PRIEST surprises the bride and groom he is marrying with an incredible rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah

(Reprinted from The Christian Post)

SonLight Music Ministry had just finished what sounded like a beautiful rendition of “Be Thou My Vision” when Father Ray Kelly again took the mic at the wedding of Chris and Leah O’Kane. But instead of closing the ceremony as planned, the priest unleashed a big surprise for the couple that’s destined for the pantheon of wedding viral videos.

It’s not a joke or a slip-up, but a performance of epic proportions. A backing track mysteriously begins and Father Kelly launches into a rewritten version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” customized just for the new married couple. And this priest has pipes, belting out the melody with ease and even raising the key a whole step.

By the end, the stunned bride is left in tears while members of the audience offer a standing ovation. Father Kelly’s sweet and skillful gesture certainly deserved it.

speech 1

(Reprinted from MSN)

By Brienne Walsh

We know how tricky it is to strike the right balance of sincerity and humor in a wedding toast. Add to that equation two shots of tequila and a few glasses of champagne, and things can go wrong, very wrong. To help you save face (and avoid the wrath of the mother of the bride), we’re counting down the 17 worst things you could say in your speech.

The Rough Start

“When I first met the groom, I didn’t like him all that much.”

The “Gee, Thanks” Quip

“We were beginning to worry that you were never going to get married.”

The Never-ending Story

“I only have a couple pages left.”

The Breakup Crack

“The last time you guys broke up, we were all sure it was over. But look how wrong we were.”

The Anti-Marriage Remark

“To a thrilling lifetime together spent watching thousands upon thousands of hours of television!”

The Downer

“I’m really happy that we’re all here to celebrate today, but I’d like to take a moment of silence to remember the 1 billion people who live in chronic hunger everyday.”

The Memory Best Left Forgotten

“Remember that time in college when we made out?”

The No-Filter Comment

“I know shouldn’t say this, but it’s really great that your husband is so rich.”

The Doomsday Two-Cents

“If it doesn’t work out, I know a really good lawyer.”

The Cheating Tip

“One word of advice: Wait until you have kids before you cheat.”

The Divorce Dig

“May this marriage turn out better than your first one.”

The Ex Mention

“I remember when you said your ex-boyfriend was the love of your life, and I’m happy you found another one.”

The Dagger Compliment

“I honestly don’t know how you snagged this guy. You’re so lucky, I can’t believe it.”

The Big Slip

“Congratulations on the baby! Oh wait, have you started telling people?”

The Show-Stealer

“To my sister, I’m so excited to share some wonderful news with you on such a special day: I’m pregnant!”

The Inappropriate Joke

“May all your ups and downs be between the sheets.”

The Really Inappropriate Joke

“There’s a saying that the length of the best man’s toast is how long the groom will last on his wedding night. (Pause.) Cheers!”

This is How Mr. Spock Would Propose Marriage

The nerdiest proposal ever? Scientist proposes to girlfriend with an  academic paper assessing their relationship

A physicist’s marriage proposal has gone viral after he asked his girlfriend to marry him by presenting her with a scientific paper on their relationship.

The proposal from Australian physicist Brendan McMonigal comes in the form of a heart-warming mock academic study entitled ‘Two Body Interactions: A Longitudinal Study’.

‘The summary of the findings of the study are presented in Figure 1 and that that the project happiness is upward with high confidence,’ it says.

‘Taking these results into account, the author proposes to Christie the indefinite continuation of the study. The subjects response to their proposal should be indicated below.’

The paper features a ‘happiness graph’ and is littered with somewhat unromantic scientific terms such as ‘optimal conditions’ and ‘high level of compatibility’.

The scientist explains the stages of the couple’s relationship from their initial meeting at the University of Sydney seven years ago to the section titled ‘Conclusions’ offering Christie Nelan a Yes/No box to tick.

‘The summary of the findings of the study are presented in Figure 1 and that that the project happiness is upward with high confidence,’ it says.

‘Taking these results into account, the author proposes to Christie the indefinite continuation of the study. The subjects response to their proposal should be indicated below.’

The paper features a ‘happiness graph’ and is littered with somewhat unromantic scientific terms such as ‘optimal conditions’ and ‘high level of compatibility’.

But luckily for Brendan his girlfriend, also a scientist, saw the funny side and loved his geeky proposal so decided to tick the ‘Yes’ box.

Brendan proposed back in March 2012 but the couple are due to marry in May this year.

Speaking to the University of Sydney website yesterday Brendan said: ‘I wanted to do it in a unique way that would be special to us.

‘I had asked her to read over ‘a paper I had been having trouble understanding’ a few days earlier, and after I lured her to the spot we were standing when we met, I got down on one knee to get the paper out of my bag and hand it to her, then I just stood up and waited.’

‘She didn’t notice what was happening at all, but, as a typical physics grad, she read the abstract then skipped straight to the conclusion and quickly realized!’

Christie posted the proposal to Reddit on Sunday and it has since spread like wildfire across the internet being read by thousands.

The paper talks through the couple’s relationship from their initial meeting.

As it explains: ‘This meeting would have been a fleeting interaction as so many two body interactions are, but a high level of compatibility coupled with a high rate of interaction due to similar timetables resulted in a local resonance and eventually a semi-bound state.’

‘Over the course of this phase of the study, the locational dependence of the results was tested across two main long term locations as well as a multitude of short term locations local, interstate, and international.’

‘Additional tests included a two week separation and a surprise (Project Valentine),’ it adds.

If at times the scientific proposal is hard to follow for the lay reader it made perfect sense to the two academics.

The pair met in University where they both studied physics, Brendan majoring in Maths, Physics, Linguistics and Philosophy and Christie in Physics and Ancient Greek.

Brendan is currently a PhD student working on ‘galactic evolution’ with a special interest in ‘General Relativity’ while Christie works with the Questacon Science Squad – a schools science program for children across Australia

Thousands have read the proposal online and more than one thousand joined in the fun, assessing the paper for its scientific merits.

Others urged writers of The Big Bang Theory to adopt the proposal technique for its central character Sheldon Cooper.

‘No control group, inadequate sample size, and unwarranted assumptions about future conditions … but yeah, congratulations,’ one Reddit user wrote.

‘While innovative and emotionally appealing, the submitted paper fails to cite any of its sources and skims over its methodology,” another added. ‘As such, I cannot in good conscience recommend it for publication.’

‘Has it been Peer-reviewed? If not, the results could be bogus. But seriously: congratulations :),’ said another, while one fellow scientist added her appreciation: ‘As a scientist and a lady, this is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. ‘
