Alvord, the groom, was taking wedding photographs on the beach when another man intervened in the pictures. Alvord allegedly offered the man $50 to move out of the way so that the pictures could be taken. The man refused to move, however, and Alvord punched him in the face, breaking his nose. Alvord told officers that the man was belligerent and threatening, causing him to throw the punch in self-defense. The victim, however, told officers that a groomsman held him while Alvord committed the attack.
Alvord was held in jail overnight before being released on Monday. His wedding took place after he was out of custody.
