Sometimes, viral videos are the best things on the internet, and this one is definitely a perfect example. Groom Hugo Rohling, who became wheelchair-bound after a motorcycle accident five years ago, enlisted the help of his family to help him stand and finish his first dance with his new wife, Cinthia Zanuni. In the video, the couple starts their dance to Sam Smith’s “Make It to Me,” beginning with a choreographed dance before Cinthia embraces Hugo. Before the song ends, Hugo’s father and brother approach the floor and sit on either side of him while other guests strap their legs together. Once Hugo throws his arms around their shoulds, all three stand to the crowd cheering. Cinthia comes back into the video, kisses her husband and begins to gently sway to the music with him.A guest who shared the clipped on social media said, “ I had the pleasure of participating in this incredible wedding of my friends Cinthia Zanuni and Hugo Rohling in Cuiabá, and I'm going to share this video of what Love is really capable of.”

Ed Sheeran Marries Sweetheart in Secret Winter Wedding
Private moments are the best moments, especially if you’re a celebrity, and that is exactly how Ed Sheeran and his sweetheart, Cherry Seaborn, treated their wedding. It is reported that back in December of 2018, Ed and Cherry held a private and intimate ceremony at Ed’s Suffolk estate, consisting of 40 of their closest friends and family, leaving out celebrities, executives and other big names. The “Perfect” singer and the hockey player met in 2015 and had been engaged since 2017. The singer had been seen wearing a ring himself. He was quoted saying that Cherry had made the ring for him out of silver clay. He also stated that he never understood why men did not wear engagement rings as well, so they were both wearing rings and it meant that no one would no when they got married.
The couple is planning to have a large festival-style party in the summer, where they will invite friends, family and celebrities alike.
