Peter and Lisa were exchanging rings when they realized something was not right... and that Phil was in serious danger.

Probably a quick one!

Did the rings have a direct connection with Phil's endangerment? or could this have happened in another situation?

Was the type of wedding relevant? Church, synagogue, temple, registry office, beach, exotic place? Were they in hot air balloons? Underwater? Somewhere else different to conventional weddings?

Interesting!

Is it a scuba-diving wedding? At this moment, do they know where Phil is? Or just that he's in danger? Are they actually underwater while exchanging rings? Is Phil underwater while they are exchanging rings? Any marine animals involved?

Was Phil supposed to be involved in the ring ceremony?

Tsunami? YES!!!!

I guess it's time for a

***********SPOILER*****************
Peter and Lisa loved each other and decided to get married - under the sea. They invited some guests for the ceremony which would take place underwater, among them Phil. However, Phil was late and couldn't get on time on the boat that would take the guests offshore.
The ceremony was going fine but suddenly, when they were exchanging rings, water visibility dropped to near zero, a strong current was felt and they had to emerge.
Having realized it was a tsunami*(read below) and that Phil wasn't safe among the guests, they correctly assumed he was at the beach/in town, and that he was in serious danger.

*This is the report of a diver during the tsunami of Dec 2004.
