A hilarious video showing a bride texting during the service was posted on YouTube and had about 38,000 views.

The footage shows the bride standing with the groom directly in front of the preacher during the service and she suddenly puts her hand down her chest and pulls out her cellphone.

As the preacher talks of the sanctity of marriage and God’s love, the bride furiously sends a text message.

After the text the bride replaces the cell phone down the front of her dress.

The groom, meanwhile, looks more than just a little embarrassed.

At one point it looks as though he’s going to say something but, hey, it’s the bride’s big day so let her carry on.

Presumably the bride had the phone on vibrate.

The hilarious moment was captured by professional videographer Jim Costa, who uploaded it on YouTube.

Jim Costa wrote: “This is part of a wedding video I shot in August 2008 at the Mission Beach Women’s Club in San Diego, CA. It was otherwise perfectly normal except for this one funny clip of the bride TEXTING just after her dad walked her down the aisle!

“At one point, I noticed her doing it through my lens and I had to pull away from the camera to make certain I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. Totally funny!”

The video has had about 38,000 views on YouTube.

San Diego police has arrested at least two people and used pepper spray yesterday to break up a human chain formed by Occupy movement protesters at a downtown plaza where they’ve camped for a week.

The action started Friday early in the morning, when police began removing about a half-dozen tents after warning protesters their personal belongings couldn’t stay in the Occupy San Diego camp. However, Occupy demonstrators can continue protesting without the tents, tarps and tables, according to authorities.

According to police Lt. Andra Brown, one man was arrested before 8 a.m. for interfering with a police officer after he sat down and refused to take away his tent. After the man and his tent were removed, other protesters erected another tent and formed a human chain around it.

By noon, police officers pulled apart Occupy demonstrators and used pepper spray to disperse them.

According to demonstrators, several protesters were suffering burning eyes from the pepper spray.

One of the protesters, Michael Basillas, a 26-year-old college student, said they were regrouping to make a new plan and many of them had moved to Balboa Park.

Michael Basillas said San Diego Police refused to negotiate with the Occupy protests organizers about the removal orders.

Police said they met with the Occupy protests organizers on Thursday night to tell them they would need to remove their tents to allow the city to prepare for a weekend event at the civic center plaza.

“They chose just to force their way in,” student Michael Basillas said.

On Friday night, Officer David Stafford said that Occupy San Diego protesters remain on the scene, and police officers are there to monitor the situation.

Occupy San Diego protest is in sympathy with Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York and other cities to protest corporate influence on politics.
