Getting married can be stressful (so I’ve heard). There’s so much to worry about — the catering, the outfits, the weather. The last thing any soon-to-be-spouse needs on their wedding day is to be hunting around for lost wedding rings. But that’s what happened to Brett Zongker and Brian Westley on the day of their nuptials. Their rings got swept out to sea during a pre-wedding photo shoot.

Want to find out what became of their wedding rings? Or to hear more stories of love and romance and mushy stuff just in time for Valentine’s Day? Check out this week’s episode of The Big Listen!

Over the course of your life, you’ve probably had at least a dozen email addresses. And I’m going to go out on a limb and say that at least a couple of those have been super embarrassing.
