Bride wades through flooded church aisle in aftermath of monsoon

Monday, August 13, 2018

Bulacan, Philippines -- A wet monsoon season in the Philippines failed to stop one young couple from exchanging vows in a flooded church over the weekend.

On the big day, Jobel de los Angeles left her family home in Sagrada Familia, lifted up her white dress and waded through ankle-deep water to reach the Santo Rosario Parish Church to marry Jefferson, the father of her two children and her partner of seven years.

The 24-year-old bride told the AFP that she took a boat to the church after a taxi refused to take her.

The groom can be seen wearing flip-flops with his suit.

The video was taken by the bride's aunt, Teresa Halipot.
