    Gerald Papa and Jenna Buchholtz’s wedding at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster Township, New Jersey received a surprise guest on Friday in the form of none other than the president of the United States. President Trump, who has made a habit out of popping in on occasional summer weddings taking place on his properties, “crashed” Papa and Buchholtz’s wedding and reportedly shook a few hands, posed for some pictures, and even stole a kiss from the bride before he left. “Take good care of them, folks,” Trump told the crowd before giving Jenna Buchholtz a quick peck on the...

    A newly-married couple's choreographed dance from their South Carolina wedding has been viewed nearly 5 million times on Facebook. Lindsay Neeley and Austin Luttrell were married in the city of Anderson on Saturday, with an elaborate first dance that has taken the internet by storm. The video, which lasts over three minutes and is packed with action from beginning to end, was shared by the bride's cousin, Julianne Loven. 'Can we just talk about this first dance though?!,' Loven wrote with the clip, shared in the late morning hours on Sunday, with hashtags '#mycousiniscoolerthanyours' and '#trellyeah.'

    Bowl food is exactly what it sounds like; food in a bowl. We’re not sure what the craze is all about, but it seems to be all over Instagram. And it might have something to do with the royal wedding – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did serve bowl food, after all, when they tied the knot. Their royal lunch included pea and mint risotto, chicken fricassee and a slow-roasted pork belly, served with apple compote and crackling. So what exactly is bowl food and where has it come from? Bowl food is larger than a canapé and about a...

    A baby was born at a wedding ceremony in Nakhon Ratchasima’s Sikhiu district on Saturday to the excited anxiety of many at the event.

Guests expressed shock but did their best to help Nattaporn, who was brought under the shade of a tree and rescue workers were alerted to transfer her to a nearby hospital.

    A state commission in Colorado that punished Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips for refusing to use his artistry to promote same-sex marriage could be eliminated. Future funding for the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, where one member even likened Christians to Nazis, failed in a vote in the state’s Joint Budget Committee. State Sen. Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud, tweeted that the decision came down to a party-line vote that tabled plans to continue sending money to the commission. “My argument against approving their funding today is we need to wait and see what the legislature does with the renewal of the law...

    After living for two and a half years in London, Amber Austin-Wright and David Sciasci were hoping for some sunshine on their wedding day. Their wish wasn't granted - at first - and they were forced to move the outdoor ceremony into a chapel. But as the couple were taking their first photos together as man and wife, something magical happened. A gorgeous full rainbow appeared in the middle of the sky.

    Lines began forming outside the Supreme Court last week for one of the biggest oral arguments of the year, in the case of a Colorado man who says that requiring him to create custom cakes for same-sex weddings would violate his religious beliefs. At the end of over an hour of debate, it became clear that, at least in one respect, the case is just like so many others: It is likely to hinge on the vote of Justice Anthony Kennedy, who initially seemed sympathetic to the same-sex couple but later expressed real concern that Colorado had not been sufficiently...

    Can people of good will believe that LGBT people should not be denied services based on their sexual orientation and, at the same time, support the rights of a baker such as Jack Phillips to refuse to use his creative talents in ways the violate his deeply-held religious beliefs? The answer is yes - because I support LGBT rights and Jack Phillips, too. Eleven years ago, I helped lead a statewide campaign in Colorado to provide basic legal rights to the LGBT community. As a conservative Republican, I took at lot of heat, which I happily accepted — just as...

    PITTSBURGH -- Barb Yavorcik's husband jokes that when he called his mother to tell her they were engaged, she hung up the phone and turned the oven on to preheat. Why? "To bake the cookies for the wedding, of course," she said. In certain parts of the country, particularly in Pittsburgh and Youngstown, Pennsylvania, where the Yavorcik family came from, if you do not have a cookie table at your wedding reception -- actually, several tables ready to greet your guests -- you may as well expect nothing short of a revolt. Or at least lifelong judgment and gossip about...

    Parable of the Wedding Feast by Charles S. Meek Christians are easily inclined to misinterpret the Bible because of their ingrained presuppositions. Even trained theologians are subject to this error. Here’s an example: I recently heard a sermon on the Parable of the Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14). You remember the story. Jesus was discussing the kingdom of heaven and the refusal of those invited to the wedding feast to attend. To make matters worse, those invited killed the king’s servants! The king was obviously greatly perturbed and administered his justice by destroying their city and casting the perpetrators into “outer...

    Amazon Studios head Roy Price — suspended “indefinitely” this past week after being accused of sexual harassment — was about to marry writer Lila Feinberg in four weeks but she has now called off the wedding. Feinberg and Price were to tie the knot on Nov. 12 in a lavish ceremony at The Carlyle on Madison Avenue, but multiple sources confirm that Feinberg — an award-winning playwright and TV writer — has just canceled it. Price was accused of lewdly propositioning Isa Dick Hackett, a producer on Amazon’s hit show “The Man in the High Castle.”

    It's natural for any bride to feel stressed in the run up to their big day but walking down the aisle can often turn women into demanding bridezillas. And one lady, thought to be from the US, believes her sister is the biggest bridezilla of them all - after revealing she made her friends bid in an auction to secure a spot in her bridal party. Writing on Reddit, the 33-year-old dubbed her sister 'self-absorbed' as she revealed the bride-to-be was holding an auction for her potential bridesmaids to compete in for a place in her wedding. The sister explained...

    Weddings can be an expensive business, especially if the couple are tying the knot in an exotic location abroad.  But one woman was left in a state of shock after being invited to a wedding 'week' in the US, costing £5,500 to attend - including five separate events with different guest codes and chipping in for the bride's accommodation the night before the big day.  On top of all that, guests have been invited to pick out a gift from an Amazon wishlist where the cheapest item is a snip at £300.

    A U.S. Marine Corps veteran recovered from an illness to fulfill his goal of being the "something blue" at his niece's wedding in Missouri. Bill Lee Eblen, 92, was a sergeant in the Marine Corps during WWII and a sergeant in the Air Force Korean War, according to Alison Ferrell, Eblen's niece. "When I first I got engaged I knew I wanted to include Uncle Bill in a special way," Ferrell told Fox News. "My family always taught us to have a lot of respect for people in the armed forces. It just seemed like the perfect fit. Eblen was...

    BETHLEHEM, Pa. (CBS/AP) — A man has been cited for disorderly conduct after police say he “freaked out” when he saw a Confederate flag displayed in a Pennsylvania hotel window as part of a Civil War-themed wedding. The (Easton) Express-Times says police charged the man with making the disturbance at the Hotel Bethlehem on Saturday. His name wasn’t immediately released. Police Chief Mark DiLuzio says the man was cited for “freaking out, screaming and yelling” and creating a “very aggressive and disorderly scene.” The flag was flown next to an American flag. The couple met during a Civil War re-enactment...

    Amid the religious liberty cases increasingly heading to the courts, there’s one prominent legal battle that could potentially have some sweeping ramifications: Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. It’s a case that surrounds baker Jack Phillips and his Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado. Phillips, much like Oregon bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein and numerous other wedding venders across the U.S., has found himself in the crosshairs of the government as well as LGBTQ activists after declining in 2012 to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The baker is waiting for the Supreme Court to decide whether to...

    As chief bridesmaid at her best friend’s wedding, Claire Duke knew a certain amount of responsibility and planning would fall to her. What she didn’t imagine was that it would cost her so much money to attend the lavish ceremony that her debt would last longer than her friend’s marriage. Claire’s friend, Siobhan, chose a Caribbean beach setting for her big day four years ago. Claire, 33, a chef from the Isle of Man, says: ‘They wanted us to be there no matter what.’

    A woman who survived a vicious attack by an ex-boyfriend has officially tied the knot with a first responder who helped save her life. In January 2012, Melissa Dohme was rushed to a hospital after her ex-boyfriend stabbed her 32 times in the neck, arms, face and hands. According to her Facebook page, she flat-lined four times at the hospital after the attack. Cameron Hill was one of the EMTs who saved her after the attack. The two met again later that year, in October and went on their first date in December. Hill proposed to Dohme at a Tampa...

    A couple displaced by the Oroville Dam evacuations almost had their Valentine’s Day wedding plans canceled -- were it not for a number of fellow evacuees and Placer County workers who helped put on an impromptu wedding at the evacuation center. Henry Rueda and now-wife Leotta's marriage was 10 years in the making, but Sunday they were forced to evacuate their Olivehurst, California, home for the Placer County Fairgrounds, with about 300 other displaced residents. Authorities ordered people to leave the area when a hole developed in an eroded area of the spillway, raising concerns that the spillway could fail...
