Longtime creators Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon tied the knot in a beautiful outdoor wedding in California, a ceremony that's been many years in the making. Despite the drama that's surrounded the couple's relationship over the years, their vows have successfully made many TikTok scrollers cry when clips of it reach their For You page.

Given that Alex and Kouvr are influencers who were members of the original Hype House, it makes sense that their wedding would be filled with other influencers and content creators (many of who are their close friends). But with a wedding full of influencers comes some drama, and though it seems Alex and Kouvr tried to reduce the amount of content made about their special day, at least one of their guests has crossed some pretty big lines for views.

Lilah Gibney vlogged the whole wedding and put it online before Alex and Kouvr did.

Within a day of Alex and Kouvr's ceremony, fellow content creator Lilah Gibney posted multiple TikToks about the wedding, stating that she vlogged the whole thing. In total, she posted three different videos with content from the wedding, and her preview of the vlog has received more than six million views and a lot of hate comments.

"Vlogging as a GUEST is INSANE," one user commented, while another noted, "There was literally a sign there that said unplugged event."

Unplugged weddings where the hosts request that guests turn their phones off and leave the picture and video-taking to the professionals are becoming increasingly common, and with a party full of influencers, a request like that likely means the couple-to-be isn't cool with their nuptials being vlogged. Fellow creator Mattie (@mattiesbasemnet) posted about how wild it was that a guest decided to vlog the whole event — and then take it one step further and post about it before the couple does.

"If somebody makes a vlog about my wedding, like a YouTube vlog about my wedding, I don't know — why you would do that?" they said. "It's a wedding. It's not a theme part. Like maybe be in the moment like a little bit."

Both Kouvr and Alex commented on Mattie's video, agreeing with their take. Alex wrote "This is a very valid take," while Kouvr responded with a simple "Period."

Though the couple have not publicly confronted Lilah for her decision to post the vlog, nor have they made content condemning this action, it's started a very serious discussion online about the etiquette of posting about someone's wedding before they do — or even vlogging at all. It seems the general consensus in the comments is to put the phone down when it's someone else's wedding, and photos and video from the event should be saved until the couple has already posted it publicly.

As vloggers themselves, Kouvr and Alex have been very transparent with their wedding process — and Alex even posted a video of his vows to share the moment with his followers. Lilah has since taken the vlog down from YouTube, but the videos on TikTok are still up and garnering views and attention. Though there are some reports that she's apologized for her decision to vlog the wedding, the apology is no longer on any of her social media channels.
