I photographed the wedding of Katie and Darren at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Annandale, VA. A reception followed at Springfield Country Club where I witnessed one of the craziest things in my wedding photography career. The notion that bridesmaids are competitive and aggressive during the bouquet toss has largely gone away. In the last 10 years, I would estimate that only about 25% of all wedding even still have a bouquet toss. However, at this event, a mixture of pride and drink created a WWE wrestling extravaganza. As the photos below demonstrate, all of the bridesmaids seemed determined to exit victorious, but the bride’s sister was exceptionally motivated. As the flowers are tossed everyone is trying to jockey for position. Two women caught the bouquet at the same time and fell to the floor. They begin to wrestle for the prize. Half the crowd was in shock and the other half was doubled over in laughter. The sister won out. The rest of the reception was tame in comparison, and everyone had a great time.
