Nobody forbid these two to marry, but they decided to poison themselves anyway.

Looks like a high school photography project. I guess that’s one way to save money for your wedding
That is SOOOOO funny. The caption absolutely cracked me up!!!
looks like the result of a terrorist attack
And they paid for this? Wondering who would think this is a good set up and what the rest of the pics look like. Wow
Oh-oh! Neither one is able to awaken the other with love’s first kiss! I guess they’ll just have to lie there until the snow falls and maybe that will wake them up, like it did for Dorothy and Scarecrow. Maybe it is a fairy tale wedding, after all.
They’ll be waiting a long time if they’re in Phoenix!
They look like Yin and Yang.
We were married at a winery and had most of our photos taken before the ceremony. My husband and I were so nervous about our nuptials that we did just about any “arty” shot the photographer suggested, short of stomping grapes and barreling the juice. One of the photos he took reminded me of an ad for a feminine napkin or FDS. I think photographers have a “snicker” file that they open up after a few beers to give their friends some laughs.
P.S. It’s refreshing to see a bride who is NOT wearing a strapless wedding gown.
Thats a good point, and I understand not wanting to be rude, but if someone told me to lay in the grass wearing the most expensive thing I would ever put on I would have to put my foot down.
Temple weddings are exhausting
I wondered if that was a temple. Looks like one but I didn’t know which.
But the prince was hungry, so he took a bite of the apple, too. And so the dwarves found them.
Oh,no,Theocentrica….the “Spelling Police” are doing their rounds of this site…..quick,change dwarves to dwarfs.
I see dead people.
They get extra special bonus points for the amazing fade around the edges of the frame…
Oooops! that’s the “bride’s” corpse, I mean.
Thank God the puncuation police are on vacation!
The Punctuation Police are NEVER on vacation.
Well, since we’re all about grammar, today: It’s “lying,” East of Eden, not “laying.” I’m lying on the ground. I’m laying the brides corpse in the dress box. It lay around the attic for a hundred years. Just sayin’……..
I have to laugh at this picture more than the rest of you…I got married at this same venue in Mesa, AZ. The place where they are um, laying, is perpetually muddy. I wonder how bad her dress was after she got up, and if her mother strangled the photog.
“Till death do you part”
They didn’t want to wait that long after the ceremony to fufill that one.
At the movies this summer…”Death Fog”.
It floats. It poisons. It gives us awkward photos.
See it, before it kills YOU!!
Her lower half didn’t disappear, she’s just incredibly thin (still is after a bunch of cute roly-poly babies)
Her dress wasn’t grass-stained…it was gorgeous.
He’s not 10 feet tall, but he does have monkey arms and legs (sorry bro!)
I like the “boog check” comment. Hilarious (and not entirely improbable with these two)!
Tell us more – what did bride and groom think of the photo?
Thought it was horrible, hence submitting it to this wonderful website.
So I guess the throwing of the wedding bouquet is out of the question. And, what shall we do with the gifts?
Stop, drop and roll.
Such a shame they only made it to step two!
Ring a round the rosie,
A pocket full of posies,
An unsual wedding tradition, I will concede.
Most photographers carry blankets or throws with them so people won’t get their clothes dirty.
That said, the groom definitely looks like a corpse, he’s so stiff. Nobody relaxes on the grass looking like that. The vignette is of course a standard wedding photography trick.
This was a poorly exectued, but kind of cute, idea.
In love? check
Nice wedding? check
Squishy,just watered lawn?check
This is what a funny string looks like, people!!!
Simultaneous boog check… “yep you’re good, now how ’bout me, yep you’re good too, sweet, now lets get serious and take us some photos!!
What bride would be crazy enough to lay on the grass in that expensive dress?
“Til Death Do Us Part” came a little quick….
Now that’s a relaxed groom.
Has anybody noticed how LONG this guy’s legs are? He must be 10 feet tall! Maybe that’s why they are laying down. They couldn’t fit him in the picture standing up!
Geez, are they “tired” of each other already? Sorry, couldn’t help it.
Are they trying to do a Romeo and Juliet scene, or were they really tired, and took a nap before the reception. What was the photographer thinking? I bet this photo is framed and resides above their mantle ready to creep out guests.
The caption is hilarious!
… at first glance I though it was smoke, so it looked as though they died in a fire? … odd indeed lol
The photographer couldn’t afford live models so his buddy, the undertaker, lent him some who would work for free if the photog designed a flier for the 2 for 1 special being offered to married couples.
No one is safe from Carbon Monoxide, the silent killer.
I got nothin…..
The tux rental shop couldn’t figure out why there were grass clippings in the cummerbund.
FYI, it’s forbade, not forbid. Forbade is the past tense.
Thank you…the caption bothered me about as much as the picture.
That’s exactly what I thought…but I’m an editor so sue me
Everybody thinks they’re Shakespeare.
Whew, thank you! I didn’t want to play grammar police today, but I could barely restrain myself.
Hm, I’m sure there’s a pun waiting to be born somewhere in my last sentence.
I’m only reading the comments because I came to post this myself.
what’s important here is that HE went down first (maybe it was the poison tree shadow). she followed – to listen for the heartbeat, to support the neck/remove chicken bone from the passed apps – THEN her lower half actually disintegrated into the lawn.
Every mother dreams of passing on her grass stained wedding gown to her daughter…
Heaven, I’m in heaven, and my heart stopped beating so I cannot speak. Oh I seem to find the happiness I seek, when we’re laid out on the lawn, cheek to cheek!
LOL, I was thinking the exact same thing! I didn’t know other people (under the age of 60) knew the standards. 😀
Of course there’s plenty, that’s why they’re “standards” aka classics! LOL But I *might* be over 60. (not yet)
I’m 27. I got it. Thanks to Ella and Louis on the Verve recordings, I don’t think that one will be forgotten too soon.
Even the edges of the photo are a little hazy signifying that they are both gone.
Oh wow, this photo is so beautiful. I really like the blurry effect around the edges, and how it’s been taken on a university’s front lawn.
I believe this photo was taken in Phoenix. Maybe they fainted from the heat.
Technically its Mesa just East of Phoenix at the LDS Temple. But yeah, its the heat that got them hahaha!
I was thinking Temple, too…
Aw, and I was thinking they were a couple of grad students. That’s how grad students usually look.
It does not bode well for the honeymoon if you fall asleep during the ceremony…
I think they misunderstood the advice they got from Uncle Tim. He said, “It’s important to sleep together before you get married.”
HAHAHAHA! Wow, yeah, this is awfully awkward. Terrible idea for a wedding photo!
Oh, AFP. How I love thee. You are a guaranteed laugh every day. And whoever writes your captions is pure genius.
Forbade. The past tense of forbid is forbade. It would be funnier if it was spelled correctly.
Came here to post just this. And, just for the record, it’s pronounced “for-bad,” even thought probably only you and I care about that fact. 🙁
GET IT RIGHT PPL…………..it is FORBID
• verb (forbidding; past forbade /forbad, -bayd/ or forbad; past part. forbidden) 1 refuse to allow. 2 order not to do.
(also forbad) past of FORBID.
It’s the past tense. In other words, “Nobody refused to allow these two to marry”, not “Nobody refuse to allow these two to marry.” (How would that sentence even make sense in the present tense? “Quick, nobody forbid it!”)
The past tense of forbid is, as your cut-n-pasted definition says, “forbade”.
Why can’t people just be quiet and laugh about the dang picture instead of complaining about the tense of a word. You guys knew what they meant. Relax and just laugh already…
I’m in a really bad mood but that photo made me smile.
And I got a huge laugh at the linguistic debate over forbid/forbade. Wow, with all the bad to stupid verbiage that flows through cyberspace and this is what you criticise? The use of language changes language. The rules change through time. And don’t forbade me to say it.
Jeez! No kidding! At least it wasn’t in ALL CAPS with no punctuation…
And who really cares if it’s passed tents.
Reciprocating head-rests: Because arm-shelf’s are mundane and exhausting.

In health and in sickness, In the shade on the front lawn sleeping it off…
I’m offended this is here! Narcolepsy is NOT a laug…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
iLOLd – I always love your comments. I LOL’d.
Yeah, iLOLd at iLOLd.
I think the worst part about this picture is the circle soft focus filter. Why do people want their pictures out of focus.
The photographer obviously got his initial training at Olan Mills.
It looks like a vision of the future through a crystal ball. Maybe it isn’t too late to stop the wedding. 😉
High school production of Romeo & Juliet in modern dress? Too tired to go to the hotel after the party? Was this the photographers idea? If so, why would you hire him?
The soft focus around the edges makes me feel like I’ve been poisoned too.
ROTFL! Nice! XD
When I first looked at it, I thought it was smoke! The photographer went a little overboard.
It’s a digital enhancement on photodshop- very poorly done too.
thought the same thing too.
Ah, Voltron, god of Photoshop!
I would’ve poisoned the photographer after I got my proofbook back for this picture.
…having forgotten that you posed for it?
“If a photographer told you to lay on the grass in your expensive gown and get grass stains…”
What is wrong with photographers? Why don’t people say no???
I can just imagine the photographer thinking: “This looked a whole lot more romantic in my head…”
Maybe it was the couple’s idea.
