Most brides have a difficult time choosing their maid of honor. Who, among their oldest and dearest friends, would be the best at the job? Who deserves it the most? Who would be the most salty were they not to be given the role? Then there’s a whole list of criteria the perfect MOH needs to fulfill in order to be granted this, uh, honor. Is she responsible? Does she have enough time to fulfill those responsibilities? Most importantly, will she completely photobomb my wedding photos, and is this disastrous or hysterical? (We’re gonna go with the latter.)
Sharilyn Wester recently served as the maid of honor in Rebecca and James Foster’s wedding. When wedding photographer Ashley Hempel asked her to help out with the veil toss portion of the pictures, Sharilyn decided to have a little fun.
Except the fun didn’t stop at just one photobomb.
If you’re wondering whether James is blind or willfully ignorant, let me ease your worries: The groom not only saw what was going on, he was in on the prank!
“The groom had no idea what we decided to do, but once we started acting goofy, he played along and was laughing,” Sharilyn told Huffington Post Canada.
“We had been outside in the 36C [96 Fahrenheit] weather in the sun all day in formal attire for hours, and we figured we could try and perk everyone up and make them laugh,” the photographer explained.
When asked about the relationship between the MOH of and the bride, Hempel said they were like two peas in a pod. “They are hilarious,” the photographer said of the two. “They have each other’s backs — constantly striking poses and goofing off even during the getting ready photos.”
“I think they’re the type of friends who will be 75 at an old folks’ home pantsing the orderlies.”
Wow. In this situation, I feel like Sharilyn and Rebecca are the real #RelationshipGoals.
