sorry to bother you all with this but i have to get this off of my chest.
last saturday was my wedding. and before you ask why did you have it the night of the iowa game, let me explain. when we picked the date and saw that michigan was playing iowa i figured it would be a noon game. but of course its the first game released and its a 8pm start. but that is not what i am pissed about.
as i said last saturday was my wedding night. the ceremony went great, pictures went great (we used the law quad), and the reception was out of this world awesome. the only thing that went wrong while i was still coherent enough to care was my father in-law's cousin getting arrested for being beyond smashed and taking a swing at one of my grooms men and one of the brides maids.
now here is where it went to shit. the next morning as we were loading up cars to leave the hotel, my sister in-law comes running outside and asks if i gave anyone permission to go into the room where the gifts were being held. i said no and asked why. her response was that someone told the front desk at the hotel that they were the best man and said that they had permission from the groom to go into that room and drink. well the thing is my best man was back in canada by 1:30am. well this person saying he was my best man and 3 others, maybe more went into this room that was under lock and key and unwrapped all of the gifts, stole $100 cash that we know of from a card that was with one of the gifts, and broke a plastic cup that was part of a gift, took the left over cake and smeared it on the walls, and puked in a gift.
the cops were called, they looked at the situation, took the broken plastic cup to see if they could get a print off of it. and told us that they would handing it off to the ann arbor detective unit and to call them on thursday. so yesterday my wife called the detective on her way to work and then detective called me back at home and told me, that they have video tape of the these people being let into the room and had the names of these people. and went on to tell me that it was the other wedding party that was staying in the hotel (their reception was not at the hotel). so i am thinking f'n right these kids are screwed. well today the detective talked to my wife and told her that 4 people are saying that they didn't do it because the groom told them to stay away from the gifts. my wife asked then how do you explain all of our gifts being unwrapped, money taken, gift broken, and the left over cake being smeared all over the place. all the detective could say is that unless they can lift a print off of the broken cup linking one of them, there is nothing they can do right now. because its our word agaisnt theirs and there aren't cameras in that room.
and you would think lifting a print would be easy, but it has to go to the state police crime lab and they are backed up 6 months.
my wife is on verge of losing her mind because of this, 18 months of planning and its amazing how one shitty thing can ruin it all.
and since i know you're all going to ask what ann arbor hotel it is, i will give you a couple of hints because i don't want to say the name:
its at the corner of US-23 and plymouth rd.
there is a big boy across the street from it.
the bar attached has a volly ball court outside of it.
