Don't know whether to laugh or cry at that one. That's a story for the 
ages. I once shot a wedding where I wasn't sure the couple would remain 
betrothed through the reception. I'm convinced the bride hurled the bouquet 
at the back of the grooms head, barely missing (and have photos to prove 
it). Years later they're still happily married. You just never know.
