Weddings have long been touted as the bride’s special day. In many ways, this is true — she’s doted on by her bridesmaids and all eyes are on her as she walks down the aisle….
But when Gabriel Deku saw his bride coming down the aisle at London’s St Martin-in-the-Fields, he simply couldn’t look at her longer than a few seconds.
Even when she stood right next to him, the man was so overcome with emotion that his best man had to tell him that this was really happening — he was marrying this incredible woman.
This is probably one of the sweetest things you’ll ever see.
Guys, I’m not crying…YOU’RE crying.

Their love can survive anything.
1. After Chris Love and Kara Kyser got engaged at Comic Con last fall, they decided to have a little fun with their engagement photos.

“We’re both geeks,” Love, 35, told BuzzFeed Life. “Kara is a gamer and cosplayer. I’m more a movie geek, I guess, and dabble in the realm of cosplay too. Between the two of us we hatched the idea of this post-apocalyptic theme — nukes, not zombies — from our mutual interests.”
2. The Kansas City couple hired photographer Joshua Hoffine to shoot their photos. Here’s how they turned out…
“The video game series Fallout is one of my favorites,” Kyser, 25, told BuzzFeed Life. “I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of a post-nuclear fallout and the resourcefulness of people surviving it.”
3. “We thought it would be fun to kind of tell this story where we got married, but then the fallout happened, but it’s OK because we managed to survive and are still rocking our wedding day attire,” she said.
4. Hoffine photographed them at Missouri’s Belvoir Winery, which is the site of an old orphanage and nursing home and is rumored to be haunted.
As for their attire and props, Love said the tuxedo belonged to his grandfather and the wedding dress came from his sister-in-law. They rented the guns and ammo from a shop called Have Guns, Will Rent, which he said “exists in the shadier part of KC.”
5. Love and Kyser, who will be married this September, are thrilled with how their photos turned out.
“Probably the best pictures either of us have been in,” Love said.
6. “So many people have told us how cool it is we went with something different from the standard â€˜cuddling with each other in a grassy meadow’ engagement shoot,” Kyser said.

Disney always releases interesting products for the sake of entertainment (and money, of course). So it’s no wonder they’re looking to cash in on girls who grew up singing along to every Ariel, Jasmine, and Belle song in the Disney catalog. And there’s no better way to do this than by finding a way into a $51 BILLION wedding industry in America.
Disney recently unveiled a cake mapping technology with the ability to make your cake the envy of every person in the room.
It will also make every eligible bachelor quiver with fear.
We hope you both live happily ever after.
Disney patented this technology in 2012, making the dreams of every girl possible.
I don’t know if I would want to have a Disney wedding. I’m also aware that I wouldn’t have the final say as a groom. I suppose I could appreciate a Lion King cake if I had to.

Burn! Update: The author told BuzzFeed News what pushed her to write the invitation.
1. So you’re planning your perfect wedding, but your estranged parents are begging for an invite. What do you do?
Alyssa Pearce had just this situation, telling BuzzFeed News she suffered “physical, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of two people who were supposed to love and cherish me,” and was then being “bullied” to invite them to her upcoming wedding.
The 23-year-old wrote about the situation in a Reddit post from five months ago that went viral this week.
3. And so she gave them what they wanted: an invite.
An invite to suck it, that is.
5. Pearce, who is getting a Ph.D. in applied linguistics, was inspired to write the invitation after a family member harassed her to invite her parents, and she said she “snapped.”
“So I went home and wrote my parents the de-invitation. I opened up a Word document, found the nicest calligraphy font I could, loaded up the printer with some of the lovely parchment paper left over from the other invitations, and wrote,” she said. “I then found a nice matching envelope, addressed it with a fancy gold pen, and posted it. I mean, if you’re going to send someone a memorable â€˜stuff you,’ you’ve really got to put in some effort. You may as well go all-out.”
7. In an update on Reddit she added, “The aisle is only wide enough for one awesome person, so I’ll be walking myself down.”

Most people plan weddings and hope the event goes off without a hitch. More often than not, there will be a handful of hiccups… but usually those hiccups aren’t large-scale, dangerous wildfires. When Michael and April Wolber were about to get married at Rock Springs Ranch in Oregon, a group of firetrucks pulled up. The Two Bulls wildfire was close to their location and headed straight for them.
Instead of letting the bad news ruin their wedding day, the couple just zipped through their vows.
As firefighters carefully watched over the event, the group sped up the wedding.
It was still a beautiful ceremony.
Even if there was a hint of danger.
Josh Newton, their photographer, made sure to take pictures of both the ceremony and the fire in the background.
After they said “I do,” the newly married couple and their guests rushed off to a safer location.
Now, the wildfires are still burning on more then 6,800 acres.
Luckily, the Wolbers were still able to have an outdoor ceremony they’ll never forget.
This couple’s romance will be on fire for a long, long time.
(H/T BuzzFeed) Their photographer captured some truly stunning photos from the wedding. Most people dread rain on their wedding day, but April and Michael were able to take a massive wildfire in stride. Now that’s the sign of a marriage that’ll last!
