At this wedding, the bride was carrying her groom over the threshold…
Jesse, the groom, wanted to become a soldier from childhood. In 2003, he joined the Marine Corps, but six years later, while serving in Afghanistan, he fell into the epicenter of the explosion. The doctors had to amputate the man’s both legs. “I was conscious all the time,” Jessie recalls. “It was hard, first of all, mentally. But my family kept supporting me all the time. Thanks to the sincere support of my family and the belief in the best, I was able to go through this.” Jesse accepted his new body and learned to live an active lifestyle even without legs.
He met his future wife, Kelly, at a swimming competition. They immediately fell in love and Jesse proposed her in several months.
When the couple shared their wedding photos on Facebook, they aroused universal admiration. People from all over the world left supporting comments under the pictures. But Jesse and Kelly don’t see anything special in their situation.“We are just like any other couple,” they say.
Anyways, they are an example of true love which knows no boundaries. Please share this sweet and inspirational article with your friends!
