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.
How do we honor our dearly departed when they can no longer be with us on our wedding? Having a wedding memorial or two is a heartfelt way of sharing this joyous occasion with them.
When news that Bongbong Marcos had walked Isabelle Daza down the aisle reached our Facebook and Instagram feeds, we all wondered why. Then our collective hearts broke when we saw Bob Nicolas’ SDE, saw how the bride fought to keep her tears at bay. Now we know: Belle’s dad had passed away just months before the wedding. Her wedding memorial was having her dad’s closest friend give her away now that he couldn’t do so himself.
It’s every couple’s dream to have all their loved ones present during their big day. After all, how many of us secretly wished that our own father-daughter dance could be just as epic as in the viral video above? But sometimes we have to say goodbye sooner than we’d like. Here are five ways to help make up for that lost opportunity to have your dad dance to ‘N Sync’s “Bye, Bye, Bye” with you.
Nikki Gil who? It’s Nikki Albert now.
It was last November 21, 2015 when the radiant songstress tied the knot to her college sweetheart. But they have just released their full wedding video and we can’t help but gush over the beautiful film by THE Jason Magbanua. Here’s a rundown of our favorite things about their wedding, which are sure to make you laugh and cry, in equal parts.
