Wedding on a plane

What’s more romantic than a wedding? A surprise wedding at 30.000 feet, completely planned out by your future husband. Thomas Cook Facebook fan Alexander asked his clueless girlfriend to marry him on a plane. Did she say yes?  This video happened last year but it is so cute and is such a wonderful feel good story I had to share it when I found it.  It seems there was an airline company that offered a free wedding for a couple and their friends aboard their plane. The one catch was he had to ask her to marry him and arrange for the wedding on that flight with her family there.  Alexander said yes and the planning began.  Alexander worked very hard to make everything special for his bride to be and make sure that it would be a day she would never forget.  Can you imagine?  Not many of us could do this and get the result that he did.  What a compassionate man and an understanding a loving woman to accept all he had done and go forward with it happily.  Planning something special for others is wonderful but accepting what someone would do for you is also just as important.

Her Dads Walked her Down the Aisle

For most of her life, Brittany Peck has had two men vying for her love and attention: her father and stepfather.  As happens in many families Brittany’s mom and dad separated and divorsed while she was just a little girl.  Her mother remarried and Brittany came to live with her mom.  Her dad was a truck driver and on the road a lot.  He learned to love her step dad.  As she grew older the two men never liked each other and you could even say barely tolerated each other.  Now Brittany is getting married and she feels torn on her special day.  As her dad was walking her down the aisle he stopped to give her the best wedding present she could ever receive.  He went back to her step dad to get him and said he need to be there to walk “their ” daughter down the aisle.  Her step dad could not believe it.  It touched him so much to be a part of this special day.  They both walked her down the aisle and as they left her you could see the two “DADS” walking arm in arm away.  They both agreed that each played a special part in her life.  Way to go Dads. You two made the right choice and showed everyone how to handle this situation.

A Wedding After 50 years

Do you remember your first love? Unless you are still with them, it most likely ended in heartache. One couple knows this feeling all too well. When they were in college in 1961, Janice and Prentiss fell in love. It all happened fast but they knew they wanted to be together forever. They got engaged and wanted to be married! But Janice’s father had other plans. He forbid the two from seeing each other or he would cut off her tuition. There, in college, they ended their relationship. They both went on to live their lives separately. Though they never lost the love for each other they both married other people. But fate wouldn’t let those last. Years later, Tom found the newspaper clipping from their engagement in his mother’s belongings. Janice found the same clipping in her mother’s things. They both kept it. Unlike Janice’s father, their mothers knew they should be together. This was a beautiful, clear sign they were meant for each other. Decades after they parted, they ran into each other and the rest is history. They never stopped thinking about or loving each other. Now both age 71, 50 years after they met, they finally got married and had the wedding they had waited for. Like the famous saying goes, “It’s better late than never!” They weren’t wasting any more years, they are going to make the most of their time together.”We are so happy. Our marriage is perfect. Of course we have few years to live it, but it will be perfect,” Janice explains of their new life together. Never give up on love.

A Wedding after 50 years

A Beautiful Bride with a Beautiful Song

Everyone invited to a wedding thought this would be your average wedding march played as the bride walks down the aisle with her dad.  Maria Holand Tøsse surprised everyone and especially her beloved one Ronny Eidsvik, when she went up the aisle singing in Alesund Church. As he walked her down the aisle her dad Charles Tøsse topped it all with his singing to the groom. It was all accompanied by great singers and musicians. This is a beautiful gift that the bride presented to her groom and to all in attendance.  He was truly touched as his bride walks down the aisle with her father to her new husband.  What an amazing voice.  This makes her special day even more special for all who were there thinking it was just going to be an average wedding.  But no this was like no other wedding they had seen.  How beautiful is the bride but her gift to her new husband is amazing.  We are so thankful that they shared this with all of us.  I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.

89 year old Bridesmaid

What a great choice for a bridesmaid!!  When Pennsylvania bride Christine Quinn tied the knot in May she asked one of her best friends, “Nana Betty,” to be part of her big day. Quinn told BuzzFeed Life that choosing Nana Betty as a bridesmaid was an easy decision.
“Who doesn’t want her best friend standing beside her on her wedding day? Not to mention all of my friends love my Nana as well, so we all had a great time planning and spending time together,” she told BuzzFeed Life.  Nana Betty wasn’t immediately convinced her granddaughter actually wanted her in the wedding.
“She asked me about 10 times, ‘Are you sure?’ and ‘Why would you want an old lady in your bridal party?’” Quinn told the Huffington Post.  From the wedding photos taken by Sweetwater Photography, it is clear that Nana Betty fit right in with the bridal party.  “Spending the entire day with Nana by my side as I married the love of my life was all I could ask of her,” Quinn told BuzzFeed Life.   Nana Betty even joined the bridal party on the party bus.  What a great day for everyone.  Family is the most important part of a wedding.

Cancer Patient Weds from Hospital Bed

With a little help from friendly hospital staff, a terminally ill man was able to have the “best day” of his life and marry his girlfriend in his hospital room. Keith Borum and Nina Scott were married recently at the Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, New York. Nina Scott, now Borum, said even in the unusual setting she found the wedding perfect. ”The whole thing was great. I don’t know what my favorite moment was,” said Nina Borum. “I couldn’t imagine how great it could be or would be. The staff just outdid themselves … We couldn’t have done it no better.”  Nurses and other medical staff at the hospital helped make the wedding more special by finding people to donate flowers, cake and rings. The couple who have been together for three years were surrounded by friends and family all wearing protective blue medical gowns over their clothes to protect Keith Borum against infection.  Borum has been battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma for about 18 months, according to ABC station WABC. Earlier this year he ended up in the ER due to pain in his abdomen that turned out to be a cancerous mass. ”He’s been really going through so much and he can’t walk,” said Nina Borum. “It’s hard on him. He’s really hard…It’s just sunk his spirit.” But on his wedding day Keith Borum was able to lighten the mood by stealing his new wife’s sunglasses. Sitting in his hospital bed Keith Borum told WABC that in spite of his terminal diagnosis he was enjoying “the best day of my life.”

They had big plans until August 20th 2014 just 19 days after the wedding. Justice was traveling just down the road to her aunt’s house and to meet Jeremy when he got off work when it happened. She was rearended at a dead stop at about 50 MPH plus. She was nearly killed in the impact but by the grace of God she survived.  About a month after the accident she finially told her husband “I don’t want you to be mad….but I do not remember the wedding.” He said hewould do it all again for her. She has memory loss from about 5 weeks before the wedding. She didn’t even know they were married. He is now raising money to give her the wedding she will never forget for their first anniversary in August.  What a wonderful gift to the woman he loves so much.  Currently they have raised over $8,800. http://www.gofundme.com/thestamperwedding.  Mr. & Mrs. Stomper…. have a great time at your wedding Round 2.

Seeing Triple at this wedding

Identical triplets Rafala, Rocheli and Tagiane Bini have shared everything over the years — their birthday, looks, and similar tastes. And now they can add a wedding day to that list. Yes, that’s right — the 29-year-old triplets from Brazil all got married on the same day. They even all wore the same wedding dress and hairstyle. Rocheli said, “We tried a number of styles, but we all liked the same one. It’s not even worth trying — it always ends up like that.” Their varying bouquet colors were the only way you could really tell the girls apart.

Their father, Pedro, had a dilemma when trying to figure out how he would walk all three girls down the aisle.  After  he thought about it for a while he said, “We decided that we would all walk down the aisle until halfway down the church. From there, I would take one at a time.” This way he could have this special moment with each of his daughterson their special day.   We bet Pedro’s glad to have saved on paying for two more weddings!

His vows are inspiring

Weddings are always special.  Two people coming together to share their life forever. Sometimes this union includes children.  This is a story of a  NASCAR driver, Brian Scott made a special vow to his 3-year-old stepdaughter during his wedding recently.  This is a special time for the couple, their families and friends.  Those that were there were touched by the emotion of his promise, not only to his new wife, but to her little girl (his new step-daughter).  The love he shares with this woman and her little girl is so amazing.  How wonderful for him to share this special day and include this little girl in his promise for the rest of his life.  What a joy to this new family to see the love this man has for this woman and little girl.  I don’t know much about Nascar but I have a new respect for this guy.  Thank you for sharing your special day with us and thanks to Patricia M for finding this great story and sharing it with us.
