white crowd"?

At about the 2:30 mark, I started wondering "How many people are in this wedding party!?" until I realized they were recycling.

If they ever get divorced, they (especially the groom) will look back at this and think "What the hell was I thinking?"

I like'd all the slo-mo dancing near the end. That looked pretty cool.

1:21 - you are a ray of sunshine. Your wife/husband/dog/pet rodent must wait for you at the door with exuberance for the joy you bring.

I couldn't help but get out of my chair and start dancing too. Then it hit me. I must make a career change and become a divorce lawyer so I can dance all the way to the bank.

i can't help but wonder what the old white haired couple on the front right were thinking (more then likely the grandparents.
i am sure they were blaming the new in-laws for such non-sense.

They had to be Methodists. Baptists cannot dance like that!

I hope all who were involved with the production of this, all who thought this "cool", and all who took precious time away from their families or jobs to watch this all die a slow......painfull......death.

And Berry......you should have to pay to clean the vomit out of my keyboard.

This proves that there is no way to make a wedding bearable.

I heard the bride ran off three months later with a colored boy.

Totally precious! I agree with Mike...
I need them to plan my funeral!

Why? Because I'm not blubbering like the rest of you?
It was an amusing video, I'll grant you that, but it hasn't changed my life
It's called a sense of humor, and in my case I can find humor in just about anything. Plus, I didn't say anything that would be considered mean or hateful.
"How dare you poke fun at us while we all get jiggy in church during a solemn religious rite!"

I could never associate myself with such forms of gaydom.

The "man" saying I DO has to put his foot down in this situation. If the bride requires this much attention when they aren't even married.......what will the next three years be like for him?

That's how long I give them.....three years.

I'm with 3:17 on this.


There's just nothing right about it

I LOVED it! Whitebreads can get their groove on, after all!

Props to BeefyBoy for the handstand in the aisle.

And would luv to hire Bambi & Ashley (the first two bridesmaids) to precede me everywhere I go. Barry, they would get a major reaction leading you into the courtroom for every big case.

Great, great, great!

There is a great disturbance in the Force...I agree with Wordkyle.

Looks like fun to me!

I initially thought the same......

There is a great disturbance in the Force...I agree with Wordkyle.

Then I realized it was just a delayed reaction to the eclipse, 5:28 PM.

I liked the one where they were doing "Thriller" much better, or am I just dreaming that really happened? I also had a dream where Michael Jackson died.....

I'll bet they could have sold tickets to the reception.That took a lot of effort.DAGO

Man, it is a wedding celebrate it up. 2 Grown folks doing what at the time, they have dreamed of being the best thing in their lives.

Wonderful song choice.

I like the Tom Arnold weddings too, usually the people on show or on their third wedding or so, and they just say ahh to heck with it, lets shoot something.

Good times.

The father apparently decided not to give his daughter away...or did I miss something.

WHAT IS THAT! A BUNCH OF FAT PEOPLE THAT CANT DANCE.... WIGERS!!!

You may call me Your Majesty. In fact, I insist. said...

I thought it was wonderful! A wedding IS a celebration, after all. I'm passing it on.

Incredibly awesome! Noticed the preacher was a female, too, so probably NOT baptist! Loved it!

What an awesome way to celebrate.

Anyone think this gang has ever dropped a hit of X ?

Almost made me want to be married. But it passed :)

The world reads your blog BG, this video was featured on local and national news and now it's on yahoo's front page.

Uh oh - this will be shown in every Southern Baptist church in America on the big sanctuary screens.

Sin sin sin.

Recreation of the last scene of "Hitch".

Not bad.

Thank you Barry, (tears rolling down my face). I needed that! My alienated 18 year old daughter got married yesterday and didn't invite me. If feels good to see how a real family clebrates marriage.
