Dressed in her wedding gown, celebrating with family, a call of distress pulls a heroic bride into action.

A 25-year-old newly married woman was taking her wedding photos on a beach when a drowning man was pulled from the ocean.

According to the Daily Mail:

About 100 feet away, Guo Yuanyuan, who was a cardiac nurse at a local hospital, happened to be shooting her wedding photographs on the same beach.

Without thinking, she jumped off a three foot ledge and rushed to the scene while still wearing her wedding gown.

She then proceeded to perform CPR on the man as well as giving him mouth to mouth resuscitation for over 20 minutes.

In the process of saving the man, Guo had ruined her wedding dress, spoilt her make-up and broke her nails.

Very sadly, she was not able to save the man's life.

When paramedics arrived on the scene, they declared the man dead and said the cause was a heart attack.

The Daily Mail quotes Guo about the event:

"At that time, I only remember that I was a nurse. My career's responsibilities are higher than that of a bride."

A rowboat capsized after a man proposed to his girlfriend.

This might not be the best way to begin an engagement...

A dragon row boat capsized Sept. 20 after a man proposed to his girlfriend, tossing 19 people into New York City's East River. They all had to be rescued by emergency services. Thankfully, everyone's fine.

As The Gothamist writes:

Officials say the boat was capsized by a succession of wakes from larger vessels passing nearby, not from the emotional turbulence that inevitably batters every couple who commits to spending their entire lives together in this f*cked up world, so there's no need to see this as a metaphor for their impending nuptials or the institution of marriage in general. But even if it is A Sign, everybody on board survived, so the takeaway is obviously that when you prepare for life's vicissitudes and wear a life preserver everything will be just fine!

Even without the surprise swimming, that can't have been too romantic of a proposal. I mean, those boats are crammed full of people trying to row their little hearts out. So, it's not like you could find privacy or even a moment's peace to look each other in the eyes, contemplating your future.

Those people look pretty cold after their rescue.

But she said yes! So, the day wasn't ruined for at least two of those people.

When he found out a wedding shoot and the Philly Naked Bike Ride were happening on the same weekend, photographer Joe Gidjunis had a brilliant idea—why not combine them?

Couple Blair Delson and Ross Cohen agreed to the idea, and they got these amazing wedding photos.

"They were a little hesitant at first, but not opposed to the idea," Joe told the Huffington Post . "By the time the wedding day came, they became more open to it happening, but they also didn't want to go looking for the bikers. If it happened, it happened."

Oh, it happened all right.

In case some of the bikers didn't want their privates being shown to the entire world, the photographer decided to darken some of the more sensitive regions.

"All of this was hysterical," Joe said. "And it took place in less than three minutes."

This is certainly a dance that they will never forget, mainly because there’s hardly any dancing involved.

Jim Mickunas wanted to do something special for his daughter Kandice on her wedding day, so he turned their father/daughter dance into a game of catch.

“My daughter has always found her own path,” he writes in the video’s caption, adding that she played a lot of sports as a kid. “I could not imagine having a traditional father daughter dance with her. That is not what we were or are. So I came up with this.”

The moment starts out as you might expect, with the two on the dance floor and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” playing in the background.

But then her dad stops away as a man hands them both baseball gloves and the music suddenly changes to John Fogerty’s “Centerfield.”

And with that move Jim becomes MVP and father of the year.

He also eventually subs in his new son-in-law.

“I had no idea he had it planned,” Kandice said. “Made me tear up when he handed the glove to my husband.”

Early this year, Rowden and Leizl decided to get married on July 8, 2014, Rowden's 30th birthday. Together with their adorable 2-year-old daughter, they already had a perfect family.

Then a twist of fate, Rowden got diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer in late May. His last request was to marry his one true love. After 12hours of preparations, his dream was fulfilled. Unable to take him outside the hospital, we brought the church to him. It was like a heartbreaking fairytale.

Rowden Go, at the age of 29-years-old, passed away on June 11, 2014. Less than 10hours after he said his vows.

He is survived by his wife Leizel May, daughter Zakiah Rowzel, mother Lorelei, and brothers Hasset & Hisham.
