A hilarious video showing a bride texting during the service was posted on YouTube and had about 38,000 views.
The footage shows the bride standing with the groom directly in front of the preacher during the service and she suddenly puts her hand down her chest and pulls out her cellphone.
As the preacher talks of the sanctity of marriage and God’s love, the bride furiously sends a text message.
After the text the bride replaces the cell phone down the front of her dress.
The groom, meanwhile, looks more than just a little embarrassed.
At one point it looks as though he’s going to say something but, hey, it’s the bride’s big day so let her carry on.
Presumably the bride had the phone on vibrate.
The hilarious moment was captured by professional videographer Jim Costa, who uploaded it on YouTube.

“At one point, I noticed her doing it through my lens and I had to pull away from the camera to make certain I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. Totally funny!”
The video has had about 38,000 views on YouTube.
