A bride’s wedding day is said to be one of the happiest days in her life, and this holds true for her groom as well. When this engaging couple tied the knot several years ago, there was hardly a dry eye at the ceremony. True love knows no bounds!
Mara, a beautiful young lady, fell truly in love with Elo, a rather short guy who suffers from dwarfism. With their enduring love for each other and wish to spend their lives together, they planned to be married.
The wedding ceremony of Elo and Mara was perfectly captured by videographer Jason Magbanua and has been viewed on YouTube thousands of times since.
It is a reminder to us all to look past the surface of a person, for what matters is what is on the inside.
Elo and Mara’s wedding vows touched many hearts.
The couple got married in 2012 at St. Andrew the Apostle Parish in Makati City. The ceremony was an emotional affair with the most heartrending vows. It was then followed by a reception held at The Peninsula – Manila.
Tearfully repeating his vows to Mara, Elo said: “You know, I had a lot of questions for God. Why? Why me? I didn’t get the answers then, but now that you’re in front of me, I realize that you are the answer to all of my questions…to all my prayers… and much, much more.”
“Who would have known that an imperfect Elo, would be chosen by a perfect Mara. Thank you Lord,” Elo added.
Mara replied: “I will love you, forever as the day more. Nothing is more important for me than our love for each other. And I feel so blessed and grateful, that you loved me despite my imperfections, always seeing the gold in me even if I reflect silver.”
“I believe I’m the helpmate God designed especially for you. And I promise to be the arms that you need to reach your star, and the legs that you need to take too big steps. My arms and legs are made to be the extension of yours,” she said.
The officiating priest summed it up when he said, “It’s all about love.”
The touching video show family and friends emotional and happy; their support and love they feel for the couple is clearly visible.
The video has also inspired social media users on the meaning of true love, who have left heartwarming comments for them.
One user wrote: “True love does not come by finding the perfect person, buy by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. True love exist.”
While another wrote, “Everything was just so true and pure! I’ve never felt this feeling before when I watch wedding videos, I really felt the TRUE LOVE! My tears kept on falling right from the start to end! This was so beautiful!”
To complete their inspiring love story, in 2014, Mara and Elo were blessed with a beautiful healthy son, whom they named Liam. Their little kiddo is sure to bring more joy to the couple’s relationship.
