Those wedding-day plans changed immediately as this gorgeous bride first ran away from the scene and then went to check on injured people before fleeing Beirut’s Saifi square.

A “beautiful nightmare” describes this scene perfectly. It’s hard not to smile as the picture perfect is shown but within seconds, it all falls to shambles as the explosion is seen in the background. These newlyweds are lucky to be alive. 

This video of the explosion in Beirut shows a more human side of its devastating impact.

Simply horrific. Nobody can ever imagine something like this happening. The bride is so beautiful in this video until her blissful day changed in a split second.

Explosion Turns Wedding Happiness To Horror 

The couple spoke with Reuters to discuss the ordeal.  

“I have been preparing for my big day for two weeks and I was so happy like all other girls, ‘I am getting married’. My parents are going to be happy seeing me in a white dress, I will be looking like a princess,” Dr. Seblani said. 

“What happened during the explosion here – there is no word to explain … I was shocked, I was wondering what happened, am I going to die? How am I going to die?,” the bride continued.
