Traditionalists can gripe about wedding guests relentlessly taking smartphone pictures during weddings, or the obsessive documentation of ceremonies on social media, but there's at least one huge defense of this behavior: If your official photographer monumentally screws up, at least you'll have a handful of amateur photos to fall back on. Not so for Jeb Bush.
Today Bush, who will inevitably run for president because duh, celebrates his 41st wedding anniversary with his possibly shopaholic wife Columba. Because sharing is caring, he decided to show the world his one and only wedding photo. Yes, he only has one single wedding photo — a lone piece of precious proof that the day actually happened.
He took to Facebook to explain:
True story: This is the only picture from our wedding. The photographer, my brother Marvin, accidentally rerolled from a Frank Zappa concert. Thankfully, my mom took one photo with a Kodak.
You can just see Barbara Bush elbowing Marvin out of the way — she knew he'd fuck it up somehow, Marvin always does, she told them they should just hire a regular wedding photographer — to get at least one picture of her own. The only person Barbara could trust to capture such a special day was Barbara. Guess she was right.
