Sean planned a stellar day for he and Sara. Jokes flew all day about how long he’d waited to get married, so it seemed he was going to make sure that he got the most out of the day and had a couple of wedding day surprises planned.
As an Eagles fan and employee, Sean part of the Philadelphia Eagles Pep Band and Swoop come up from Philly to surprise Sara. They played at the cocktail hour and took photos with the bride and groom, as well as some of the guest. Then there were the surprise bagpipers that lead the ceremony and reception off. Sara and Sean had a good time dancing an Irish Jig to kick off the reception. They even had a quick boat ride planned around Harvey’s Lake. While not a total wedding surprise, it was a really cool idea.
Special touches like these can make your wedding video and overall day that much more special because they add a personal touch to all the festivities.
While waiting on Sara and Sean to come back ashore, we noticed that another boat on the lake had stopped them. At first we thought it was well wishers given the “Just Married” sign. But as time passed and a second boat appeared, we realized it was actually the Lake’s boating authorities. The boat Sean and Sara were in had just been remodeled, but had forgotten to display its license properly and the fire extinguisher was in the wrong place.
For Sara and Sean, it was a bit of an inconvenience to sit and wait for the inspection and ticket to be written. The ordeal took about 45 minutes. Luckily, they were both good sports about it and in the wedding video we have them coming ashore smiling and waving. Plus, they now have a truly unique story about their special day. Remember, if you have surprises and special events planned, always add in extra time for delays and mishaps. This way you can keep you stress levels to a minimum and enjoy all the ups and downs of the day!
