White wedding: Nashville couple marries on bridge in snowstorm

The Facebook plea, posted on the morning of Friday's snowstorm, read like this:

okay longest shot ever

my fiancé and I have planned to get married today on the pedestrian bridge

just happened to snow

anyone have a fur coat she can borrow? we will come get it. ‪#‏thisweddingishappening‬

And so it did.

After more than 800 likes and almost 200 comments offering coats and well wishes, Jessica Reed and John Pyle stood on Nashville's pedestrian bridge and said their wedding vows in the biggest snowfall to blanket the city since 2003.

Reed's cowboy-boot-covered feet sunk into the shin-deep snow as she walked. She clutched a bright bouquet of grocery store flowers between her frigid, gloveless fingers. And over her shoulders, she wore an elegant off-white cover, a 1920s wedding gift to a couple who was married over 50 years. The perfect accessory for an unexpectedly white wedding.

"A day to remember," Reed says.

Jan. 22 just seemed right. It was the date they first met one year ago. They wanted to declare their future together while overlooking the city they both loved.

The prospect of snow seemed easily surmountable at first. Early forecasts predicted it wasn't expected to start until midday, and they planned to marry around 3 p.m before it got too bad.

But Friday morning, it was clear the weather wasn't going to cooperate.

That's when Pyle posted his plea to the East Nashville Facebook page and their neighbors, all huddled in their homes, showed their heart.

"It's just so neat to see everyone come together and take care of a couple just because they love each other and want to get married," said Callie Ann Starkey, the close friend who officiated the wedding. "The city just kind of rallied behind it."

It was a younger woman, a stranger, who dropped off the fur. With its delivery, she helped fulfill the traditional rhyme about old and new, borrowed and blue — a saying that is supposed to bring a bride good luck on her wedding day.

The young woman also brought something else to Reed "the silver sixpence in her shoe."

The coin sat at the bottom of her boot as she and Pyle joined hands at the crest of the bridge Friday afternoon, the white haze of the city behind them.

I John choose you, Jessica, he said. They started with a prayer, and then, with snowflakes swirling around their heads and clinging to Pyle's long brown beard, they said their vows.

I choose to give you my whole heart. With abiding courage and faith. I choose to laugh, cry and grow with you. To respect, encourage and support you. I choose our unconditional love.

I choose our forever.

Even in the middle of thundersnow, love wins.

Love Story

Baileys Nigeria and BellaNaija Weddings‘ enchanted event on 10/10/2015 still have us smiling from ear to ear, and we smile even harder when we see the brides-to-be are now married.

We loved meeting the 33 beautiful, accomplished and unique #BBNWonderland brides from all over Nigeria, and we are happy to celebrate with them on their weddings.

#BBNWonderland bride Sheila and Edikan‘s paths started crossing 14 years ago through work and their personal lives, but they didn’t get to meet until over a decade later. Edi sought Sheila out on social media, and within a year, they had started planning their lives together – and as of December 2015, they are One.

The bride Sheila is a creative soul, as a singer, saxophonist, writer and spoken word poet, she performed at her wedding, alongside her husband (she calls him Keys) who played the piano. It was an intimate musical wedding day filled with genuine friends, laughter and tears of joy. She looked divine wearing Nigerian designers – a white low back wedding dresses by James Brendan of JB Living and a custom April by Kunbi reception dress, a prize she won at #BBNWonderland.

The wedding was also beautiful in its diversity as the bride is from Anioma (Delta-Igbo), while Edi is Ibibio from Akwa Ibom.

BellaNaija Weddings and Baileys Nigeria wish #EdiSheila4Ever the best of love and life.

The Love Story The story of Edikan and Sheila dates back 14 years, they didn’t start dating 14 years ago but the first time Edikan heard of Sheila was in 2000 when a good friend of his was head boy at his secondary school and talked a lot about the head girl who was smart and socially inept. Edikan showed up at Sheila’s school a few times hoping to meet this Sheila girl that was helpful but never got to meet her.

Over the next 14 years, Edikan would come across Sheila’s rarely updated blog, meet mutual friends who would mention her, work on a project where a certain Sheila was offering backend support, show up at a video shoot for a mutual friend where a supposed Sheila bailed last second so he never got to meet her.

In September 2014, Sheila showed up on Edikan’s Instagram explore page and for some reason she stuck out like a sore thumb. Without giving it much thought, he went through all her pictures at the time as she was also promoting a few events that she was scheduled to perform as a spoken word artist.

By November 2014, after weeks of trying to get Sheila’s attention on Instagram, Edikan reactivated his Facebook account just to search for her. When Sheila accepted his friend request, he then felt a need to let her know why he was ‘showing up’ everywhere so he sent a message that said, “Pardon my cyber stalking ways. I find you really interesting”.

'Telenovela' Eva Longoria's Wedding Dress To Be Designed By BFF Victoria Beckham?

Has "Telenovela" star Eva Longoria already decided on beach wedding dresses online designer, BFF Victoria Beckam?

Longoria, who recently became engaged to longtime love Jose Antonio Baston, revealed that although she thinks the idea is great, she hasn't officially "talked" to Beckam about taking on the ultra-important job.

"I don't know," revealed the actress in an interview published in People Magazine.

"I haven't given it one thought, but it is in the news that she is. I haven't even talked to Victoria about it."

On the heels of reported collaboration, the designer's PR seconded this statement to People remarking, "Victoria Beckham does not produce vintage wedding dresses australia and has no current plans to expand the collection to include bridal wear."

Longoria has been married twice before, to actor Tyler Christopher and basketball player Tony Parker.

Since she has been wed before, the actress revealed that she would be perfectly okay with just running off and getting married with Baston, without all the fuss surrounding a large wedding.

During an appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show," Longoria remarked, "I'm advocating for eloping. I don't know if I'm going to get away with that though."

"I had no memory of meeting him the first time, but we had immediate sparks," revealed Longoria of her fiancé to People.

The second time she met Baston, she says, "It was like the cliché angels singing and there was a glow around him and it was immediate chemistry."

Baston is a father of three children.

"I want to yell from the highest mountaintop about everything that goes on with us because I'm so happy and excited to be with a person as kind as Pepe is," revealed Longoria of the duo's relationship.

"He is probably one of the first man I've dated that has been older and established and, basically, a grown-up. It is so nice to be arm-in-arm with someone who is your equal," the actress and businesswoman remarked.

"Telenovela" airs Mondays at 8:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
