Melanie Fiona's Wedding Video Is Peak Love And Marriage Goals

"Anything is possible...if you're willing to adjust your perspective."

Celebrity News

Melanie Fiona's pivot from Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter, to mental wellness and self-care mom, has been everything cultivated into what we love to see. She has evolved into the big sister in all of our heads, showing off her adorably-hilarious family, which consists of her fiance, Jared Cotter, and son, Cam.

At the top of the year, Jared and Melanie were scheduled to be married, which due to the pandemic, was rescheduled multiple times. But listen, true love...true love cannot be stopped, m'kay? The couple instead, decided to tie the knot anyway and they commemorated the occasion with the wedding announcement video that made our little, overjoyed hearts flicker for their lives.

Of the video, Fiona said:

"Anything is Possible...✨ If you're willing to adjust your perspective. We had to postpone our wedding three times this year. We had to accept that a full ceremony with our loved ones could not be possible until 2021. But we also knew we wanted to be married this year. So, we made it happen!!! We took what was in our control and saw it through. On 12-12-2020, I married my best friend, in the most perfectly possible way."

Melanie's caption continued:

"Remember, things might not look the way you envisioned, but if you're willing to surrender... to detach from your ideals and expectations, you can joyfully find your way back to the intention. The reason you started in the first place. What you feel, what you see, here, is a reflection of that intention."

Set to the tune of John Legend's "Who Do We Think We Are", the video opens with Cam busting his best celebratory moves and linking up with mom and dad for a stylish family photo shoot.

The couple then enjoy a toast, and fixes the other up to get ready for their big day. As they get into the car, Jared puts into the GPS directions to LA Wedding Chapel, Same Day Marriage.

They vibe and have a blast on the way, which they arrive to, fully masked. After a few shots and signing a little paperwork, the couple get married (and by this time, I'm screaming with tissues!)

But wait, ya'll, it gets better! The newlyweds then head off to the first place in line (you know, because, priorities!)...to get a drank!

"We will for sure have our full celebration/ceremony when we can, but like I said in yesterday's post, the right time to take the right action, is RIGHT NOW. Thank you for all your love and support. We are OVERJOYED."

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
