Can you bear with me for ONE MORE wedding post? I guess you have no choice unless you stop reading at this second...
The last story I wanted to share was of Eric's tie clip. I had the great idea to buy him a tie clip as a surprise. The morning of the wedding, I gave the gift to our best man Brian to hand to Eric.
Everything went as planned, EXCEPT - Eric had already bought a [different] whale tie clip to wear to surprise ME.
Here is Eric laughing while opening the gift.
Afterwards, he swapped the tie clips - he put the clip from me on his tie and put the one he had bought in the box and handed it back to Brian to bring to me. [Are you still following this?!]
I was confused why I was getting the box back. I was still confused when I opened the box to find a different whale tie clip in it until Brian told the story that Eric had bought himself a clip.
Here I am laughing at this whale tie clip situation.
In the end, Eric wore the clip from me and Brian wore the one Eric had bought. Worked out perfectly!
This was probably one of my favorite memories of the day.
