Groom stops wedding to tell crowd his heart belongs to someone else, and she’s right behind him

Have you ever been to a wedding?

If so, you’re probably familiar with the way things go. All the family gathers, music plays and the loving couple proceeds to the front of the altar. Towards the end of the ceremony, before the couple is joined together, the priest or ordained minister turns to the crowd. “If any of you has reasons why these two should not be married, speak now or forever hold your peace.” Typically, nobody says anything.

In one story out of Portugal, one groom decided to interrupt his own wedding.


The couple in question were Jessica and Jefferson.
The pair were madly in love and the wedding had thus far gone totally as expected. After walking to the front of their church and beginning to exchange vows, Jefferson began his unusual and unorthodox speech. Although he loved his wife dearly, he said that he had a big confession to make.

According to Jefferson, his heart also belonged to another very special woman.


The audience was shocked—until Jefferson turned to eight-year-old Giovanna.
As it turns out, Jefferson’s wife Jessica had a daughter of her own from a previous relationship. Those who grew up in blended families know, any kind of serious change in the family structure can cause communication issues, confusion and insecurity. Even if one’s biological parents are out of the picture, introducing a new parental figure comes with a lot of questions that often need to be addressed.

Fortunately, Jefferson was prepared to do everything he could to be a good husband—and father.

With everyone watching, Jefferson promised to love not just Jessica but Giovanna as well.
Although the original video is in their native Portuguese, the thrust of Jefferson’s speech is this:

“If I could ask God for anything, it would be to have you as my daughter. I would be the proudest father in the world to have such a beautiful, intelligent and educated daughter like you . . . I also give you love, my love, to always take care of you, to always protect you and to not let anything bad happen to you.”


Needless to say, Jefferson’s sincere words left everyone in the room in tears.
Although weddings are a beautiful occasion on their own, Jefferson’s sensitivity and boundless love made this ceremony extra special. Although marriage is often thought of as between two people, it is sometimes much more than that. It sets the foundation for a new family and sometimes means joining two families together.

Congratulations to the bride and groom!

The 40-year-old bride leaves an empty seat for her dead son. But when she sees who shows up at the ceremony, can’t hold back her emotions.

Two years ago, Becky Turney from Alaska experienced the worst day of her life when her son Triston died, aged just 19. But despite the pain, Becky had no choice but to carry on with her life. Two years after her son’s death, she married the man of her dreams, Kelly Turney. Of course, on such a special day, Becky was thinking of Triston with every step she took, and the 40-year-old left a chair empty for her son with the following message:


But the surprise that her boyfriend Kelly had prepared for her that day left her literally speechless.

Minutes before the ceremony began, Kelly said he wanted to introduce her to someone. That someone was 21-year-old Jacob Kilby, who had flow from San Diego just to meet her. When Becky saw him, she immediately burst into tears, because she already knew who he was.


Following Triston’s death, Becky has decided to donate his organs to help people waiting for transplants. This kind gesture allowed five people to go on living. One of them was Jacob who, in October 2015, received Triston’s heart. Becky’s boyfriend had been planning a meeting with Jacob for months, because if he was present on the most special day of their lives, a part of Triston would also be there with them: his heart.


The moment when they met is almost indescribable. Becky could hear her son’s heart beating once more, using a stethoscope. Although Triston was no longer alive, his heart was beating, right there, next to her. She said excitedly, «I lost my mind. I squealed like a little girl. I jumped up and down. It was incredible. I’ve never ever been surprised like that, like ever. I’m the girl who secretly unwraps all the Christmas presents under the tree and puts them back. So for him to pull this off was just incredible.»


Jacob was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and had to undergo surgery three times before his first transplant when he was just two years old. But in 2015, his heart began to deteriorate and, shortly afterwards, he suffered a heart attack. He was put on the list for a transplant, and in October of that year underwent successful surgery to have Triston’s heart transplanted. For Becky, knowing that her son has been able to save the lives of Jacob and four other people, is wonderful. She says, «Everyone has a legacy, but to see how Triston changed Jacob’s life is just incredible. It makes you super proud.»

Kelly hopes this gift for his wife will help others consider organ donation. «It’s the most selfless act you can do for another person. And we would encourage other families of donors and recipients to reach out, because there’s a lot of healing that goes on,» he said. For Jacob, he feels there is a unique connection between a recipient and the donor’s family. «It’s an ever-lasting bond,» said the 21-year-old.


No wonder that, after Becky and Kelly’s wedding, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Losing a son is a tremendous blow to any parent, but thanks to her new husband, Becky was able to have her son by her side on one of the most special days of her life.


And of course, Jacob did not hesitate, not even for a second when he was asked to attend the ceremony. After all, this family had given him a new life. And what started as a sad story has a happy ending, showing there are many ways in which you can have a good heart.

He demands a divorce in letter to wife, but her reply makes him regret every word

In a world that can in turn seem grim, serious or boring, a funny anecdote is always welcome.

I don’t know if you’ve read this before, but if not it should give you a chuckle. And if you have, I’m sure it’ll make you laugh again.

It has all the ingredients of an entertaining story — drama, revenge and an unexpected ending…

It starts with a letter from a husband asking his wife for a divorce. But it’s his wife’s brilliant reply that gets all the laughs. Share it if it also gives you a good chuckle!

Dear wife,

I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. I’ve been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell.

Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw.Last week, you came home & didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps.

You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex or anything that connects us as husband & wife. Either you’re cheating on me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever! the case, I’m gone.

Your EX-Husband P.S. don’t try to find me. Your SISTER & I are moving away to West Virginia together!
Have a great life!

——————————————————-

Dear Ex-Husband,

Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It’s true you & I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you’ve been.

I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping. Too bad that doesn’t work.

I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was ‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment.

And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago.

About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, & ; I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning.

After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me. So take care.

Signed,
Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free!

Please Rasplove this wonderful story if you want to make someone laugh today!

Wedding crasher steals all of newlyweds’ gifts and they open guestbook to see her smiling photo

Marilyn Shuman held her wedding reception at the Sunset Grill at Little Harbor in Ruskin, Florida. The special day was going just as planned.

But during the reception, Marilyn scanned her guests and noticed a woman whom she didn’t even know.

After continuing to stare at the unknown guest, the woman then approached Marilyn and told her she was checking out the the venue on her daughter’s behalf. The woman’s story began to change as she circulated the room; she told some guests she was there “looking for her husband” and others that she was actually invited.

As the reception came to a close, Marilyn and her husband went to collect their gifts — but the table was empty. They assumed a helpful family member already gathered them up.

That’s when Marilyn remembered the mysterious woman. She asked the staff to review the venue’s security tape… and she could not believe what they uncovered next.

The wedding crasher was a thief who pulled off the unthinkable, or so she thought. Luckily for Marilyn, the criminal made one crucial mistake that the newlywed hoped would “seal her fate.”

Nervous bride stares at deaf groom across aisle and he loses it when she lifts her arms to sign

Elizabeth and Scott tied the knot on January 27, 2018, in Sydney. Before exchanging their vows, however, Elizabeth had a surprise for her unsuspecting groom.

The gorgeous bride stopped to take her place across from Scott at the opposite end of the aisle. Suddenly, Christina Perri’s hit song, “A Thousand Years,” began to play in front of their friends and family.

Scott had no clue what Elizabeth was about to do. You see, he began losing his hearing at 5 years old. By the time he was 8, he was deaf.

The pair met on Tinder two years ago, and Elizabeth was so in love that she quickly started learning sign language.

Three months before their nuptials, Elizabeth — a mother of two — secretly taught herself the lyrics and sign language to their special song.

As soon as Scott realized what she was doing, he burst into tears. She says he has watched the video back at least 100 times.

Wedding is interrupted when the groom says he loves someone else, and she’s standing right behind him

Towards the end of a wedding ceremony, the priest or ordained minister usually asks the witnesses, “If any of you has reasons why these two should not be married, speak now or forever hold your peace.” Typically no one answers unless it’s a movie, which usually results in a secret lover of the bride or groom suddenly professing their love.

But in this video of a wedding in Portugal, the groom interrupted his own wedding.

The beautiful couple, Jessica and Jefferson, stood at the alter surrounded by their family and loved ones, and Jefferson began a speech he had prepared for the occasion. He explained that although he loved his soon-to-be wife very much, there was another girl who had also captured his heart, and she was in that very room.

And with tears in his eyes, Jefferson faced the girl he loved.

The audience was shocked – until Jefferson turned around to eight-year-old Giovanna.
Jessica had a daughter from a previous relationship, so she was overwhelmed with surprise when Jefferson suddenly knelt in front of her. Anyone who has grown up in a family blended with children from different relationships and multiple moms and dads knows that it can be difficult to develop a close relationship with someone who isn’t directly related to you. But Jefferson wanted to make sure there was no doubt in Giovanna’s mind that Jefferson wanted to be a good father to her.


With everyone watching, Jefferson promised to love not just Jessica but Giovanna as well.
The original video is in Portuguese, but below is a translation of Jefferson’s promise to Giovanna:

“If I could ask God for anything, it would be to have you as my daughter. I would be the proudest father in the world to have such a beautiful, intelligent and educated daughter like you . . . I also give you love, my love, to always take care of you, to always protect you and to not let anything bad happen to you.”

Jefferson’s speech left everyone in tears, and set a firm foundation for their new family. Watch the video below to see the sweet moment Jefferson gives his speech, and Giovanna’s reaction 🙂

About halfway through the bridal procession, Brittany’s father Todd Bachman suddenly stopped and went over to grab Brittany’s stepfather. The biological father Todd wanted to make sure that both himself and his daughter’s stepfather would walk the beautiful bride to the altar.

A couple of moments later, and both the father Todd as the stepfather literally walked hand in hand to give their blessing to this marriage and give Brittany away, just as if they were always one big family.

Delia Blackburn, the wedding photographer, couldn’t believe what she was seeing. She posted and shared pictures of the beautiful wedding ceremony on her Facebook page.

“Grab tissues… because you will need it as you look through these pictures. Todd Bachman, father of the bride, brought his daughter to the beginning of the aisle…he stopped the procession while people were confused at his actions and he walked up to his daughter’s stepfather.”


“Todd reached out his hand and grabbed Brittany’s stepfather and pulled him down the aisle to walk their daughter down the aisle together. NOT A DRY EYE at the ceremony..including me! Families are what we make them…make it about your kids and not your ego. Congratulations Todd Bachman on showing your kids what true love really is…love for your children. Please share so that we can spread kindness throughout!”

What a fantastic, humble and respectful gesture by Brittany’s father. Both men were seen hugging each other after the ceremony. There is truly nothing that can overcome love.
