When two people marry, it’s a day full of love and happiness. But sometimes there’s a hidden story that can make the event almost too poignant. And as some people are keenly aware, life can be all too short. So for the terminally ill, it’s vital to make the best of what little time they have. And for this woman, it was by marrying the man she loved in the most colorful way she could.
Weddings can be emotional. It’s sometimes hard to hold back the tears as the bride walks down the aisle or as the best man, groom and father of the bride each deliver their speeches.
Most often, though, the tears that flow at weddings are tears of joy at seeing a couple making a commitment to each other for the rest of their lives. However, sometimes the ceremony can have a truly tragic tinge. Indeed, for some couples, the famous wedding vow “till death us do part” can take on a real meaning far too soon in their lives.
