Real Wedding Moments

"It's a Jewish tradition for the bride to circle the groom seven times before the ceremony begins. As I was circling, I noticed several guests frantically motioning to me that I had something on my face. Turns out my mother had left a big lipstick mark when she kissed me after she and my father walked me down the aisle. I tried to inconspicuously rub my cheek as I circled Dan, but guests kept signaling that the lipstick still wasn't gone. Finally, I blurted out, 'Which cheek is it?!' Everyone started laughing and it really broke the ice—the ceremony felt much more relaxed after that!"

—Kim Forrest, married May 22, 2010, in Water Mill
