Christmastide Movie Scene~A Christmas Eve Wedding

Merry greetings, everyone! Today I'm participating in Heidi's Monthly Link Up with a lovely scene for this month's topic: a Christmastide movie scene.

Now,  incase my review of Eloise at Christmastime didn't convince you to watch that movie, here is yet another post about it. (Ha. You can't escaaaape)  It's toward the end of the film, and rather spoilery, but I know practically all my readers read spoilers (heh heh)  so I don't feel like I need to warn anyone. ;P

In this scene, the big moment of Brooks and Rachel's Christmas Eve wedding is here. Rachel is a stunning bride in her snowflake bedazzled wedding gown. Light, fluffy flakes fall on her and her father as he leads her up the aisle to her waiting groom.

Meanwhile, Eloise (with Nanny close behind) races up from the basement in an attempt to stop the wedding. Brooks had locked her in a closet down there because she had found out his horrible motive for marrying Rachel-her money.

The door is guarded by Prunella, but Eloise and Nanny find another way to view the wedding-from a crawl space/ air vent tunnel thingamig/ I don't know what it's called so let's move on. :P

The pivotal moment comes. The guests all wait to hear Rachel say the two words, "I do." But it doesn't happen. She gasps out, "I'm sorry. I can't do this."

"Why?" asks Brooks.

Suddenly the doors burst open and Rachel's face lights up into a smile when she sees Bill standing at the end of the aisle. "That's why," she says.

The music swells and it's all so sweeeeeetttt.


Oh my, this scene makes me so happy. :) 

Thank you so much, Heidi, for the link up, and Merry Christmas to you all! :)


  1. Yayyyyyyyyyy! They got married! (Bill and Rachel, I mean, not the other guy.) And yes--I think we could all see that coming ;-)

    1. Oops, maybe I should have been more clear. Bill and Rachel don't actually marry in this scene, although I assume they do soon after. :) They should have, though! That would have been even better. :D
      Hahaha, yes, it was rather obvious. ;)

    2. Oh, no, it's okay--I knew they might not get married ACTUALLY RIGHT THEN AND THERE, but what I meant was, they're GOING to get married. So everything is cool! (I don't like Brooks. He has a Face. If you Know what I Mean.) ;)

    3. Jessica,
      Oh, good, glad you understood! :) Do you mean how he always looks so "fake" in his emotions and such? He's just such a flatterer. :( Plus Bill is so much handsomer. ;)
      Merry Christmas Eve!

  2. I loved this post! After your first post about it, I actually went and watched the movie "Eloise at Christmastime" on Youtube . . . I certainly did not regret it! It was a fun, lighthearted movie. I could relax watching it. Bill is MAH BABY. I love him so much. Eloise is naughty but hilarious! Oh, it did make me rather mad that Rachel stayed with Brooks right up to the last minute because she was doing what her father wanted, but it turned out all right in the end. So I enjoyed it. Thanks for letting me know about it!!

    P.S. I also watched Eloise of the Plaza (I think that's what it's called). One thing puzzles me. Why do they never show her mother's face or give her any lines?

    1. Rosie,
      Ohh my, I'm SO glad you watched it and you liked it! (I watch it on youtube too, heh heh)

      I know, I could see why you were mad at her for that. Honestly, who would even think of picking Brooks over Bill?? I just think that Rachel is a very introverted maybe, easily influenced by others, especially her father. I can see why she wouldn't want to hurt him. But I'm so glad that she "stopped" the wedding before Bill got there-I think it shows her strength more than if Bill had already arrived and then she said "stop". haha Does that make sense?

      I'm not sure about that! Maybe it has something to do with the books, but I haven't read them. It is odd that she never has a part in the movies!

      Thank you so much for telling me you watched it! :D

    2. Oh yes, thank YOU for telling me about it :)

      Hmmmm . . . well I do think she was easily influenced by others, but I don't think it was because she was introverted. I am a VERY introverted person myself and am exactly the opposite of Rachel. I'm not easily influenced by others and I've never "not know" my own mind . . . But she chooses Bill in the end! Cheers!

    3. Rosie,
      Oh! Did you think I meant she was easily influenced because she's introverted? I just reread my comment and realized my thoughts were running together. haha ;)

      No, I agree, I don't think being introverted makes someone easily able to be influenced at all. But I do think she is more of an introvert than an extrovert since she's usually kind of quiet throughout the film. Which I can relate to, because I can be a rather quiet person myself, if I'm in a group setting or such. :)

      Sorry for the confusion! I hope you're having a very Merry Christmas Eve!

  3. How cute! I didn't realize they'd made a movie version of the Eloise book, but I will have to scout around for it.

    1. Hamlette,
      I hope you enjoy it if you find it! :D Merry Christmas Eve!

  4. "It's toward the end of the film, and rather spoilery, but I know practically all my readers read spoilers (heh heh) so I don't feel like I need to warn anyone. ;P" HAHAHA! I'm certainly not going to contradict you on that one! :D

    This was a very fun post, Natalie, and you did an excellent job of playing out the scene for us. Bill's face in that first picture! Aww! Poor guy! Honestly, why do they always have to wait until the last minute? All the agonies they suffer for nothing! Haha! :) I really should give this movie a try. It sounds very interesting. :D

    1. Miss March,
      Heh heh, I suspected someone would comment about that. ;)

      Aww, thank you! And oh my, yes, poor Bill! I feel sooo bad for him throughout the movie...except for when he's happy. Then I feel very happy for him. :D
      I hope you can try it out! Do tell me if you see it. :) Have a wonderful Christmas Eve!

  5. Oh, this is so sweet!!! (Incidentally, I love the idea of falling snow as the bride's coming up the aisle...) And I just love movies/tv episodes where they take it all the way to the wedding and then the "right guy" comes running in. ;D

    Speaking of weddings, I actually had a winter wedding scene in mind too, but I'm planning to review that film for the Cinderella party so decided to hold off on it for this Inklings (so as not to give too much wonderfulness all at once ;)), but maybe I'll use it next year!

    1. Heidi,
      Isn't it, though?? So lovely. :) And ohh, yes...have you seen many movies or episodes that do that? I actually can't think of many right now, but I'm SURE there are some....hmm.

      Oh, I can't wait to find out what scene you thought of using! :D Merry Christmas Eve!!

  6. WAAAAAWWW. I wanna watch this now :D


I love comments as much as I love hot tea and a good book.....well, nearly, anyway!
Please keep your words kind and edifying.
