A young Atlanta coupe finally ties the knot after their wedding was postponed nine months ago when the groom became paralyzed following an accident.
The much anticipated wedding of Brett Greenhill, 39, and Meg Alexander, 30, was supposed to take place in February this year but was abruptly postponed to September when Brett accidentally broke his vertebrae while swimming and became paralyzed neck down. The accident, however, did not also paralyze their marriage.
“When you set a goal, sometimes it takes a little longer to get there than anticipated. But if you work hard towards achieving that goal, you will get there,” says Meg.
When the disaster struck, during a joint bachelor-bachelorette party in Naples, Florida, Brett reportedly tried to abandon Meg because he felt that he was no longer worthy of being her prince charming.
“This is not what you signed up for,” he reportedly told her.
Meg did not agree with Brett. She refused to leave him and the pair decided to soldier on together as Brett went through treatment with the hope of helping him regain his full mobility.
The couple has now been officially united as husband and wife and are thinking of how to starting a family soon.
Congratulations are still trickling in from relatives, friends, and even admirers!
