When a groom turned to look at his bride on the day of their wedding, he found that his best man, who had a beard, was standing at the altar instead. This caused the groom to bust out laughing hysterically at the altar.
David Hofmann, age 32, was anticipating seeing his soon-to-be bride, Brianne Dennis, in her white gown; however, to his astonishment, she had switched places with their mutual friend, Timmy Horton, age 37.
Anna Morrison, a photographer, captured the moment that David almost passed out from laughing so hard after seeing his friend with the beard dressed up as a frock and wearing a veil.
David was shocked to find his friend in the costume.
David, who is an electrician by trade, shared his thoughts by saying, “Right at that point, I was nervous. I was attempting to calm my anxieties in preparation for the first time I would see my bride.
“When I turned around, I was expecting to see Brianne, but instead I saw Timmy dressed in a bridal dress.
“He was emaciated and covered in hair, and although we love each other very much, we do not love each other in that way.” I was literally rolling on the floor with laughter.
Dennis and Horton, both 29, got the idea for their prank after viewing a number of humorous wedding jokes on the internet.
The bride was hesitant at first, but in the end, she came around and suggested that they play a prank on Hofmann by staging a false “first look” picture.
A wedding custom known as the “first look” allows future wives to give their future husbands a sneak peek of how they will appear on their wedding day only seconds before walking down the aisle.
Dennis, who lives with David and her son, who is 4 years old, in Marysville, Washington, said, “I really wanted a meaningful ceremony at first.
I was adamant that I wouldn’t participate in any of their antics on the big day, but after some time had passed, I changed my mind.
On the day of the event, an emotional Hofmann waited nervously while Horton changed into a spare bridal dress and donned a delicate chiffon veil. Hofmann was overcome with emotion.
Then, the prankster in costume touched the groom on the shoulder as the bride’s and groom’s friends and relatives watched on and tried their best to contain their laughter.
Horton, who lives in Snohomish, stated, “I was really frightened and anxious since it’s my best friend and I love the bride and groom so much.” Horton is quoted as saying, “I was really nervous and anxious.”
“[However], when it occurred, I was completely unable to contain my laughter, and I came out laughing. I believe that it served to break the ice as well as the tension.”
When Hofmann finally got to see his real bride for the first time moments after the prank, he was moved with emotion and said, “Brianne has always been lovely so I didn’t expect anything less.”
“There had been a lot of things leading up to that moment, and when I first saw her, all of a sudden I simply felt finished.
There had been a lot of things leading up to that time. I’ll never forget that day, and I’ll never forget that moment.”
On November 17th, Hofmann and Dennis went ahead and tied the knot in a ceremony that was held at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish. The ceremony was attended by all of their friends and family.
“I get a really good feeling whenever I look at the images. I’m really glad we did it. “It was such a hilarious experience,” the woman who is now Mr. Hofmann adds.
A close friend of the couple named Anna, a photographer, said the following: “We made a memory that will last forever and laughed so hard that everyone was weeping.”
