This Groom Secretly Planned a Silver Wedding Anniversary Celebration to Surprise His Wife!

Two years ago, both of us initially agreed to have a simple silver wedding with a prenup shoot, but the pandemic happened. We were greatly affected financially and our plans just simply vanished.

In February this year, I thought I could still make the wedding come true with the help of our friends in the wedding industry. My wife and I are full-time professional photographers. I asked my friends if they were willing to support my plan and keep it a secret from her. They gladly offered their services for free, as in everything, from Jeanneth's gown to the cake!

I was looking for a way for her to wear the dress and put on makeup without sacrificing our secret. So, I talked to her and asked if we could have a family shoot on our anniversary instead and she said yes.

After the shoot, I told her that we were going to the Church to have our brand new rings blessed. She didn't know that the guests were already waiting there, including her parents and siblings who travelled from the province to attend our special day.
