For the Ones We Loved (A cause des filles..?)

At a beautiful wedding, the bride and groom exchange the vows they have written. Once outside the church, the newlyweds can’t resist kissing each other as friends and family cheer them on. But there’s a woman in a convertible idling at the end of the steps. Seeing her, the groom shrugs and then races to her and leaps into the car, which speeds away. The startled bride insists that the party continue, and the reception becomes an opportunity for friends and relatives to share their own stories of comically doomed love and failed seductions.
