A marriage is about sharing—the good, the bad, and the ugly. And it seems nobody understood this better than this 33-year-old groom and his bride at a special wedding in South Carolina.
The wedding day is indeed the biggest day for any bride, and Jaclyn Summers was going all out to make it the perfect ceremony. But little did she know that things were going to take a turn for the worse!
Twenty-eight-year-old Jaclyn Summers was at her home in South Carolina. She was already on the verge of a nervous breakdown planning out the last details of her wedding ten days away when she heard her dogs get into a quarrel downstairs. Rushing downstairs, she tripped and fell down the stairs. She ended up with a broken wrist and some nerve damage. Suddenly, she saw her dream wedding day falling to pieces. “I have NEVER broken a bone EVER in my life, and this happens now!”
Ever supportive of his fiancée, Jonathan tried to console her but realized deep down that she was devastated and nothing would really make her feel better. Kissing her forehead and patting her cast-enclosed hand, Jonathan had an idea.
The big day had arrived. The bride in the wrist cast and her groom exchanged their vows in Charleston at the Magnolia Plantation, and later, the photographer started taking pictures of the bride in her beautiful wedding gown. This was the cue for Jonathan to execute his plan.
Jonathan had gotten all the guests wrist casts to wear at the party. He coordinated with the wedding photographer and the guests two days before the wedding to create a happy moment for his bride. Jaclyn had no clue of what was going to happen.
Jaclyn joined her husband at the wedding party along with the guests. The photographer motioned the bride to raise her wrist for the wedding picture. As she weakly raised her hand, she heard Jonathan say, “I think I wear it better.”
When she turned to him, she was surprised to see Jonathan had a cast on his wrist as well. Then, on cue, all the other ten guests raised their cast-ridden arms and shouted, “No… we wear it better!” The photographer captured the moment and smiled at a plan well executed.
Jaclyn said in the Inside Edition video, “I was literally laughing to the point of tears…It was something I had no idea they were doing.”
“It was the best day of my life. I never expected Jonathan to do that, it was so creative and sweet. I needed that. It helped me cope with everything going on at that point,” Jaclyn said.
