Weddings are considered to be a huge milestone for the bride and the groom, seeing as it is a special occasion, all family members are expected to be present at the event.
However, this was not the case for Marites Diaz-Tiamzon who was initially told that her brother, who is an OFW in South Korea, will miss her wedding day.
KAMI then learned that her brother actually had a surprise up his sleeve as he was able to come home and surprise his sister on her special day.
In an online post, shared by The Philippine Star, Marites was taking a group photo with their family relatives when a random man wearing a face mask suddenly joined in.

The video, which has now garnered over 1.1 million views on Facebook, showed the man taking off his face mask which had the family burst into tears and laughter.
"Sobrang nabigla po talaga at the same time masaya ako nung makita ko siyang papalapit sa amin kasi hindi ko talaga in-expect. Hindi ko hiningi sa kanya na umuwi siya sa kasal ko.
"Dahil alam kong magastos pero umuwi pa rin siya para mas lalong maging meaningful ang araw ng kasal ko," Marites told The Philippine Star.
According to the bride, her brother, who is working in South Korea, initially told them that he would not be able to make it to her wedding day.
"Hindi ko na po in-expect na uuwi siya, dahil hindi rin daw po siya pinayagan at wala raw po budget, kaya hindi na po kami nag-expect talaga na makakadating din siya sa wedding ko.
"Pero sinubukan daw po niya ulit magpaalam sa boss niya at yun nga po pinayagan siya makauwi ng Pinas for one week," she added, as written in the report by The Philippine Star.
It can be worth noting, however, that Marites's wedding was held back on January 19, 2020, before the pandemic even began.
