Best. wedding. video. ever!!!

It only took 30 minutes out of their day and no one was hurt or anything and the wedding was able to continue – is there really that much harm done? 

If it was me I would personally think that the story was hilarious and be telling it to everyone. Who can honestly say that they have been hauled off by police in flak jackets?! That’s a once in a lifetime experience right there!

Plus, the clues they had (not knowing how to spell each others last names and her visa expiring in 6 weeks) DO look like huge red flags to an outsider.

@Everdeen:  you would be fine with ’30 minutes or rigorous questioning’ that interrupted your ceremony? doesnt say that’s how long was taken from their day, that’s how long the questioning alone was.

@Pixienickie:  That’s a good point. I guess I assumed that it was 30 minutes total and that the day would be relatively uninterrupted in the grand scheme of weddings (given that most people plan a 30 minute buffer in somewhere).

If it was hours long and they missed their reservation at the restaurant, then yes, I would most likely be upset…but I still think that in years to come this will be the best story ever. 

I’m one of those weirdos who hopes that I have something go wrong at the wedding (though not completely awful) so that I have a great story to tell. Example – leaving the rings behind and having to use ring pops that we sent someone racing out to buy – adorable! Falling in a pool before the ceremony – awful!
