For me this episode was the most highly anticipated moment since I began watching the show. I am a huge Pam and Jim fan, and I think they are so cute together. I have to say I was a little disappointed in this episode though. The writers just went a little over the top with the whole dance scene when the bridal party walks down the aisle. If the scene had lasted maybe a minute it would have been fine, but it just kept going on and on, and it just seemed stupid to me. But the scene where Pam and Jim run away and get married on a boat under the Falls was perfect. I was in tears before long. Also, the toast Jim made during the rehearsal dinner was a tear jerker. Up until he spilled the beans to everyone about Pam’s pregnancy. D’oh. If I had a grandma that uptight, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t invite her to the wedding. Honestly who cares if they got pregnant ahead of time? They love each other and they’re getting married now, that’s all that matters.
Here’s Jim’s speech to Pam at their rehearsal dinner the night before their wedding:
Four years ago, I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, which was to wait. And don’t get me wrong, I flirted with her…I just had little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think that even then I knew that I was waiting for my wife.
