Ring bearer owl tries to ditch the wedding, flies into a closed window

You had one job.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson may have starred in Wedding Crashers, but they’re not the only guests behaving badly and having a hoot on someone else’s special day.

A bride getting married last September apparently loved owls so much that she hired a trainer to have one of the majestic birds bring the rings in during the ceremony (or maybe she just didn’t trust any of age-appropriate children in the family). But when the owl was released to soar over the venue and up to the wedding party, it decided to go with a flight plan of its own and slammed right into a window. There’s a collective “OOOooh” as the whole room winces in pain.

And for all those concerned, the owl is reportedly fine. We hope the rest of the wedding ceremony was too.
