Against all odds, a wedding (10 HQ Photos)

250 1 15

This is the story of two of our Chivers who got married under extreme circumstances.

On October 18th, the night before his wedding, Chad was driving on a poorly lit gravel road on St. James Island in South Carolina when he lost control of his car. His car flipped 4 times and landed upside down in a marsh.

The car began filling with water. Somehow, Chad was able to free himself and walk 70 yards back to the street. At the time, Chad had no idea how bad things really were, he was in shock, and all he could think about was missing his wedding. Chad didn't want to let his beautiful bride, Holly, down. Chad walked a mile and a half home to his house.

When the adrenaline wore off (no alcohol was involved btw), Chad felt severe pain in his back and called his mother to bring him to the hospital where doctors informed Chad he had fractured his L1 vertebrae. The doctors also told Chad there would be no wedding the next day. Chad thought about it for a second and replied,

"I'm sorry, that's not an option. I'm getting married tomorrow."

Somehow the doctors were convinced to have an ambulance move Chad from the hospital to a hotel room. Chad had an idea…

On behalf of everybody here at theCHIVE, I’d like to congratulate the newlyweds. Chad, it looks like you chose wisely. Get well soon, buddy.

    It's "James Island" not "St. James Island"
    I'm happy he made it out alive. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
