Winner 8: Bekah Walsh
A Wedding Story:
"The truest advice any bride can receive is this: something will go wrong.
Yep. It's how it is. Anticipate it, deal with it, move on. Seriously. Don't be a bridezilla. It will never be perfect, so don't let your attitude worsen things.
The truth of that statement is why our pre-wedding prep pics are to a minimum. I had a 10 a.m. makeup appointment. At 10:30 I was informed my person called out sick. So, a stranger was left to cautiously do my makeup step by step to meet my approval, meaning it took twice as long as normal and we were already half an hour late."

A Wedding Story, submitted by Wesley Huang:
"The last wedding I went to was for a bride and groom that I met last semester in school. They are probably the shyest individuals you could ever possibly meet. Their wedding was at a farm/barn in Indiana, which was probably the most unique wedding setting I have ever been to. The cups that we drank out of were actually mini glass jars that you would usually store food or origami in. There was a farm tractor outside that gave rides around the farm. The farm owner had a dog that ran all over the place and ended up leaving paw prints smudged with dirt on my suit. What made the wedding memorable was the bride and groom's first dance. They started off the dance with classic swinging back and forth action. Knowing their shy personalities, I was expecting the entire dance to be that one motion. 30 seconds into the dance, the slow music stopped and transitioned into hip hop music. The groom started breakdancing. The bride started swaying to the thick hip hop beat. My jaws dropped. I couldn't believe my eyes. I just looked around the guests at my table in awe. Moral of the story: anything can happen at weddings. It is the one night where the bride and groom can reveal talent that they have been hiding from you for years."
