… everyone was having an awesome time getting down on the dance floor. Our DJ was playing great songs and everyone was dancing, even my extremely reserved dad. We’re midway through an amazing song and then all of a sudden everything goes black and the music stops. We realize that the power is out, but it isn’t out just in our pavilion, it’s out on the entire property.
We get a call from the mother of our flower girls who was driving the girls back to the hotel. Apparently, someone piloting a hot air balloon was attempting to land but hit the power lines outside our location and the balloon caught on fire. (No one was hurt.)
It took about 20 minutes for the power to kick back on. We got some hilarious hilarious flashlight pictures out it.
What’s your crazy wedding story?

i bet out of all the things that could have gone wrong, that was one thing no one was expecting, haha.
my parents were at a wedding where the power went out and i don’t think it ever came back on. the only music they had was from a piano player.
i don’t have a crazy wedding story yet. ask me again in about 4 months 🙂

I’m curious where the flashlights came from.

My amazing in-laws purchased a box of handheld fans the day before, since our wedding was outdoors. It turns out they were flashlight/fan combos. They ended up being the best purchase of the day.

This happened to my friend and she said it was actually her favorite part of the wedding (when the power went out)!
