Twenty-four-year-old Kolbie Sanders called off her wedding just one week before the big day, but instead of letting all the hard work and preparation go to waste, she decided to do something special for one lucky couple. She partnered with the wedding venue and called out to brides-to-be on Facebook to enter for a chance to take over their spot. The only catch was that they had to be ready to get married that weekend. 

Kolbie read everyone's stories, did a Facebook Live drawing and picked 22-year-old Halie Hipsher. Now, Just a few days before the wedding, Halie and her fiancee Matthew Jones join us at RTM to talk about their experience and upcoming wedding! Kolbie's story is inspiring so many people, because she was able to turn her heartbreaking situation into something so positive for someone else.

We see a ton of proposal videos here at RightThisMinute, but this very clever idea is a new one! One of the added stresses of getting engaged is making sure the ring is totally perfect and exactly what your future bride would want.

Seth and Nicole's relationship has literally been on the rocks since the start. But they like it like that! Both outdoors junkies actually met on a canyoneering trip in Moab, Utah. Because of a newbie rappelling error, Nicole almost fell to her death. Miraculously, Seth was on the other end of the rope. A year after she literally landed in his arms and the two began dating, Seth and Nicole are back at the same cliff. Can you guess what comes next?

Determined Bride Walks Again At Her Wedding

Such strength and beauty! We're completely inspired hearing Amanda and Frank's story which started with a regular beginning of a relationship to the couple suddenly dealing with a cold that turned into a two month coma and septic shock from an infection. Unfortunately, her legs and hands had to be amputated in order to save her life. Frank stuck by her side though through thick and thin, and Amanda was able to walk herself down the aisle on her wedding day and dance the night away. via BBC News View Now

Whether they're out in the snowy mountains to set off a colorful smoke bomb or letting their hair dye clue them in. Congrats to both families.  First video via Noah Couser's YouTube and Instagram.

Hey, I'm Swampin' Here! & Born An Hour Ago, Already Walking

If we saw a crocodile hanging out in our favorite watering hole (yes, we have a favorite for the purposes of this scenario) we'd happily choose a new watering hole. Elephants, on the other hand, nobody tells them to go somewhere else. The adult elephants have a problem slight pushing the crocs away so the calves can play in the water in peace. View Now

Some people can play the electric guitar, some people can play the saxophone, but Kenny Urban? He's rocking out on the recorder. Yes, the annoying little plastic "instrument" we were forced to play in elementary school. He also has impeccable taste in music. He's playing the 2000s hit, "This is Why I'm Hot" by MIMS. He's also a master beatboxer. Is there anything he can't do? View Now

Dancing Around The World

Dancing Around The World

Even the simplest of film projects can take a lot longer to create than you might think. For example, Matt Bray spent a year and a half creating a four-minute dancing video but we think it was time well spent. Matt traveled the world and danced with over 1000 strangers for this fun music video. We only wish we were involved too! via ProjectOneLife View Now

These Two Images Are The Same Sculpture

French artist Matthieu Robert-Ortis not only bends wires in order to create his incredible sculptures, but he also bends minds as well. When you stand in one space to look at one of his sculptures it looks like one thing, like a deer, but then once you move the image shifts and becomes something else! Our brains can barely comprehend how to look at these amazing works, let alone figure out how he crafts them. View Now

Boy Reunited With Lost Cat After 7 Months Apart

We love the four-legged members of our family just as much as the two-legged ones. When Daniel's cat ran away, he was torn, and as more and more time went by, the family began to think Plumbo might not ever make it back home. But thank's to new microchip technology, they were able to locate Plumbo after he was gone for seven months. Daniels reaction says it all. View Now
