Thief Steals Wedding Gifts While Couple Celebrates

Updated: Monday, June 9 2014, 07:33 PM CDT

Pictures from their fairy-tale wedding capture the exact moment Taylor and Conner Bell said "I do."

"The sun just filled the space whenever we had the ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful," said Conner.

But an uninvited guest overshadowed the joyous occasion. The newlyweds just didn't know it at the time.

The happy couple just returned home from their honeymoon when they got the bad news. Conner's father called and told him someone had stolen all of the wedding gifts locked inside the family's sports utility vehicle.

"It was weird. That's not normal. It's our wedding -- that doesn't happen," said Taylor.

But it did. The thief broke into the SUV the night of the wedding while the couple's parents slept inside a south Austin Marriott.

"I looked at Taylor held her hands and I told her all of the gifts had been stolen," recalled Conner.

Including antique jewelry Taylor wore on her wedding day. So for now, a wooden table Conner built for their gifts sits empty. But the couple is hopeful one day it won't be.

"We couldn't wait we were excited to open up some presents," added Taylor.
