Hayden Ryals’ wedding day was already going to be one of the most important moments of her life. But a little girl made it even more special. The bride had just met the three-year-old, but the bond between them was clear to see. And what happened next brought everyone to tears.
Ryals was born Hayden Hatfield and grew up in Hartford, Alabama. She graduated from Auburn University in 2017 after studying psychology and business. On June 9, 2018, she married Adrian Ryals, a member of the Air Force.
When the couple tied the knot at Shiloh Baptist Church in their hometown, there was a very important guest at their wedding that left the entire congregation weeping. Her name is Skye Savren-McCormick. They had only met the previous day, but they were already linked forever.
