Why have bridesmaids when you can have Nereids?
The other bridesmaids and I (second from the right, pulling the flask from my bosom) surprised the bride with this (staged!) shot of us loosening up pre-nuptuals around the side of the church.
But what this picture doesn't show you is that the bride is hot-wiring the car in front of them as a getaway vehicle.
So the maid of honor and I negotiated this shot with the photographer via silent gestures and nod, right behind the bride's back, on-the-spot during the pictures. It was our one goof move, and the MOH has the classic musical theater "stage moment!" look, while I have my maniacal mad-scientist elementary teacher face on. She had no idea until she got the pictures back!
