At first, I had a bit of sympathy for the parents. After all, who wouldn't feel torn between seeing your daughter married or being there for the birth of your first grandchild? They may not have handled it well, but I thought it was just one of those lousy situations life sometimes throws at you. Even so, I figured the best solution would be to let nature take its course, and the birth actually might be well before or after the wedding date.
But, "wedding," in quotation marks? Not a real wedding? That's a direct slap in the face.
