Just 10 hours after marrying the love of his life, Rowden Go died.

Go, 29, and his fiancee, Leizel, had planned to get married July 8, but in late May he was diagnosed with stage-four liver cancer.

The couple quickly planned a wedding in 12 hours by Go's bedside at Philippine General Hospital because he was unable to leave, and "his dream was fulfilled," a description under a YouTube video of the nuptials says. The couple were joined by family members, including their daughter Zakiah Rowzel.

After saying "I do," Go died June 11.

"It was like a heartbreaking fairytale," the description said.

The video of their wedding, posted by Go's brother Hasset, has gone viral and had more than 5.5 million views as of Friday morning.
