The happy, and quite possibly very sleepy, couple pictured above is Mr. and Mrs. Conner and Hannah Courtney. They were married in a very emotional wedding ceremony a few weeks ago in Arcadia. We (and the rest of the world) know and care about this because Conner's mom decided to shame and embarrass her son by posting the following video on Facebook:
THIS is Conner seeing his bride for the FIRST time as she enters to walk down the aisle. I've NEVER seen my son MORE happy and emotional as he is at this very moment. I warned him the whole time he would need oxygen when he saw her!! lol This is STILL making me cry to watch it! Ugh! lol #proudestmomevermoment #eatdrinkandbecourtney
First of all, I'd just like to say that there's nothing wrong with a man crying at his wedding. In fact, I almost did the same damn thing when I watched my freedom, independence and individuality burn like the wick from a unity candle at a hotel in Las Vegas 10 years ago. It's an emotional thing to deal with. Cry away, man. Cry away.
I watched the video several times to determine the spot where Conner first came to grips with his future, and visualize future texts from his wife telling him to come home right before he and his buddies are about to tee off at Top Golf:
After that, he saw future Thanksgivings and Christmases with his in-laws...
And then he realized his groomsmen were dressed up like back-up banjo players for Mumford and Sons...
Okay, okay, I'm just joking around Sensitivity Police. I get it. Conner was overcome with emotion and crying tears of joy. He's looking forward to an amazing future with the woman he not only loves, but the one who will be telling him what to do for rest of his life. I don't blame him for crying. Congrats!
That being said, wouldn't you kind of be mad at your mom if she posted a video of you crying on Facebook, and then three days later you were being interviewed by News 9 and Huffington Post about it? Once again, there's nothing wrong with a man showing sensitivity and emotion, just like there's also nothing wrong with a man drinking a strawberry daiquiri, watching the Bachelor or using women's deodorant. You just don't want the entire world to know about it.
