Newlyweds Make A Surprise Visit To The Groom’s Sick Grandmother!
What was supposed to be a day of happiness and joy quickly turned into something quite the opposite for Peg McCormack. On the morning of her grandson’s wedding, the 91-year-old suffered a fall, which rendered her bedridden for until she was evaluated by the doctors for checkout. There was nothing more Mrs. McCormack wanted to do more than to attend the November 7 celebration in Madison, New Jersey.
Little did Mrs. McCormack know that her grandson wasn’t about to let this accident ruin the day. Without letting Mrs. McCormack know, Brian Kurtulik and his new wife Lauren came up with a plan to include her in the day’s festivities. Alongside wedding photographer Rachel Nolan of Hello Gorgeous Photography in tow, the couple made a surprise visit to the hospital before heading to the reception.
“She was so excited to watch us get married. She was literally living for this wedding. So we brought the wedding to her.” – Bride Lauren
The groom’s grandmother wasn’t expecting any visits that day, but she was already dressed up in her wedding attire. The look on her face when she saw them speaks more than a thousand words!
“When we walked into that room — oh, she was just floored. She just kept saying, ‘I can’t believe you’re here!’ and thanking them profusely for coming to see her. The way she held their hands, touched their faces and just looked at them, you could tell they had such a special bond. I don’t think she let go of Brian’s hand the entire time that we were in that room.” – the photographer told HuffPost
Sadly, the groom’s Grandma died just a month after the wedding.
“Without even knowing it, [visiting her] was the best decision we made that day. Thank god we did this and got to capture this special moment. THIS is what life is all about. We get so lost in the perfect moments and perfect situations, sometimes we forget what’s happening right now.” – Bride Lauren
My wish is that people see these images and realize that wedding days are bigger than the dress and the flowers and the fancy food. They are about the little moments, the ones that you may never get back. Wedding days are about you and your partner together and the new family you are creating.
