Chris Cooley had his groomsmen play Guitar Hero before he exchanged his wedding vows. He should write a book.

WaPo: An Extra Hitch in a Wedding Day Game Plan

Chris Cooley and Christy Oglevee’s wedding Friday started off with one of those awkward delays — you know, where people start wondering if it’s one of those left-at-the-altar situations. The groom finally appeared to explain to the 200 guests at Lansdowne Resort that the minister was running late: “Everything’s still on,” Cooley reassured them. “Everything’s okay.” Soon afterward, the Redskins tight end, 25, and former Redskins cheerleader, 23, exchanged vows.

Captain Chaos spent most of the day pacing, reports best man Tanner Cooley, while the groomsmen played Guitar Hero and backyard football — but once Cooley slipped on his white suit and pink tie (matching the bouquet and bridesmaids’ dresses) everything went almost as planned: first dance to Bryan Adams’s“Heaven,” sung by the bride’s father, Scott Oglevee, the wedding cake a four-tier pink confection, tons of dancing and late-late-night karaoke.
