Feel-Good Friday

Chelsie Hill, a woman was was paralyzed after an auto accident wanted to overcome her injury before her wedding day, so she secretly learned to walk with leg braces and a walker. Chelsie did this in secret, and surprised the groom on their wedding day.

A bride who’d dreamed of walking down the aisle her whole life was left paralyzed in a car accident as a high school senior, throwing her future into uncertainty. Yet after meeting the man of her dreams, she summoned the strength to practice walking and surprised the groom by meeting him at the altar on her own two feet.

Chelsie Hill, 29, who hails from Los Angeles, California, married Jay Bloomfield, 34, on Sept. 24 at Hyatt Regency in Huntington Beach.

“Jay had absolutely no idea that I was actually planning, our entire relationship, to walk down the aisle,” Chelsie explained to The Epoch Times. “It’s something that I had to hide from him for a very long time … I had to train for it.”

With her surprise of walking down the aisle, Chelsie stunned the entire congregation. It was not only Jay who was unaware of her plan, but a lot of their friends and extended family had no idea. Attendees would later tell Chelsie that other hotel guests came onto their balconies to watch as she walked down the aisle.

Amazing. I could probably add something here, but the story says it all.

  2. TXNick – Skipping out to practice is a great move, and apparently it worked spectacularly.

    Cathy – Very brave woman.

    RG – It’s such a good story, and the husband started crying while she walked down the aisle.
