When Elizabeth Rex Hundley married Tom Gardner, she wanted to make the first moment he saw her unforgettable for him.
Spoiler alert: She succeeded in a hilarious way.
She totally trolled him by showing up in T-rex costume, and the look on his face when he turns around is as timeless as the dinosaurs themselves.
And while she did it to get a laugh, there was a more practical reason as well.
”My mother’s maiden name, and my middle name, is Rex,” she said. “So, I thought it would be funny to wear the costume on the day I would go from a Rex/Hundley to a Gardner.
Tom Gardner admits he was shocked by what he saw.
“I was floored, completely and utterly surprised at what she did,” he said. “I was totally disarmed and could not stop from bursting with laughter. It was just so her.”
The happy groom said the T-rex costume was the perfect start to their life together.
“It validated for me all the planning that went into that day and started things off right and kept it lighthearted,” he said. “I knew I was marrying my partner in life.”
