video is missing a major part of the story

This story appears in one of Rabbi Paysach Krohn's books. He thoroughly researches every story he writes. A key element of the story is missing in your video. The bride who gave away the larger hall was inspired by the deeds of our matriarch Rachel. The bride went to the synagogue the Shabbos before her wedding day and listened to the weekly Torah reading of Parshas Vayaitzay. When she was reminded how Rachel gave up her husband to Yaakov, exhibiting the honorable trait of vatrunus, giving in willingly to others, she was inspired to do the same and give up the hall she had reserved to the other bride who wanted it so badly. Without this point, I feel that your video is lacking the 'soul' of the story and missing out on teaching an important lesson.

Wonderful Example

This was a wonderful story with a great message. We should all strive to be a blessing wherever and whenever we can. Even though it shouldn't be our goal; we are blessed in return when we are a blessing to others.
