The Stanley Cup crashes a wedding at Disney World
What's better than a fairy tale dream wedding at Walt Disney World?
Um, how about a fairy tale wedding at Walt Disney World that features the actual Stanley Cup? Yeah, you know, like Lord Stanley's himself, or better yet, the one Alexander Ovechkin has been celebrating everywhere with lately. You know the one.
But before Ovechkin got his hands on the legendary trophy, it made a stop at Emily and John's nuptials. The Chicago-based couple met while playing on opposing teams in a recreational hockey league -- she scored the game-winning goal during their first meeting, naturally -- and the sport has played a pivotal role in their relationship ever since. John, a lifelong Disney World fanatic, always knew he wanted to get married at the legendary theme park, and Emily agreed.
Saying their vows at the China Pavilion in the World Showcase at Epcot Center to celebrate John's Chinese heritage, the two appear on tonight's series premiere of "Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings" (8 p.m. ET on Freeform). While they did all the planning for their big day, they were surprised (OK, more like astounded) by the appearance of the Cup. Their reaction to seeing it when they walked into their hockey-themed reception is worth tuning into alone.
Note to everyone getting married this summer: The bar has been set. I am now expecting a trophy from a professional sports league to be at every wedding that I attend.
