Paralyzed groom stands up to wait for his bride at the altar on their wedding day

Paralyzed groom stands up to wait for his bride at the altar on their wedding day

Kent Stephenson has been in a wheelchair after being paralyzed from a Motocross accident in 2009. The accident happened just a few months when he started dating Misti Richeson, who never left his side all throughout his recovery and therapy sessions.

In 2012, a stimulator was implanted in his spine so he can again move his hips, legs, and toes. This also enables him to occasionally stand. This particular thing became useful to him on his wedding day.

As a tradition, during a wedding a groom waits while standing at the altar as the bride walks down the aisle. Kent wants to do the same for Misti, even if it seems possible knowing that he's paralyzed from the chest down.

But just like a miracle, Kent was there at the altar, standing, when Misti finally walked down the aisle. He was also standing when they exchanged vows, and kissed each other. Kent did not also let their first dance as a married couple be put to waste. He stood up for his wife and they shared a very special dance during the reception.

Their story only proves what love can do to people. It makes us strive for the best and do even the impossible.
