Most single people hope to meet someone they'll marry at a wedding when they have to show up stag, but probably not when they're children.

Fate seems to have decided the course of this North Carolina couple for putting them together as a ring bearer and a flower girl, only to see them wind up married 17 years later in the exact same church.

WBTV has the story:

Adrian Franklin can remember the exact moment when he was told he had to be in a wedding with Brooke. He was only five years old but to him it was like yesterday, "I was devastated. I was like 'tell me I don't have to walk down the aisle with her!"

Seventeen years ago, he was the ring bearer and she was the flower girl in the wedding of a family friend. Brooke, who was also five, said she had the biggest crush on Adrian. He knew it and he hated it.

"We went to school together and I would always try to play with him on the playground and he wouldn't have anything to do with it," Brooke said.

"I was always trying to get away from her and run from her and hide from her," Adrian said.

Boy how things change.

A couple charged a guest for not attending their wedding

Sounds like a match made in triviality.

Jessica Baker was all set to attend a wedding with her husband when she received a call from her mom, KARE11 says.

"She called at the last minute and had something come up and said I can't make it," said Baker.

Her mom was supposed to watch their kids. And since the invitation said no children, that meant no wedding. But then this week, she received a bill for the dinner they were supposed to have enjoyed.

"You've got to be kidding me," she said with a smile. "It listed, we would have had two herb crusted walleye and there was also a service and tax charge."

The total came to $75.90.

"This cost reflects the amount paid by the bride and groom for meals that were RSVP'd for, reimbursement and explanation for no show, card, call or text would be appreciated," the note read.

We're surprised they didn't also ask where their gift was. What kind of petty nonsense is this?

And $30 for a walleye! Those must be some pretty pricey herbs crusted onto it.

Who'd want to be friends with this couple anyway?

This gay couple really pulled one over on a pizzeria. Sort of.

Surely you remember Memories Pizza in Indiana. They were the company that said they would refuse service to any gay couple wanting the restaurant to cater their wedding.

It caused quite a stir. To the point where the pizzeria had to close under a wave of Yelp reviews and protests. Then, they received a healthy bout of funding from a supportive GoFundMe. It brought them almost $1 million, enough to open back up the restaurant and return to healthy, happy business.

Until now.

The description of the video says it all:

On Friday, September 25, 2015, GayCo Ensemble Member Robin Trevino drove to Walkerton, IN. GayCo's current production of 50 States of Gay celebrates the Supreme Court decision which made same-sex marriage the law of the land in the US by choosing a different state out of a hat each week. When Indiana was chosen, Robin decided to have a vow renewal/first legal ceremony in the state where he resides - Illinois. He drove to Walkerton; to Memories Pizza, where he purchased a couple pizzas, froze them in a cooler and brought them home. On Saturday, September 26, 2015 we was married to his husband before a legal officiant. After the ceremony, the happy couple (and their one year old daughter) served Memories Pizza to all their guests. Congrats to Memories Pizza for (unknowingly) catering your FIRST GAY WEDDING!

You know, it's not exactly catering it. But they seemed pleased with the ruse, and their marriage, so good for them.

A chinese bride leaves her wedding photos in progress to give CPR to a drowning man.

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.”
