The 2 x 30 back to back episodes, A Canterlot Wedding, follows the magical ponies and the entire kingdom as they try to prepare for the wedding of Princess Celestia’s niece, Cadence, to Twilight Sparkle’s brother, Shining Armor. However, things start to go awry once Twilight Sparkle discovers a dark secret about the bride that could pose problem to the couple in the future.
