A sword, no doubt. It’s actually a double-edged present; in addition to being man-pleasin’ and generally awesome, swords also represent the original purpose of groomsmen – to defend the groom and prevent villains from stealing the bride.
**Brief conversation before the wedding:
Bride: “Where are the guys right now?”
“Out back killing a dinosaur.”
This may be one of my all-time favorite wedding moments. We were taking pictures at Gabrella Manor, and Jennifer was walking out to meet Ryan for the first time before the wedding. I took some pictures as all the girls were walking through the courtyard, and then I was going to run down to the other side of Ryan, so I could see his face as Jennifer walked out to him. Only she didn’t walk, she picked up her dress and ran! I don’t have a picture to show for it, but I’m so glad that I got to witness such an awesome expression of love.
