"After receiving Ben's quote, I called to tell him I had an unusual request. I explained that I wanted to play a little prank on my Groom. This would require a well rehearsed plan from me and the groomsmen. Ben loved the idea and agreed to help out!
Ben sent me a few documents requesting names of all persons that are part of the wedding, etc. About a week before the wedding I got really nervous and contacted Ben about my prank. We went over the details one final time.
The day of the ceremony, Ben arrived early and rounded up the Best man and the Maid of honor to sign the certificate. Ben began the ceremony and when giving a little history about us, I abruptly interrupted and asked him to stop a minute. I played my prank, which was giving my Groom a ball hat in his favorite team. I then told Ben to continue. When it came time to recite vows, I was ready with mine but I had scared the Groom so bad that he couldn't even speak! Ben was able to help him from the embarrassment by just using the standard.
The best part of asking Ben to officiate was the beautiful folder he put together and presented to us. It was the entire ceremony customized to include our parents, wedding party, and the poem I asked him to use. It was an extremely thoughtful gift! Thank you Ben for making our ceremony lighthearted and fun."
