Jess was excited about what she and her sister had planned for her closest friend. Added to her newly wedded bliss, it just made every dance out on the floor with her friends that much sweeter.
Then, the time finally came for the bouquet toss—except Jess wasn’t throwing the bouquet at all. “[We] had the song change from ‘Man I Feel Like A Woman’ to Bruno Mars’s ‘Marry Me,’” Jess said. When this happened, Jessica—waiting for the toss—looked confused.
Jessica couldn’t understand what was going on until she spotted her friend walking toward her. “I started walking to Jessica, and there was a moment where we locked eyes, and as I went to pass her the bouquet, she started hysterically sobbing, saying, ‘No, are you serious?’”
“I said, ‘Yes, turn around!’” Jessica was in total disbelief. She knew that this day was going to be one they would never forget, and now it was looking like that was doubly true—but not for any reason she ever suspected.
“I was looking forward to that all day. Even walking down the aisle I was so excited about it happening,” said Jess. Most brides would never dream of sharing the spotlight with someone else, even a friend, but that wasn’t the case for Jess.
