We have two videos documenting the day when Sweetie and I tied the knot. It was another lifetime and ten thousand concerts ago. One was graciously shot by my brother, who borrowed a video camera that was about as big as a Buick, and the other was shot by a friend of the family. The grainy, shaky videos are as makeshift and haphazard as the wedding itself was (our ceremony preceded a pot luck reception, if that tells you anything). This clip of "I Do," culled from Jessie James and Eric Decker's wedding, is so not that.

Soundtracked by "I Do," a tune that the new Mrs. Decker penned as a gift to her groom, Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, and first heard on the couple's reality show, Eric & Jessie: Game On, the accompanying footage of their nuptials looks absolutely picture perfect by comparison. Have a look. Although the single, an earnest ballad that meets at a crossroads of Shania Twain and Celine Dion, doesn't appear to have charted yet, it's a safe bet that it will by next summer. Something tells me you're going to hear "I Do" at countless weddings across the country next year. Well played, Mrs. Decker. Well played. It's a gift that will keep on giving -- and one that certainly won't make you cringe some years later.
