What first caught my eye in Anne and Erwan’s beautiful wedding video by Jason Magbanua were not the lush rolling hills of New Zealand, or the bunch of good looking people that surrounded the happy couple. It was a sign shown a little past 1:00 mark that said: “Welcome to Middle Earth.”
If you know of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit (books or movies), this reference wouldn’t be lost on you and it somehow leaves us with a feeling that Anne and Erwan are just about to start on the greatest adventure of their lives.
Anne did say it in her wedding vow, but even without it, it’s very easy to see why that is so –love and marriage is a lifelong quest that the husband and wife promise to embark on together. And while there were no orcs, hobbits, elves, or wandering lost kings in the video, here are four things that prove that saying (or singing!) “I Do” in front of God can be the biggest adventure of anyone’s life.
