After Becoming Paralyzed at His Bachelor Party, Groom Marries the Love of His Life
The wedding was delayed for seven months after Brett Greenhill's injury.
After a horrific accident during a bachelor party last year left a would-be groom paralyzed, he recently married the love of his life, proving love truly knows no bounds.
The love story of Brett Greenhill and Meg Alexander took a tragic turn in December 2016. They were celebrating a joint bachelor-bachelorette party in Naples, Fla., when he dove head-first into the ocean and struck a sand bank.
He was left paralyzed from the neck down.
It was just two months before they were supposed to tie the knot.
“It still hurts, but we're moving forward now, so that's the way it has to be,” he tearfully told Inside Edition
Their February 2017 wedding was canceled, and their focus shifted to Greenhill's care, including driving him to therapy sessions.
"She’s more than stuck by me, she's been an amazing trooper through this whole process,” he said of his fiancee.
Progress has been slow, but he is making strides with the help of Nextstep Paralysis Recovery Center in Atlanta.
In September, the couple said “I do” before 100 of their closest friends and family in Atlanta, Ga., nearly a year after the accident.
They called the wedding “the best day of their lives” and then took a cruise to Alaska for a honeymoon.
