- When Jenny Ly ended her engagement to her boyfriend of five years, she was left with a $5,000 wedding venue contract, which she was unable to get out of. The 25-year-old full-time student from Long Beach didn’t want the money to go to waste, so she decided to put the Clubhouse of the La Mirada Country Club in Santa Fe Springs to good use: by holding a fundraiser for cancer.

- In a small town tucked into a valley, songs from a local band heralded a religious wedding that had remained out of reach for decades. The band, whose name translates to “The Forever Young Friendly Band,” was aptly named to play for 75-year-old Pablo Ibarra and 65-year-old Francisca Santiago, who finally married in the church after nearly a half century together. The couple first met in 1967 while tending goats in the fields outside Santa Ana in the southern state of Oaxaca. Soon, Ibarra asked Santiago to marry him, but with a catch. He wanted her to accompany him to Mexico City for three years while he worked as a security guard at construction sites around the capital: [ABC News]
- This groom and groomsmen surprised his bride with the most HILARIOUSLY choreographed dance you’ve ever seen at a wedding! The DJ pretended to be setting up a newlywed game to pass the time, and the bride was completely taken off guard and had no idea what was going on (video by Miranda Marrs Photography):
