The thing is, Ruby hadn't been to the Philippines since she was four years old. And she wasn't entirely familiar with all the rituals of a traditional Filipino wedding. So in the days leading up the wedding, Ruby made all kinds of faux-pas... but none beats what actually happened during the ceremony...
When Nadine Schweigert decided to walk down the aisle a couple of
