Bride gets Surprise at Wedding

Alexandra Price was having the wedding she dreamed of in California, except for one missing piece- her father. Alexandra’s father Andre Pearson has been sick, battling against his illness to stay alive. He has had to move from his Omaha, Nebraska home to Minnesota where he can be close to his doctors at the Mayo Clinic. He has about a year to live, doctors have said that his heart and his kidneys are failing. And he is too sick to qualify for a heart transplant. He has also been deemed too sick to travel to California to see his daughter wed, which is something that Alexandra has come to accept.

However, according to the story on BuzzFeed.com, Andre and his doctors had come up with a way for him to attend and surprise his unsuspecting daughter. Andre surprised his daughter the night before she was due to be wed. In the video, you can see the shock and surprise on her face. Then, tears of joy. Andre was there, in his wheelchair, to hold his daughter’s hand as he walked her down the aisle. I’m sure that there was not a dry eye in the house.

Alexandra said that having her father there for her wedding day made it even more special than she could have imagined. Sam Tabar found the above link on wikipedia which has the video of the surprise and photos from the wedding.
