I remember my wedding day like it was yesterday. August 1, 1998. It was 103 degrees in the shade at the Bakersfield Museum of Art in Bakersfield, CA. For some reason I still can't explain my ex-wife and I thought it would be great to have an outdoor wedding at 5 o'clock in the afternoon. In case you're wondering...yes, that is the hottest time of the day in Bakersfield!

I'm certain no one would have blamed me if at some point I had ran off and jumped into a fountain to cool off. Perhaps had I done that I would have come to my senses and not gotten married! But hey, I was in love and it seemed like a great idea to make 250 people suffer through our nuptials.

However, everyone was shocked when this groom made a mad dash for the water. Last week, after their ceremony, the bride and groom went to take some wedding photos next to a river. While they were there, the groom saw a little kid fall in the water and go under. The bride was doing some solo shots with the photographer. And by the time she looked over, her new husband had already jumped down in his suit to save the kid.

Of course the photographer took pictures of the rescue...and now they're blowing up on Facebook. Apparently the kid's friends pushed him in the water.

The bride says she was confused at first, and didn't know why he jumped in the water in his suit. But he's a great guy...so when she found out why he did it, she wasn't surprised.
