You may kiss the bride again once the stitches heal

It's an old cliche that people cry at weddings, but I have a feeling that there were a few more tears shed here than at the average nuptials:
A 31-year-old Three Forks man accused of hitting his pregnant sister in the mouth with a wrench during her wedding reception has pleaded not guilty. David J. Sicotte appeared in District Court on Wednesday on charges of assault with a weapon, a felony, and disorderly conduct.

Prosecutors said he arrived at the reception uninvited Aug. 27, pushed his sister's new mother-in-law to the ground and started fighting with the groom. Witnesses said Sicotte later came at his sister with the wrench.
A wrench isn't really the kind of thing one traditionally brings to that kind of event, but perhaps that explains why he wasn't invited in the first place.
