Marriage can be an adjustment for some people.
(submitted by Katie)
You gotta keep the groomsmen and best man in line.
Katie, Thanks for sharing this beautifully awkward wedding photo with us!

I don’t think that’s the father. I think it’s a prematurely gray and very handsome groom. If I were the bride, I would have kept this and used it for blackmail for years to come! but I think it would not be in the wedding album.
Glad everyone appreciated this photo. I’m the bride and I submitted it. The guy in the background is my brother, a groomsman and it was the first time my father saw me so a very special moment. Not only did my photographer not notice it, me and my family did not notice it when we were going through the proofs and it made it into my wedding album!!!!! Awkward!
This has to be the best “father, Daughter” picture! Congrats! And I hope you frame this and put it on the mantel. That way it will always be a great memory!!
I bet your brother is a little embarrased?
Thank you for the back story. I love that it is in your wedding album!
You look gorgeous! LOL, your brother made my day (and you have a good looking family too)!
I didn’t notice at first either. that’s an awesome photo. haha
Looks the the ring bearer is handling the family jewels also…
Enough with the demands for cropping! Lighten up! I’m sure the couple got hundreds of lovely pictures to choose from. This shot is soooo funny- if I were the bride, I would have it framed.
oh my! i never noticed until i started reading the comments!
You better check yourself before you wreck yourself
This picture looks staged. Either the crotch grabber did this on purpose or it was photoshopped in. By the looks of the picture I’m guessing it’s the latter. There’s no way the photographer didn’t notice that when editing it….or when taking the picture.
This is how you ruin the shot on purpose, when your dad marries your former girlfriend.
Maybe the father is whispering “Did you see what the best man is doing over there?” and she’s laughing?
Oh PDiddy!! Hahahhaha.
Reminds me of my brother in law. Always fun at family gatherings!
OK, on to the reception. After missing that practice last night I don’t feel ready for that Michael Jackson dance with all the groomsmen.
The lady’s married into a family of billiard players, it seems.
a lot of the comments seriously show just how much some folks think they know about professional photography. this photo looks SOOC to me (bw and fake vignetting and all), and i’m also willing to bet the photo came from the photographer and not the bride. of course, if i were the bride, i would have kept it, but then i was fortunate enough to be born with a sense of humor. =]
What wedding photographer shoots in those settings (b/w and vignette)?? Um, hopefully none, which shows what you know.
For everyone else who wants this cropped, the photographer clearly knew what the heck was going on in this one during post-production. He/she didn’t crop it because it is freaking hilarious! (Although I bet a cropped version was included too…)
since the groom just lost his he was making sure it wasn’t contagious
Holy Cow!! It’s called cropping!!! …..from what I can see the photographer “burned” the edges of the photo, which is what I often do to portraits when they are cropped and ready. So I guess in his opinion, there was nothing amiss in the background 🙂
LOL of all the things to capture on film
Now that is too funny….
“I hid the ring somewhere….”
At least the father kept his hands “in” his pants!!!
It would been a beautiful picture, but he had an itch that couldn’t wait…just crop him out!
At first I thought “What a beautiful photo, what’s awkward about it?” and then my eyes moved over to the groom…xD
Lol…me too. So awkward; the couple must’ve cropped it.
Okay…the photographer actually took the time to edit this photo with nice black and white conversion and vingetting and did NOT notice THAT!!! COME ON!!! One word..CROP!!!!!
I wonder why the photographer included that picture. Was it posed? Definitely awkward! 🙂
the crotch grabber is pretty hot!!
yeah I agree 😀
That’s why he’s having a re-shuffle; to let the air circulate…
I wonder if the guy on the left entered the picture just to ruin it.
Omg lol… Bad timing to be adjusting the “boys”
“I told the tailor I dress left!”
When you gotta scratch….
LOL how awful! needs a good cropping!
If the photographer cropped it, then it wouldn’t be awkward!
The Photo that is….not the “grabber”, I presume you mean?
This has got to be one of the best photos ever posted here! A lovely image of a bride and her father (?) except for….
Notice the ‘grabber’ isnt wearing a wedding ring? I think the bride is being kissed by her groom.
Yeah, I got your bridal party right here.
🙂 My fiance would totally say that… and if this were a photo of a moment at our wedding, he’d post it for the whole world to see as well.
“FRANKS AND BEANS!! FRANKS AND BEANS!!”
Make sure you have everything packed before you leave for the honeymoon.
Which one’s the groom?
For a second what I had read was “Which one’s the groin?” 😀
That made me laugh out loud!
Sometimes you just have to do it, no matter what.
I am the father of the bride and the father of the “grabber”. Believe me, it’s a habit!
This brings up the question of nature verses nurture. Exactly how far did the apple fall from the tree?
The alternate ending of ‘The Graduate’.
On second thought, the Divinyls’ “I touch Myself” was actually the perfect selection for first dance.
Stop playing with the Goodfellas, junior.
There’s awkward and there’s just plain ruined. I’m sorry for the happy couple and hope they can crop the photo.
I think that this is probably not their only photo
Why would the photographer even edit this shot???
For laughs. If I managed to capture such a moment in time, I’d want to preserve it. Wouldn’t try to make the happy couple pay for it, but I’d definitely want to frame that baby.
Ahahaha …I love this one.
Not quite a heart grabbing moment…
apparently it’s a subconscious thing.
At least it is in black and white. That makes anything look classy. Right?
