Caleb and Maggie were madly in love and they were more than ready to finally tie the knot. However, after weeks and months of planning, nothing could have prepared them for what the bride found out at the altar that left her to loose consciousness. After everything they had been through, they truly hadn't expected this. Think about it, what could be the worst thing that could happen on your wedding day? Is it an unruly guest, or the possibility that the band might not show up? Well, if your groom had whispered a secret to you while at the alter, would you have passed out like Maggie did?
It was pure chance that the videographer took the video of the exact moment she passed out. However, when the video went viral, Maggie and Caleb were puzzled.
The story leading up to her fateful wedding day is pretty amazing. You see Caleb and Maggie had been friends for a very long time. They were both from Asheville, North Carolina, and they had been friends in high school. They had similar friends, meaning that they were around each other pretty often. Since they had grown up in the same circle of friends, they got to experience every bit of high school together. From high school pep rallies, homecoming, finals and even prom.
Of course, Maggie had thought about the possibility of dating Caleb since they had so much in common and were such good friends... but it just never seemed like something that would ever happen! They were constantly asked by everyone why they did not date in high school.
Even though the pair might not have seen it at the time, many people thought that there was some potential for these two to finally get together. However, it wasn't until after high school had ended that the pair took notice. They had crossed paths after high school and decided to give it a try since they had so much history together and had been such great friends. But when initially came to the wedding day Maggie found out a secret about Caleb that she couldn't ignore....
You see Caleb Had been saving up every penny he had. Working long hours leading up to the big day. He was saving for something EXTRA special that he could do for his future bride...even more than a big beautiful ceremony. Maggie had been the front running in planning the ceremony and he wanted to do something special for her that she would never forget.
It was killing him that he couldn't just tell her the surprise he had in store. But what would be the fun in that? He wanted to tell her on their wedding day! And that day finally came!
There they were in front of family, friends, and God...showing the world their love for each other. While at the altar Caleb felt like he was going to burst! He just couldn't take it anymore. He leaned over and what Maggie though was going to be an innocent kiss on the check he whispered to her, "I have a surprise for you....we are going to Fiji right after the vows are over with". He leaned back as if he didn't just drop a bomb on her insides.
10 seconds went by where Maggie just kneeled at the altar stunned. Then all of the sudden, overcome with emotion and shock, she passed out! Caleb couldn't believe it! His bride where he had done so much planning and preparation for just passed out at the altar!
Well this story has a happy ending after all because after the videographer stopped filming Maggie came to shortly after. She had absolutely zero injuries whatsoever. They went onto the ceremony and eventually Fiji just as planned!
Looking back... Caleb knows that he should have waited to tell her..but what is the fun in that? 🥰
