Rachelle Chapman became paralyzed from the chest down five years ago at her bachelorette party when a friend playfully pushed her into a swimming pool and her head struck the bottom.
Rachelle told INSIDE EDITION, "I was really nervous that when the accident happened I wouldn't be able to have children."
The wedding went on as planned, with Rachelle in a wheelchair and her groom, Chris Chapman, sitting in a chair so they could exchange vows eye-to-eye.
Rachelle couldn't safely carry a child herself due to high doses of blood pressure medication she must take, so a friend agreed to be her surrogate.

She added, "It's finally a dream come true!"
