Who doesn't tear up at a good wedding vow? Centerpieces, stationery, and guest list aside, nothing compares to the giggles and happy tears that surface during a wedding ceremony. And nobody does wedding ceremonies quite like Hollywood.
So, let's all stop and give thanks to Youtube channel Burger Fiction for mashing up the most epic wedding ceremonies the movies have given us. In four minutes flat we go from Night at the Roxbury to one of our absolute favorites Princess Bride (don't tell us you don't think "mawiage" every time you think of that movie). With Hollywood in mind we did a little rounding up of our own. All jokes aside, the video inspired us to rehash our favorite wedding ceremonies from movies and TV that still get us every time.

Friends: Monica and Chandler
Even though the groom's presence at the wedding was touch-and-go the morning of, Monica (Courtney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry)'s wedding vows showed that friendship can easily blossom into something more. Even if it includes a groom panic attack a few minutes before the big reveal.
Monica says, "Then three years ago, at another wedding, I turned to a friend for comfort. And instead, I found everything that I'd ever been looking for my whole life. And now here we are with our future before us, and I only want to spend it with you, my prince, my soul mate, my friend. Unless you don't want to. You go!"
Chandler says, "Monica, I thought this was going to be the most difficult thing I ever had to do. But when I saw you walking down that aisle, I realized how simple it was. I love you. You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with."
Runaway Bride: Maggie & Ike
Having a history of escaping the final moments before she was due down the aisle, Maggie (Julia Roberts)'s heartfelt vows were kept sacred during her final trip down the alter to Ike (Richard Gere).
Maggie says, "Look, I guarantee there'll be tough times. I guarantee...at some point one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But, I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it the rest of my life. Because I know in my heart...you're the only one for me."
Sex and the City 2: Anthony & Stanford
If opposites attract, these two couldn't be more different (but perfect) for each other. The gentlemen tied the knot in a glam wedding ceremony, complete with white swans, a choir, and Liza Minnelli of course. And their vows were nothing short of endearing.
Anthony says, "It was not exactly love at first sight. But it turns out, it was love. You are the first man to accept me...for the man that I actually am."
Paige: "I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not, to agree to disagree on red velvet cake, and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home."
Leo: "I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other."
If those words don't have you reaching for the tissues, consider yourself a wedding Scrooge! If you're planning on writing your own, check out our tips to writing unforgettable vows.
