In the digital age of Facebook, Twitter and 24/7 texting, it seems as though very few things are sacred anymore. People text in movie theaters, in class and even while driving.
But one woman was caught texting in a really unusual place — her own wedding.
After making her way down the aisle with her father, the California bride paused, pulled a cell phone out of the top of her dress and began to text under her veil. She used one hand to text as the other held her father’s hand.
“This is part of a wedding video I shot in August 2008 at the Mission Beach Women’s Club in San Diego, CA,” videographer James Costa wrote on his YouTube page. “It was otherwise perfectly normal except for this one funny clip of the bride TEXTING just after her dad walked her down the aisle!”
Costa couldn’t believe his eyes when he noticed the covert messaging.
“At one point, I noticed her doing it through my lens and I had to pull away form the camera to make certain I was seeing what I thought I was seeing,” Costa wrote.
The preacher can be heard in the background beginning the ceremony. The bride’s back was to her guests, but Costa caught the moment on camera.
“The minister was busy reading his opening comments and her back was to everyone in attendance,” Costa wrote. “I was the only one to see her. Her dad glanced over at her and then saw me doing a double take and began to laugh out loud!”
The bride’s father appears visibly embarrassed in the video and at one point opens his mouth and begins to move his arm as though he’s going to say something to her, but he refrains, and let’s the bride do — or text — whatever she wants on her special day.
