Ok, here's a shot at it.

The groom is a UPS guy who was driving to his wedding. He was putting the finishing touches on a repair to his buttonhole, which he messed up while trying to put the corsage into, with a brand-new portable sewing machine someone gave him early. The person had teased him, saying "you'll never use this, so I want a picture of the first time you do."

Sewing and driving do not mix, so the light changed when he wasn't expecting it. He ended up breaking hard and skidding off the pavement and nearly into the river.

The explanation of why he was late to his own wedding, coupled with the promise to send a photo to the giver of the sewing machine, resulted in the picture.
