Most weddings have mishaps — the best man misplaces the ring, the flower girl gets scared when it’s her turn to walk down the aisle, or the bride stumbles over her vows.
But Michigan couple Katelyn and Corey Love’s May 31 wedding had a slightly more dramatic faux pas, thanks to their wedding photographer.
The couple’s photographer accidentally called Katelyn “Taylor,” which is Corey’s ex-girlfriend’s name, as she was taking pictures of them — twice.
Their videographer, John Pattyson Videography, captured the awkward incident and shared it on TikTok, where it’s garnered over three million views since it was posted on July 6.
In the video, Katelyn and Corey pose with their bridal party on either side of them. As their photographer tries to get their attention, she says, “Corey and Taylor look at each other,” as the well-known “oh no” TikTok song plays in the background of the video.
Members of the bridal party immediately started laughing and opening their mouths in shock after the misnomer, and the photographer quickly corrected herself.
“That’s his ex’s name,” Katelyn said in the video through a laugh.
“Are you serious?” the photographer responded, seeming to understand the magnitude of the mistake.
But the video then skips to another clip, where the photographer calls Katelyn by the wrong name again.
“Corey and Taylor look at each other,” she says. The bridal party reacted even more dramatically to the second misname, with one groomsman yelling “oh my God,” and Katelyn saying her own name in lighthearted frustration.
“Just say the couple,” one of the groomsmen joked, trying to help the photographer not mix up the names again.
Pattyson wrote in a comment under the video that the photographer worked a wedding the weekend before the Loves’ nuptials where the bride’s name actually was Taylor, which led to the mix-up.
“It’s just so funny that this video blew up because after I got called the wrong name twice we totally forgot about it until I got a text from a friend that said you’re viral,” Katelyn told Insider of the TikTok.
“It was just such a coincidence, and it took us all a while to be like, ‘wait is that what she really said?'” Katelyn went on to say of the name mixup. “It definitely didn’t ruin our day. We all got a good laugh out of it.”
Pattyson did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
