Episode Three:

We have checked in briefly with all four of our new couples as they are preparing to embark on their honeymoon, overall everyone is pretty happy, so there is really nothing to report. Our two new couples for tonight are Heidi and Mike and Ning and Mark.

Heidi and Mike show an immediate connection at their wedding, the two gush about their mutual attracted and spend the night wrapped in each other’s arm. Even a stormy night couldn’t rain on this couples parade.

Now, this couple seems to be in for a bumpy ride. Ning and Mark meet at the altar and things get off to a terrible start. To ease some of the tension and calm her chattering nerves, bride Ning starts making some ill-timed and poorly delivered jokes which eventually begin to turn off her new husband and his family. Things go from awkward to hostile pretty quickly, and it seems like the pair just wasn’t meant to be. However, after a pep talk from her friends, Ning eventually pulls Mark to the side to explain that she just has her walls up and is afraid of being abandoned. Mark responds kindly, and the ice queen seems to melt, just a little bit. But we will have to wait and see if the couple can fully come back from this rocky start.

Cutest Moment of the Ep:

During his groom’s speech, Mike commends his father for always treating his mother so well, and vows to follow in his stead as he embarks on this marriage. The declaration is heartfelt and very loving.

Most Hilarious Moment of the Ep:

As Heidi is wearing sky-high heels for her wedding day, but unfortunately for her, the ceremony is in the middle of a sandy beach. Watching the young woman try and gracefully walk down the dunes in high heels was hilarious, and oddly endearing.
