You may now smoosh the bride.

that’s right Jake!!! all the money in the world won’t buy true love! you both seem to be truly happy, and that is what matters. best of luck to you in the future!
…and then it got reeeeaaal quiet around here…
To all you naysayers: Plaid shirts, Jeans, Beards and lakes are better than you. Good luck spending 10’s of thousands of dollars on a traditional wedding with tuxes and lame stuff like candelabras, string quartets, ice sculptures, Huge diamond rings, Doves and anything else you wouldn’t have as a part of your life. All that money on ONE day!? How do you sleep at night? We had BBQ, Blues Music, Doughnut cakes, Bonfires, Bare feet, Stratocasters, Gibsons, Sweet Tea and the best time i have ever had or anyone else will ever have in this century with out breaking the bank. I did not get the “Dress up and Shave” memo because that’s not us. You shave. You dress up. We’ll be at home getting our feet dirty in the garden, sippin’ on some sweet tea, listening to Albert King, Enjoying a life not filled with materialism and greed, but a life full of community and love for each other and for our beautiful creation.
i sure hope there are Stratocasters and sweet tea at my wedding. 🙂
Hey, it’s bad enough she has to bear his children … now he wants to kiss her??
“Dear. I love you. And we ARE married…but I don’t love you in the way you are hoping for. Get away from me…EEEWWW!!”
Such a goofball.
I am the bride, and I’m here to answer a few questions.
1) Yes, that’s the groom. He’s a goofball (as proven in the picture).
2) It was a very casual wedding. All the guys wore jeans and plaid shirts and the girls wore sun dresses. It was adorable!
3) The dress is muddy because it was an outdoor wedding (in a tent), and an hour before the wedding started, a huge storm rolled through…tornado sirens and all! This picture was taken after walking around the wedding location for various other photo ops. I got the dress for ridiculously cheap, so I didn’t really care if it ended up getting muddy. I wanted to have fun and not worry about my dress all day.
4) Yes, it’s a tattoo on my arm.
Thanks Bethany! Sounds great!
Bethany, it sounds like a wonderful wedding! This is such a great capture that so many stories could be written to it!
Why would she let her dress get dirty like that?!? For some reason that is killing me!
She had a good day. Who cares…it’s just a dress. I mean yes it’s nice to wear a white dress on your wedding day but are you really planning on wearing it again?
ugh.. that’s her brother..
oooof! ya baby ya!
To offset the price of her wedding, Suzie agreed to a “kiss the bride for a buck” hour at the park- but she wasn’t happy about it!
Maybe this is the day after the wedding and she is doing a photoshoot of “Trash the Dress” where they take pics of her jumping in the lake and getting the dress dirty. It would explain him not being dressed up.
Nope, wedding day. Yes, he’s the groom.
It is an unwritten rule that anyone who gets married on this golf course must kiss the groundskeeper.
That comment belongs in the “Far Side” Awesome!
She might be upset because he’s not wearing a tuxedo. It came as a complete surprise to her and now she’s really mad!
The slanted horizon line makes it look like they’re about to start tumbling down a hill…
The soiled hem of her dress really helps balance out the flannel.
It’s a nice day for a PLAID wedding!
Hahahah, yeah Billy!!!
Now all you need is a couple of farm animals in the background doin “it”!
“This way for your num-nums!!”
“If you don’t stop struggling and kiss me back I’m gonna throw you in the lake!”
Awkward – yes…Engagement – no!
Come on AFP, you know you are getting more than one photo a day (for the Christmas ones and these…) share the wealth!
Her look of disgust is just priceless!
There is no way this guy is the groom and wore this getup to marry her. Maybe it was the rehearsal. If it was the wedding, than he must be thanking her for letting him dress like he didn’t care.
Actually the couple had everyone in the wedding party dress like that. It looked very nice despite what most people would think.
I think it suits the couple’s outdoorsy personality and why should everyone spend money on stuff they aren’t going to wear again?
Hello my pretty! *Chomp* *Devour*
That’s the same look I give my husband when he goes to kiss me and has bad breath! lol.
Did Paul Bunyan drag her through the mud for that smooch?!
“I will hug her and squeeze her and love her and pet her, and I will call her George.”
Gosh it’s hot!
OMG total win!!
Dude! Curb your enthusiasm!
You too, Larry David!
Nice that he got all dressed up for the occasion.
He could smoosh me any time! WOOF! +jof
Is that a tattoo on her forearm? Not that there’s anything WRONG with a tattoo on the forearm, but I am just trying to verify.
I can’t tell if it’s a tattoo or a shadow from the flowers.
It’s a tattoo.
It looks like she may be having second thoughts.
has she just been kidnapped?
That would be a better explanation than the groom wearing jeans and flannel!
wait why does she have a dress on and he has jeans on
aimee, oh yes she knows him. I know him from high school and I have seen the rest of thier wedding photos! This is hilarious.
What was the rest of the bridal party wearing?
There should be a rule here that if you know the peeps in the pix u should provide INFO!!
Slowly trying too. The rest of the party wore similar clothing. It was really cute and put together well. This is the bride and groom.
All the groomsmen wore plaid shirts and jeans, the bridesmaids wore sundresses. It was a dress down wedding. The parents wore jeans, as did the attenders. It was a great wedding.
Why is that lumberjack attacking that bride?
At least he’s not carrying an axe or chainsaw.. that would take this photo into a whole different dimension.
….or a compund bow….
He really dressed it up for the special occasion.
I wonder what he wears on ordinary days. I’m not sure I really want to know.
nothing at all
I know him. His outfit in the picture is exactly what he wears almost everyday.
That will take a lifetime to live down. Nothing like an empassioned smooch from someone you apparently don’t care about.
Well, in fairness to her, it *would* be difficult to smile when someone has your face in a vice grip.
Nice to see he dressed for the occasion… put on his cleanest flannel! And look- the socks even match the Levi boot-cut jeans!
That’s one lucky l’il’ lady…
Yeah, it don’t git no better than that.
Actually the whole wedding party dressed like that and it was really nice.
Well, it saves money on tux rentals, that’s for sure…..
This would actually be a cute picture if the guy took his kiss-intensity DOWN by a few levels!!
Wow, this is twice in one month that I know people that have been featured on this site! It’s a small world after all…or maybe I just know a lot of awkward people! Haha!
Hey Jake! Hey Adam! I miss you guys!
Congrats Jake! I heard you had gotten married!
So this is bride and groom?
Ok, so can you enlighten us about this guy please?
Please, please, you have to give us the story behind the awkwardness. Also, which one is Jake?
Which is jake and which is adam? Katie needs to be peenched for not anticipating these questions.
Jake is the groom and the guy in the picture. This is the couple on their wedding day.
So the one in the dress is Adam?!?
omg, Michelle, you just made me laugh so hard I’m crying.
She’s trying to remember Sandra Bullock’s advice. SING… she’s getting ready to aim for the groin.
“You were supposed to marry me, not my brother! He’ll never love you like I would have loved you…”
Is that lace on the bottom of her dress? I cannot tell. And It looks like he’s trying to eat her face like it’s a pie.
“…like it’s a pie.” That’s awesome.
“like it’s a pie” – inspired!!!!
I think it’s just a little mud.
I’m not even convinced that she knows him.
ha ha ha! A wedding-crasher!
This might be the photog demonstrating how he thinks the groom should smooch her in the REAL pic hahaha
I think he’s sucking out the juices before devouring the flesh. Based upon the look on her face… she seems to sense her impending doom.
Is he the groom? Is.. is that her brother? Oh, the questions!
I was wondering the same thing!
Since these are engagement photos, we must assume this is the groom who did not get the “dress up and shave” message for the photo op. Hopefully the bride made a note to self regarding the wedding itself.
Why is she wearing a wedding dress for the engagement photo?
Both of my daughters had pre-wedding pictures done in their wedding dress, but their fiance’ was not allowed. Maybe this guy crashed the photo shoot and she was mad.
I’m confused. Why would you have pre-wedding photos done in your wedding dress?
I Hope thats not an engagement photo because that dress is ruined…maybe its one of those photos before she trashed the dress by rolling in a pile of mud with it on….anyhow bet the next photo showed her smacking him in the face with those flowers…
I know the couple. That’s them…on their wedding day. Probably just goofing off.
darn, I was kinda’ hoping he was the brother, and that maybe someone would post his phone number, and that maybe he liked older women, and kids, and a little extra padding on his women…… oh well. Guess not.
