On a special episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah gave away a million-dollar wedding to one lucky betrothed couple. After the show, Colin Cowie, event planner to the stars, stressed that the wedding itself isn't as important as recognizing the lifelong promises two people make to each other when entering a marriage.

In the video above, Colin reminds the audience that a wedding is a celebration of "the biggest decision you ever make in your life," and explains why it's okay to "ignore your well-meaning mother," who might think she knows better. After all, the focus should be on the pair featured atop the cake!
